Cambric is a yarn-died, plain-weave cotton fabric. Cambric is also known as 'Chambray'. This type of fabric is probably named after the linen weaver Jean-Baptiste from Cambrai in France, who, as legend has it, was the first person to produce this type of fabric. The 'frosted effect' is typical for the smart casual quality of these shirts. Fine white threads are woven into the fabric. For this reason, Chambray is also known as 'faux monochrome', i.e. apparently monochrome fabric.
