Ponte Di Roma
‘Ponte Di Roma’ roughly translates as Roman Bridge, as the fabric’s structure resembles classic roman bridges – which is where the inspiration for this name came from. This soft and sturdy fabric is a double-knit material, which essentially means there are two layers of fabric knitted together with two sets of needles. Ponte Roma is a thicker fabric, with a slight horizontal ribbed appearance, and is available in lightweight, midweight and heavyweight varieties.
