ℹ️ Availability

  • This fabric quickly absorbs heavy moisture (in under 2 seconds!) and soaks it up 20 times faster than organic bamboo cotton fabric, cotton fabric, or hemp knits. If you need your product to keep you dry, our Original Silver Fabric is for you.

  • Our products don’t contain PFOS, PFOA, lead, dioxins, heavy metals, BPA, or any kind of phthalates, including DEHP, DBP, BBP, DINP, DIDP, and DnOP. You can rest assured knowing your skin won’t be exposed to these chemicals. Read Blog Article

  • This fabric features SILVADUR Antimicrobial to keep bacteria, fungi, or algae from growing on the fabric. It also controls odors and keeps fabric smelling fresh.

  • Multiple tests have proven that SILVADUR is safe for the skin; it’s been tested on bamboo, cotton, and polyester. The testing used 10 times the recommended amount of SILVADUR to make sure it’s safe.

  • Two layers of Zorb will work as well as 8 layers of flannel, 6 layers of french terry, and 5 layers of organic fleece.

  • This fabric cannot be washed before stitching or serging it between 2 layers of fabric.

  • Chemicals (like super absorbent polymers) aren’t used in Zorb products, so their super absorbency lasts as long as the fabric does.

  • CPSIA certified, meeting stringent standards by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission on lead and phthalates and flammability.

  • All Zorb fabrics are designed to absorb more over time. Using multiple layers of Zorb can increase how much your product absorbs. You can make your product as absorbent as you’d like.

Safe for Sensitive Skin

This one-of-a-kind, super absorbent fabric captures and thoroughly absorbs moisture, making it comfortable to use for any purpose. It’s also hypoallergenic, so you’re less likely to have an allergic reaction. Antimicrobial silver has been tested on bamboo, cotton, and polyester to ensure it’s safe for consumer use. It reduces the risk of bacterial growth and acts as an antiperspirant for your fabric.

It’s All in the Fiber

Our fabrics are designed to be super absorbent so you can create the products you need without needing to constantly replace them! We make our fabrics with the most absorbent fibers available. The fibers in the fabric are then twisted together to create an even more absorbent fabric.

On Beat with Your Brand

This fabric is designed to be sewn in between layers, so you can produce a super absorbent product that matches your brand.

This fabric is ideal for use in bibs, cage liners, cloth diapers, diaper inserts, dish mats, dog diapers, face masks, activewear, menstrual pads, nursing pads, bed pads, soakers, period panties, pet potty pads, and washcloths.

The absorbency will allow the fabric to soak up more and leave fewer wet spots. If you need a fabric that will last for years, Zorb Original Silver Fabric is perfect.

UPF Rating: 50+
☀️ Read about UV Protection in Fabrics - Your Total UPF Rating Guide

Important Note about UPF Ratings:
Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) indicates how much UV radiation (both UVB and UVA) a fabric allows to reach your skin. For example, a UPF 50 fabric blocks 98 % of the sun’s rays and allows 2% (1/50th) to penetrate, thus reducing your exposure risk significantly. A UPF 30 fabric blocks 97% of UV rays and allows roughly 3% of UV transmission. UPF 15 indicates that the fabric blocks roughly 93% of UV rays and allows about 7% of available UV radiation to pass through.

UPF 10 to 30 = Fair Protection
UPF 30 to 50 = Good Protection
UPS 50+ = Excellent Protection

Product Uses: Reusable panty liners
Zorb purchase

First time buying and using Zorb, absolutely love it! I am making reusable panty liners and it’s perfect! Will definitely purchase again.

Nancy (Huntsville, US)
Works wonderfully to control the rashes that develop under the tummy fold.

Zorb Original Silver Fabric is a wonderful product.

I cut the fabric into 3 inch strips, and use the strips in my belly poouch skin folds, to reduce inflamation caused by friction, humidity, and sweat.
Zorb Silver fabric relieves my itchy, burning skin folds.

I've tried other moisture-wicking fabric with antimicrobial silver, but these small packets are very expensive. I use Zorb Silver fabric because it is less expensive, and helps me feel better - no itching and no odor.

Thanks for a great product !

This fabric is like what I ordered last year except it’s not anti microbial. The stuff I got before this was definitely not what I wanted.

I followed the instructions and this material though quite thin really does absorb a lot, it held up in the wash really well also.
