South Korea's mountaineering, outdoor apparel and gear maker, Black Yak has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with textile company Hyosung, to produce functional clothing such as T-shirts and innerwear, which will be made using odour-neutralizing materials beginning from next year. Black Yak's initiative will help in expansion of its business.

Black Yak and Hyosung will work towards developing highly functional fabric that will be used in Black Yak's clothes, according to a Korean daily. For the first time ever in Korea, Hyosung has created functional nylon and polyester yarn product “Freshgear” and spandex material “creora Fresh” to eliminate sweat smell or foot odour. Such products are used in the making of clothes that are directly in contact with the human body such as sportswear, innerwear and stockings.

This innovative step will enable both the firms to spread out their presence in the global textile and fashion market. (RR)
