Why are functional fabrics important for making sportswear?

In the sportswear industry, functional fabrics play a key role in creating high-performance garments.

These specialized fabrics are specifically designed by textile engineers to enhance performance and comfort during physical activities, for both professional and amateur athletes.

They are created using advanced technologies and fibers, which is what sets these fabrics apart from regular fabrics. Their ability to meet specific performance requirements, such as moisture-wicking, breathability, stretch, and durability have also increased their popularity over the years.

Other benefits of functional fabrics

  • Enhanced Performance: Thanks to their previously mentioned characteristics, functional fabrics enable athletes to stay dry, comfortable, and agile during intense workouts.
  • Improved Comfort: They also ensure comfort by regulating body temperature, minimizing chafing and providing unrestricted movement.
  • Odor Control: Our fabrics incorporate antimicrobial properties that help control odor-causing bacteria.
  • Durability: These fabrics are often resistant to wear and tear, keeping their performance and appearance intact over time.

Common uses for functional fabrics in sportswear

  1. High-performance tops and bottoms: Functional fabrics are used for shirts, leggings, shorts, and jackets, as their moisture-wicking, breathability and stretch properties enhance both comfort and performance.
  2. Compression garments: Compression wear, including compression leggings and sleeves, use functional materials. These fabrics offer graduated compression, providing muscle support, improved blood circulation, and faster recovery.
  3. Outerwear: Outerwear, such as windbreakers and waterproof jackets, take advantage of these special kinds of fabrics to provide protection against the elements.
  4. Footwear: Functional fabrics help in keeping the feet dry, comfortable, and blister-free during physical activities.
