Our Love Affair With Lycra – What Is It All About?
Coco Chanel a famous French fashionista once said: “Fashion has two purposes: comfort and love. Beauty comes when fashion succeeds.” Fashion fabric plays a crucial role in how much comfy a swimsuit, a dress or a coat would be. And without any doubt, outfits made from Lycra fabrics are more than amazing.
Also known as spandex, Lycra is a synthetic, polymeric fiber. It`s comprised of the rubbery content of polyester in addition to the tougher parts such as urethanes. The constituents, when fabricated together allow suppleness of your garment, while bolstering the fabric. This combo presents a flexible yet controllable material. Excellent!
Here at HUALLEN INDUSTRIAL, our love affair with lycra has been going on for decades, and it`s easy to see why. Lycra fabric has become a favorite choice for millions of people both as an innerwear and outwear garment. Seen first on the market as an undergarment that helped in the shaping of the figures of women, Lycra has now changed the textile and fabric world over the past few decades and is now used in “high-fashion” clothing for all people, regardless of their age, size and sex.
Apart from presenting you with durability, Lycra has a unique ability to hold on to colors longer for extended periods, does not show any forms of fading and resistant to dirt and stains.
