What is the fabric apple watch band

Fabric Apple Watch band is a part of the cloth watch band. The raw material is superior fabric and leather. You may wonder why the fabric band contains leather material? 

That is because the fabric is a little bit hard. If the fabric touches your skin directly, you may feel uncomfortable so we add a piece of leather to the band inside. The leather piece is soft and smooth, giving you a comfortable feeling. 

Therefore, the fabric Apple watch band is a fabric surface band with leather inside. Soft and hard mix, bringing the band a special texture. Not like the soft silicone band, the fabric Apple watch band has a hard surface which means the band doesn’t fit your wrist perfectly and there is space between the band and your wrist. 

So if you don’t like the silicone band, thinking it totally touches your skin, then you can choose the fabric band which can leave some room between the band and your wrist. On our website, there are fabric bands with the pin and tuck metal buckle.

Every different band has a different size chart. So before buying the fabric band, we need to measure our wrist size and check the size chart of the fabric Apple watch band. You need to use a soft ruler to wrap your wrist around and markdown your size. And check the size chart.

There are also lots of lovely patterns and the top pattern is lattice patterns. Almost every customer will choose the lattice pattern fabric band when they buy this fabric Apple watch band. 

Do fabric apple watch bands get dirty

It is inevitable. Your Apple Watch bands will get dirty regardless of what material it is made of and what color it is. Fabric Apple watch band is a cloth band with a piece of leather inside. Both of them are not waterproof and sweat-proof. That means the band will not only get dry dirt but also get wet dirt, like ink, sweat, and rain. The band absorbs sweat and if you don’t clean the band regularly, the leather inside may get smelly and turn yellow. 

And the fabric surface may get some liquid dirt. If you don’t clean the band right away, the dirt may become a permanent stain on the fabric Apple watch band that you can’t clean up. So it is important to clean the fabric Apple watch band regularly. 

How to clean fabric apple watch band

You should clean the fabric Apple watch band weekly. There are two parts, surface fabric, and inside leather. The piece of leather can’t get wet so it is not a good way to dim the band into water. The best way to clean the fabric band is to wipe the leather inside softly using a little bit of wet cloth and then use a wet cloth to tap on the surface. At last, use a dry cloth to wipe out the water on the band. 

Are the fabric apple watch bands machine washable

For other materials, Apple watch bands can be cleaned under running water or even a washing machine, but we do not recommend doing so unless you can’t get it cleaned in any other manner. 

For the fabric Apple watch band, as we mentioned before the inside is leather, so the fabric Apple watch band can’t be cleaned under the washing machine. The washing machine may tear the fabric and make it deform. The bands need to be treated gently. You’d better clean the fabric Apple watch band by hand.

Can I use rubbing alcohol or baking soda to clean my fabric Apple watch band 

You can use alcohol to clean the silicone Apple watch band or the metal Apple watch band. However, don’t use fabric or leather bands because the alcohol changes the material texture and decreases the service life.  

Baking soda is used to clean all sorts of things. It can be used to clean the Apple Watch bands and can potentially help reduce any odors lingering on them. 

However, baking soda is an abrasive cleaning material and hence should be used with caution. It is also not recommended to use it with materials like leather, wood, and metal. 

The fabric Apple watch is made from fabric and leather, so the alcohol and baking soda are not suitable for the band. 

How do you make a fabric watch band and how much

You can make a fabric watch band by yourself. Only need to pay for the adaptor and buckle which are under $1.

Step 1: items needed

Some fabric cloth. You can find it at your house. There would be some fabric-made items that you don’t use anymore, then you can use them as your watch band’s raw material. 

Step 2: cut the fabric into the size

Measure your wrist and cut the fabric into that size. Wrap the soft ruler around your wrist and mark the size. Then cut the fabric into the size with two parts. 

Step 3: sew cloth parts on the machine

To begin, you can sew the retainer piece of material to the band piece. For the band itself, fold the material over 1/4 inch on one edge and the other edge over 1/4 inch as well so that no frazzled edge would be showing, and would leave enough space to insert the buckle. 

Step 4: insert adaptor and buckle 

Install the two adapters and buckle on the band, then a simple fabric Apple watch band finish. You can install it on your Apple Watch now! You may notice that there is no leather piece on the band. 

Because fabric band with leather inside is difficult to make and the cost is higher. So you would like to make a fabric band yourself, just simply use the fabric cloth which is easier.
