Bamboo fiber is 4 times more absorbent than cotton.


COOLMAX« is a high technology unique, specially developed to the point to keep its users dry for absolute comfort. COOLMAX « fabrics are made from a polyester Dacron fibre that covers a wide area. This special 4-channel fibre forms a transport system that allows the evacuation of moisture from the skin outward. COOLMAX « dries then faster than any other fabric and then acts on the body thermoregulation. Hydrophobic, it keeps 8 times less moisture than Nylon and 14 times less than cotton.

Cotton was known in India since ancient times; in Peru, found cotton fabrics likely dating back 2500 years BC. Grown in the 17th century North America, it was introduced in Europe in the 18th century. Textile fibre incorporated by the silky filaments that wrap cotton seeds; It is composed of approximately 94% of cellulose. An essential characteristic of the quality of the fibre is the length of the fiber. Short fibres are less than 25 mm, the long fibers are superior to 28.5 mm; These are usually combed. It brings: comfort on the skin, hygienic material. Cotton is able to absorb 10% of its weight in water, without giving the impression of being wet. There is an excellent absorbency, and a holding capacity for sweat components. More cotton will virtually not load static and it is stranger to allergies. It adapts to very high washing temperatures (if its dyes are solid). Maintenance: No constraints. Supports the great heats and the machine.


Derived from the spandex, synthetic fiber, including the particularity is its very high elasticity.


Term composed from the words "elastic and polyurethane", a generic term for high elasticity wire. If extension under a force of traction to 3 times its length, he quickly resumed its shape when the traction ceases to be applied. Examples: Dorlastan, Glospan, Amey, Lycra.

This fiber can stretch up to 7 times its length and immediately recover its original length as soon as the voltage stops. It can be used in all fabrics and blends as well as synthetic natural fibres. It is never used alone. Lycra provides the elasticity necessary to underwear that better follow the movements of the body and allows them to keep their shape and size initial.

Synthetic material, son resistant, flexible, relatively elastic, easy maintenance. Examples: Meryl, Tactel.


Animal origin. Filament yarn obtained after reeling from the cocoon produced by the larva of a butterfly silk fibre is very absorbent: it can absorb up to 30% of its weight and keep 12%. Poor conductive of heat, its heat capacity is very large. It is thin, elastic and flexible. Wrinkle-free and lightweight, silk thread is white and very bright. It is 3 times stronger than wool. Great softness. Shine. Gives incomparable fabrics by their beauty and their falling. Maintenance: Delicate to maintain its qualities. Cold water, by hand. Use mild detergents. Does not support heat.
