Our PYRATEX® core fabric is the perfect stepping stone for those brands looking to switch from high-performance synthetic fabrics to natural ones.
It is a form-fitting fabric that blends organic cotton and a degradable alternative to traditional elastane. The composition of the elastane in the yarn is the same raw material as normal Spandex, but with an added technology (a fruit polymer) to make it degradable. Made with low lubricant/finish oil content, it has low levels of sulphated ash, phosphorus and sulphur (SAPS). At its end-of-life, it smartly breaks down in soil without releasing any harmful materials.
The organic cotton sustains the health of soil, ecosystems and people by using natural processes that benefit the environment and promote a good quality of life for all involved.
Compared to regular cotton, organic cotton reduces field emissions from fertilizer, energy use, and needs less irrigation.
Cotton fiber is highly breathable
