The Rise of Technical Fabric in Modern Fashion

In the past, aesthetics were the primary driver when it came to picking a fabric for clothing. Today, performance is equally valued, as people want clothing that they can move around in easily while also looking great. As technology advances over the years and textiles with enhanced properties are created, technical fabric has become more accessible. It’s also increasingly common with the rise of athleisure and more common use of athletic wear. 

Unique Properties and Uses of Technical Fabric

Technical fabrics are known for their unique properties that make them ideal for clothing that is going to get a lot of wear. They often provide moisture-wicking, water-repellent qualities that keep the wearer comfortable and dry. They also offer breathability, flexibility, and, in some cases, sun protection or even flame resistance. Due to these properties, technical fabrics are a great choice when it comes to outdoor clothing, athletic wear, healthcare uniforms, industrial clothing, or everyday fashion that needs to resist the elements. 

How to Care For and Maintain Technical Fabric

While technical fabric is tough in nature, it’s still important to take care of it to ensure longevity and ultimate performance. When washing clothing made from technical fabric, turn the garment inside out and wash with a gentle detergent. Avoid the use of fabric softeners. We also recommend air drying your technical fabric. Don’t iron if possible. 

Technical Fabric vs. Traditional Fabrics 

Technical fabric stands out from other fabrics because it’s durable while looking great at the same time. It combines desirable qualities from other fabrics for an exceptional solution to your need for an advanced material. With moisture management, a comfortable feel, and versatility, you can’t go wrong with technical fabric. Cotton, bamboo, and linen are good alternatives if you’re looking for something similar to technical fabric.
