Fibres and Fabrics

Have you heard of Sophista®? This new functional fibre developed by Kuraray for sports and leisurewear combines the wear comfort of natural fibres with the functional benefits of synthetic fibres. And what about Vectran®?  This is another Kuraray fibre: its five times as strong as steel, making it ideal for protective clothing. KURALON® K-II is a new high-tenacity fibre used in blends with wool, cotton and acrylics. We also supply amaretta™, a unique fine nonwoven fabric made of advanced microfibers that looks like leather.
