This fabric is produced in our state-of-the-art production plant in Mouscron (Belgium) and then shipped to our manufacturing plants for clothing all over the world.
In this new minifilm that was made during a photoshoot in Ireland last week, you can see just how Flexothane® makes the difference.
About the fabric:
Flexothane® respects the original ‘classic’ rules of good workmanship, a balanced combination between the properties of the base knitting and a high grade hydrophilic layer applied by state of the art coating technology, which guarantees a high and durable quality and comfort for the wearer. We use a PA 6.6 (which guarantees high colour fastness, excellent RF welding properties of the seams, ...) weft knitted base fabric which with an optimized strength and elasticity balance. That makes Flexothane® Classic such a unique and better product than the competition.
