Pakistan's first Monfortex denim finishing line has been installed at US Denim's facility in Raiwind. It features a width of 2 m and is equipped with a sanforizing unit as well as the Monforts skew system and a Goller desizing unit.

The Fabric processed at US Denim is 30% with Lycra (100% cotton with 5% Lycra) and 70% without Lycra (65% cotton / 35% polyester).

Yarns employed are 100% cotton in the range of 5-16 Ne in the warp and 20 Ne in the weft insertion. Around 30% of products also employ Lycra for additional stretch.
