What are the fabrics used in your products? Back to Top
SPANDEX or elastane (elastano) is a synthetic fiber known for its exceptional elasticity. It is stronger and more durable than rubber, its major non-synthetic competitor. Spandex is a generic name for the synthetic material invented by DuPont in 1959. Around the world, it is referred to as elastane. The most famous brand name associated with Spandex is Lycra® which is made by Invista (formerly part of DuPont).

Lycra® is an elastic, synthetic fiber that adds strength and “give” to fabrics. Always used in combination with one or more other fibers, as little as 2% Lycra® improves the comfort, freedom of movement, shape and wrinkle resistance. It has a long-term resistance to body acids.

Polyamide is a polymer that can occur both naturally (wool and silk) and be made artificially such as in the case of Nylons, Aramids, and sodium poly(aspartate). Polyamide provides an infinite amount of creative textile applications and offers all the qualities of comfort, aesthetics, durability and functionality while being flexible enough to meet the most varying requisites dictated by consumers. Our Polyamide provides UV protection from Purple and UV-B rays, dimensional stability, preventing shrinking. It has great memory, and will tend to reshape following movement. It is easy to care for and dries quickly.

Polyester is the most widely used man-made fiber in the world second only to cotton. Polyester exhibits advantages over natural fabrics including improved wrinkle resistance, strenght, and resistance to abrasion. Polyester fibers are often spun together with natural fibers such as cotton, to produce a cloth with blended properties.

Supplex® found in our fitness wear is typically 90% Polyamide and 10% Spandex® manufactured by Santa Constancia. Our Supplex® is known to be the best in Brazil! Supplex® is a very functional and high-tech product, developed originally by the Santa Constancia in the 1980s. It is engineered to provide the soft, supple touch of cotton with the strength, durability and performance advantages of nylon. It is flexible, lightweight and softer than standard nylon fabrics; and does not shrink, wrinkle, or fade. It resists abrasions, punctures, and tears; and is fast-drying, breathable and odor, wind, and water resistant. And best of all it is washable and does not require ironing!

Mesh found in our fitness wear is typically 78% Polyester and 22% Spandex® to provide better comfort. The cloth fabric is very versatile yet gentle and soft. It dries quickly, will not wrinkle and is easy to take care of.

Cotton is a soft natural fiber obtained from the seedpod of the cotton plant and is one of the major fashion fibers in the textile industry due to its versatility.

Denim is a well known basic cotton or twill fabric generally dyed blue with a white filling, sometimes mixed with Lycra® for comfort. Denim is versatile and durable.

Supplex® Alto Relevo found in our fitness wear is typically 90% Polyamide and 10% Spandex®. It is the same as our Supplex® except it has raised patterns such as floral images.

Satin found in our fitness wear is typically 97% Polyester and 3% Spandex®. Satin is a luxurious cloth highly recommended by tailors for its class and the beautiful way it hangs and falls. It is all about style! A satin-woven fabric tends to have a gorgeous luster due to the high number of "floats" on the fabric. Floats are "missed" interlacing, where the warp yarn lies on top of the weft yarn, or vice versa. The floats tend to make the fabric look glossier as well as give it that smooth feel.

Taffetá found in our fitness wear is typically 100% Polyamide and is manufactured by Santa Constancia. It is a plain weave, ultra light, lustrous medium weight fabric with a slightly ribbed appearance. Taffetá technology provides thermal comfort. It allows for quick transfer of heat and moisture. Taffetá rates well in terms of "pack ability" – being easy to press into a small space like a gym bag, and "easy-care" – being easy to wash and quick to dry. Aside from these great benefits, Taffetá does not need to be ironed letting you get to gym faster and looking great! It has the appearance of fashion with a subtle brilliance and a lightly "crushed" finish.

Ribana with Supplex® found in our fitness wear is typically 90% Polyamide and 10% Spandex® and is manufactured by Santa Constância. Ribana is characterized by having a slight ridge effect in one direction. This provides for a higher degree of stretching and elasticity. This way, the fabric molds to and accompanies the movements of the body. The addition of Supplex® provides still more advantages, such as thermal comfort, ideal in the practice of sports. It is also quick to dry making it ideal for workouts.

Radiant Lycra® found in our fitness wear is typically 84% Polyamide and 16% Spandex®. Similar to other Lycra®, it offers added comfort, fit, shape retention, durability and freedom of movement. This is achieved by the unique properties of its fiber, which can be stretched up to seven times its initial length before springing back to the original position once tension is released. Radiant Lycra® is characterized by its luxurious sheen making it look great on any form.

It is soft to the touch, visually fashionable and characterized as “easy-care." It washes easy, dries quick, and does not require ironing allowing you more time in the gym!
