Professional Fabric Types and Colors
Our professional line of academic regalia comes in your choice of two different but related fabrics: Seville, and Islander Polyester. Each comes in a variety of color choices.
Seville: History of about 20 years for academic regalia. Made by one of the largest mills in the USA with VISA anti stain protection. The weave is a gabardine, which provides for a very strong structure, and has excellent wrinkle resistance. It also tends to be somewhat cooler than Islander. Constructed from 100% polyester this fabric can also be washed in an emergency. Like Islander however, the velvet panels are not washable and eventually your robe must be dry-cleaned.
In general, Seville comes in the following colors: Navy, Purple, Bluegrass, White, Coffee Bean, Coppertone, Black, Royal, Burgundy, Spruce, Ivory, Wine, Red, Silver, Slate Blue, and Sapphire. Color swatch cards are available on request. See the color chart below.
