Few style evolutions have been as remarkable as that of the sweatshirt. From its origins in Medieval Europe to its powerful presence in today’s fashion world, the sweatshirt has become both a style icon and a statement piece. Looking back at the history of the sweatshirt – with its roots in sport and fashion – makes it easy to understand why this has long been an essential item.
What is a sweatshirt made of?
A sweatshirt is made with sweatshirt fleece, which is a heavy fabric that is finished on one side and has a soft, fluffy nap on the other. The garment is designed to be worn with the finished side out and the napped side close to the skin, so the air trapped by the nap will help retain body heat.
