Textile directions for swimwear: glide
Mar '09
Function, including quick dry, remains key in providing added performance to competitive and fitness swimwear combined with technical constructions that allow the water to glide over the body with reduced drag. Mipan regen, recycled nylon, provides ecological aspects especially when blended with low heat set creora eco H-450.

In keeping the desired streamlined finish, look to thermo bonding seams for an ultimate smooth result or visulaize the use of contrasting colored flat lock stitching incorporating iridescent and fluorescent threads for contrast against predominantly black and dark bases.

Transfer prints feature in subtle symbol and logo form for the regular wimmer who desire the function of a professional product but with a hint of fashion. Metallic pewter and changeant accents feature for inserts using high gloss and cationic cross-dyed effects for a permanent finish. High tech knits get lighter but don't lose the opacity or the stretch content, which can be worked through panels in different degrees of power offering core support where it is needed.
