Every time before taking off on a trip, we have been faced with the dilemma of ‘how to pack clothes’, so we can fit maximum clothes into limited space. do we fold them or do we roll them? It is a million dollar question when it comes to packing your clothes for a long trip. We have the answer – roll them! It is a tried and tested method. Following are three main reasons why rolling clothes for packing will never disappoint you.
Indeed, when it comes to packing a lot of clothes in one bag, rolling saves the day! It manages space in the bag in the best way.

Folding, on the other hand, covers more surface area of your backpack and/or suitcase. When it comes to packing a backpack, without a second thought use rolling method for your clothes.
This one factor entirely depends on how well you roll your clothes. First, you must flatten your clothes, fold them properly in a long rectangular shape and then start rolling them. This will help you give a proper and compressed roll to your clothes. Silks, especially, should be flattened, loosely wrapped in a cotton sheet, and then rolled to avoid pressure-folding. If you are carrying ironed and folded clothes, roll the folds. This avoids pressure-folds to develop and creasing of clothes and you also do not need to iron them before use.
