Home • Information Hub • 360° Softness Solutions For Activewear and Intimates

The achievement of softer, flatter and more secure seams is the goal of technologists as they develop active wear, intimates and other apparel in an ever increasing array of high tech fabrics.

To ensure that a garment will be fit for purpose and can withstand the strain from repeated wear throughout its life cycle, the designer must consider seam strength, appearance, required stretch, bulkiness and softness. Seams that come into direct contact with the skin should be secure and yet soft to avoid potential irritation to the skin.
