Singtex, a manufacturer of outdoor functional fabrics, has developed an eco-friendly moderate stretch fabric with long-lasting performance, S.Leisure. It features comfort stretch with breathability, fast-dry, lightweight and good recovery while emitting less carbon footprint. S.Leisure is recyclable and designed to replace fabrics with 6 per cent spandex.

Pursuing comfort and outlook, spandex is usually mixed with cotton or polyester and accounts for a small percentage of the final fabric. The dyeing process of S.Leisure is at least 20 per cent more energy efficient than spandex. The energy savings of 3000 yards could supply 10 years of drinking water for an individual and 1 month household electricity. The carbon footprint each S.Leisure t-shirts saves is equal to the carbon absorption of a tree each day, S.Leisure said in a press release.

Other than being eco-friendly, S.Leisure also has excellent properties suitable for athleisure, training and sports apparel. It has better color fastness and flexibility so consumers can enjoy their garments longer. The comfort stretch fabric comes with great wicking ability making it fast dry and breathable. It has a soft touch to the skin, lightweight and easy to care for. (RR)
