Naveena Denim Mills adopted LYCRA® fiber and LYCRA® T400® fiber for their latest WRAPTECH 2.0 fabric collection to provide a fusion of stretch, comfort, and durability. A new tri-core technology fabric developed by Pakistan-based denim mill Naveena Denim Mills features both LYCRA® fiber and LYCRA® T400® fiber to fuse the comfort of super-stretch denim, the look of rigid denim, and the performance benefits of both.
“We’re describing WRAPTECH 2.0 as a ‘future-fit’ fabric,” said Aydan Tüzün, executive director of global sales and marketing, Naveena Denim Mills. “The fabrics address five key attributes: comfort, innovation, strength, versatility, and sustainability.”
WRAPTECH 2.0 combines the high stretch of LYCRA® fiber with the exceptional recovery and low shrinkage of LYCRA® T400® fiber. LYCRA® T400® fiber is made from two different polymers that, when exposed to heat, shrink to a different degree and produce a smooth, helical crimp for durable stretch and shape retention. While high-stretch fabrics provide great elasticity, wear over time can lead to lost recovery power. LYCRA® T400® fiber offers the needed muscle to pull the fabric back, providing excellent recovery even in hyper-stretch fabrics. And so garments made with WRAPTECH 2.0 maintain their shape longer with less sagging/bagging, they can require less home laundry, meaning less water, less energy, and less time.
“LYCRA® T400® fiber in special fabrics like WRAPTECH 2.0 will help garments keep their shape throughout the day,” said Silvia Toledo, senior strategic account manager, The LYCRA Company.
