With Techno Shirt, Canclini 1925 is revolutionising world of fabrics for shirts through a line which brings together high performance of technical fabrics with traditional and formal look. The combination between technological innovation and made in Canclini creativity, Techno Shirt restyles traditional concept of shirt in a modern, trendy and green version.

It is a collection where technology, performance and eco-innovation are merged, based on an approach which expresses a research and development pathway intrinsic to the essence of the Canclini 1925 product ranges.

What really makes Techno Shirt extraordinary is also the great versatility of this product range, which consists of three lines: Biker, Performante and Dice. These three creations are entirely manufactured using man-made fibres, and they are able to combine the style background of the company from Como with the highest technical performances.

For example the use of polyamide with its intrinsic ability to absorb and manage humidity, allows for thermal regulation by the body and for garment transpiration. These characteristics make the Techno Shirt range a line capable of introducing fabrics which offer both wellbeing and comfort: thin, soft and always impeccable, even after having been used for hours.

These garments are so extraordinarily lightweight and soft that they can be worn like a second skin, perfectly following all the movements of the body without ever giving up on elegance. Lastly, they are very easy to wash and they dry very rapidly, as well as require minimal ironing. As a consequence, the performance levels of the most technical fabrics meet the traditional outfit, provides an answer to modern-day men’s requirements in terms of comfort, flexibility and high yield in shirts.

A great point of strength of this line are the three projects which make up the whole range, each of them focused on absolutely unique requirements, style and functions: Biker, a fabric produced with a shuttle loom; Performante, a fabric which is knitted but printed in order to give it the typical yarn-dyed effects; and Dice, a knitwear fabric.

Biker is made of 88 per cent polyamide and 12 per cent elastane. It is an innovative fabric for men’s shirts. The items in this range have preserved the Canclini 1925 cotton soul, although with a future-oriented approach, resulting in a unique patented fabric where a recycled nylon fabric is used. This approach has been chosen in order to keep focusing strongly on product sustainability exactly because plastic materials, more specifically polyamide fibres, can be recycled indefinitely without ever becoming waste, thus continuously regenerating their life cycle. For the weft of Biker, a Nylon 6,6 fibre is used, obtained due to the mechanical regeneration of waste raw materials from the manufacturing company and so this range has obtained the prestigious GRS certification (Global Recycled Standard).

GRS is an actual environmental statement, verified by third-party organisations which includes all products made at least with 20 per cent recycled materials, in this case pre-use recycling. Biker has also

been filed as a Utility Model patent, confirming the undoubtable innovative content of the product. Moreover, for this special fibre, an ad-hoc finishing has been studied, which gives it a pleasant, bi-stretch and crisp hand, even though the garment always remains extremely pleasant and warm to the touch. With Biker, shirts too can finally include all the characteristics of sports garments and technical apparel.

The Performante fabric is a run-proof and innovative item, unique in terms of the performance levels it can achieve, due to its cutting-edge composition: 27 per cent Lycra and 73 per cent polyamide fibre. It is a product manufactured using Nylon 6 (33dtex titre with 28 threads), with a patented textile structure allowing for a reduction of the fabric thickness by as much as 50 per cent. Thanks to the use of digital printing, the range includes patterns and shapes which are truly surprising and that feature three-dimensional effects, with the pattern printed directly on the fabric surface, using acid and pre-metallised colourings for a perfect colour yield. Performante, therefore, offers a contemporary, streamlined and homogeneous look, combined with extremely comfortable and practical wearability. Lightweight but resistant, natural to the touch but impalpable, it is characterised by unprecedented body fit.

Dice is the Techno Shirt line made of yarn-dyed jersey, consisting of 91 per cent polyamide and 9 per cent elastane, combined with the traditional colours of high-end shirts for example sky-blue, navy, grey and black, with micro armature and false plains. Within this range, hyper-traditional graphics meet a technical fabric for an unexpected and successful combination. Dice is ideal for all traditional outfits which can be extremely versatile and highly performing.
