SPORTS LUXE:  Stretch Velvet and De-Luxe Foiled Stretch Velvet

Opulent stretch velvets are becoming strong in the Sports Luxe sector, creating a casual yet sophisticated style.  The traditional cropped pile surface plays on the texture and sensory trend.  Its exceptional softness, total comfort and high quality velvet pile will bring your garment to the forefront of the Sports Luxe choice.  Our Stretch Velvet stock range gives you an array of colours from luxury to classic pallets to work with.  

Also suitable for sublimation printing.

Our De-Luxe Foiled Stretch Velvet range is also the perfect choice to compliment any Sports Luxe garment.  Due to the foil application, it takes it to the next level of sophistication.  It is however not recommended to use as a performance fabric in an intense workout as it can be susceptible to perspiration and rubbing, however it is the perfect fabric to use in that favorite piece to wear too and from your workout to complete your look.


Advanced Recycled Vita Power is a brand new heavy weight version of our standard Advanced Recycled Vita quality. Created specifically with a heavier weight in mind, this extra feature gives you support and fabric coverage in areas that need it most. A great fabric choice for Active sports garments that are designed to shape, support and enhance the silhouette.  Made from the same Econyl® recycled Nylon fibre, this component puts this basecloth at the forefront of a sustainable and high performance fabric choice. Also, with the benefits of INVISTA® LYCRA® fiber, it holds shape and  retention, which is an essential requirement for the sports industry.
