Isko, the world’s leading producer of premium quality denim, displayed the new Isko Arquas 5.0, the latest generation of its innovative fabric collection for performance and outdoor apparel, at the Performance Days expo, in booth C18+C19, hall C1. The functional fabric fair for sports textiles was held on November 28 and 29, 2018, in Munich, Germany.

From its very creation, the Isko Arquas platform has been bending the rules of fashion, activewear and outdoor with its performance-focused innovative fabrics. Greatly influenced by Isko’s expertise in woven technologies, in addition to current sports and active apparel innovation, Isko Arquas includes unique textile concepts created to become the essential ingredients for the sportswear and activewear industries, according to Isko.

With the release of the Isko Arquas 5.0, the bar has been raised again. To demonstrate the different potential end uses of these cross-functional fabrics, Isko created five main categories, underlining many different applications. This way, designers and buyers can appreciate the huge potential of the platform.

Active fabrics are suitable for almost all sports from yoga to fitness to running, whether at high or low impact. They perfectly fulfil the technical requirements of the athleisure and performance-wear markets.

Outdoor fabrics include outdoor clothing which protect the wearer from the elements of nature while on the mountain or the water. Therefore, there are extraordinary demands on comfort, durability, waterproofness and breathability, which make the fabrics ideal for hiking and trekking in any weather.

Hybrid fabrics combine technical performance features with a street-wear attitude. Versatile layers that help you to stay warm and dry in cold weather. Water-repellent jackets, windproof hoodies, and jogging pants that can look good on your camping trip or on the way to work.

Golf fabrics are used for the perfect golf swing, with maximum mobility. These fabrics offer outstanding quality for comfort and athletic performance. With the patented woven technology, one can have freedom of movement for optimum performance and luxury on and off the course.

Horse riding fabrics provide extreme agility required to be one with the horse. These fabrics offer the durability, comfort and maximum flexibility needed. They create a new era for the contemporary equestrian who is looking for fashion, fit, performance, and style.

Countless Isko technologies, already a benchmark in the world of denim, are to be found in the Isko Arquas platform, each selected to bring specific benefits. Among these, Isko Blue Skin enables unrivalled freedom of movement thanks to its 4-way stretch technology. Durable and comfortable, Isko Blue Skin features 3D shaping technology and holding power for a slimmer, toned look with superb shape recovery.

The platform includes fabrics with performance properties such as wind protection, water repellency, and UV protection. Stain repellency, antibacterial, and anti-odour characteristics are featured as well. The latest high-performance finish powered by Isko, Isko Ultradry, ensures that moisture levels against the skin are kept to a minimum and also encourages speedy surface evaporation. (GK)
