Sportswear

Sportswear is a discipline in its own right. Our daily garments are meant to clothe us and express our personality, but good quality sport outfits have around five extra functions.

Now that the athleisure trend has blurred the lines between training outfits and leisure wear, sportswear should comply with many requirements. Users want it to be fashionable, lightweight, water resistant, comfortable and optimally supporting. Add to this the increasing demand for high-tech smart features, and you understand why there’s an entire industry built around sport textiles.

What’s in it for me?

As a textile professional in sportswear, you are often one of the first to recognise new trends. This is not surprising, given the many wishes of the increasing number of demanding customers. Sportswear and aesthetics are no longer two separate concepts, and performance optimisers are wildly popular. This results in a growing number of so-called smart textiles that are both pretty to look at and multifunctional. You can anticipate these trends by working with the latest technical features and add value to your existing products. These features can be functional (elasticity, breathability, and water resistance) or add a sense of luxury through nice smells or even skin moisturising creams.

Just like you, we continually work on better products by keeping an eye out for new textile innovations. We create product solutions that turn sportswear items into true performance optimisers. We make them storm proof and we work with moisture management technologies and sweat activated cooling systems. Our concepts all have one thing in common: they help you serve your high demanding and sportive customers.

Concepts that fit

Clearly, to become a true winner in your field, your sportswear fabrics need extra features that make a difference to your customers. Below, we introduce you to our concepts that help you achieve just that.

EXTREME WHITENESS CONCEPT

"A combination of ingredients that help you get the ultimate white."

PURE PERFORMANCE CONCEPT

"A finish that preserves fibre quality and protects colour shades."

QI-TEX CONCEPT

"What if we could change the way we move, by changing the way we dress?"

There’s no such thing as the ultimate textile softener (or is there?)

Pretty much every piece of garment leaves the plant carrying a softener. It gives the fabric that nice touch so many customers are looking for and makes quite some stages of the production process run smoother. But customer desires are turning into demands, and more and more people want great fabric handle combined with ten […]
