A Bit More About Branded INVISTA SUPPLEX®:

INVISTA's SUPPLEX® yarn offers consumers the feel of cotton with the benefits of advanced fiber technology. Cotton’s natural texture and aesthetics make it the fabric of choice in many garment categories.

Garments made with cotton tend to crease and shrink easily, and they often fade in color. But INVISTA scientists wanted to give consumers the benefits of cotton, without the pitfalls.

They did so by developing the SUPPLEX® yarn, which combines the traditional appeal of cotton with the performance benefits of modern fiber technology.

SUPPLEX® fabrics are:

//  Fully breathable
//  Able to hold their shape
//  Faster drying than cotton
//  Color fast

Why We Love Branded INVISTA LYCRA®:

Combined with INVISTA’S LYCRA® fiber, our SUPPLEX® range has a beautiful bouncy stretch with an exceptional recovery, but more importantly the garments keep their shape. Designers around the world are using LYCRA® fiber, allowing people to wear stylish garments that last. Today, consumers look for fashion & stylish apparel, but they also expect comfort and durability. Garments made with LYCRA® fiber are comfortable, durable and keep their fit.

LYCRA® fabrics are:

//  Comfortable
//  Durable
//  Great stretch with shape retention
//  Exceptional quality


The New True Black Branded INVISTA BLACK LYCRA®:

LYCRA® BLACK fiber has been developed in response to the need for more "natural" looking dark fabrics. Today, brands and retailers are looking for deeper, darker shades that can retain their color intensity. LYCRA® Black fiber stays black, even after repeated wash cycles, thanks to its spun-dyed technology. It also reduces the "grin through shiny effect" in dark fabric shades; a phenomenon which often jeopardises the evenness and intensity of color.

LYCRA® BLACK fabrics are:

//  Comfortable
//  Durable
//  Great stretch with shape retention
//  Reduced grin through shiny effect
