After a year of research and development, Çabasan, a textile firm based in the South-Eastern province of Kahramanmaras, made an announcement that, it has manufactured special fabrics, which can relax or cool down its wearer.

As per Sahin Balcioglu, Chairman of the firm, during the research, a completely natural mixture was applied on the fabric, which formed a non-visible coat.

Explaining it further, Balcioglu said that, once the customer wears it, the natural ingredients of the coating material burst out, due to movements in the outfit, thereby, giving out a cooling effect. The other type of fabric has a similar kind of coating with caffeine content, and this helps relax the wearer.

While continuing with its introduction of innovative goods, Balcioglu said that, the firm is also intending to manufacture, anti-bacterial, non-flammable, insect-repelling and dirt and grease repelling fabrics.

While the province of Kahramanmaras is on a constant move of surging its export capacity, Çabasan has introduced studies, which will aid in maintaining this growth. Further more, in order to hunt for names for their new goods, Çabasan has teamed up with the city's Sütçü Imam University, and has been receiving 463 suggestions from students.

Of the various names received, a jury decided upon the following names such as anti-bacterial fabric be called Anti-B; Fabriclean for dirt and grease repelling fabric; fabric that gives cooling effect should be called Coolife; Unblaze for non-flammable woven fabric; Erke for fabric coating with caffeine and Antinsect for insect repelling fabric.

With its foundation in 1996, Çabasan produces many varieties of fabrics including viscon, cotton, synthetic and woven fabrics and has the capacity to manufacture 25 ton a day.

Çabasan exports 90 percent of its production and with its widespread reach of its research and development studies, it has managed to develop a scientific relationship with various universities.
