Because fabrics made with drirelease technology are not treated with chemicals of any kind, performance is permanent. It will not “wash out” over time.
The great thing about drirelease fabrics is the patented combination of synthetic hydrophobic fibers and natural hydrophilic fibers that allow the fabric to manage moisture naturally, dramatically improving how sweat is wicked from the skin and released into the air. In our case we have chosen a blend of 85% performance polyester and 15% cotton. This not only wicks sweat really quickly but also dries four times faster than cotton.
A GREENER CHOICE
From 2019 we switched fully to eco-drirelease, made from organic cotton and 100% recycled polyester. Choosing organic cotton helps reduce pesticide and herbicide use.
The fabric industry alone produces over 60 trillion tones of polyester a year, and mills are increasingly waking up to the need to reduce this through recycling. If you take advantage of our repair service for your old garments you can further help reduce production.
COMFORT MEETS STYLE
The mix of fibers and the way our drirelease is woven make for a super soft, cotton like feel. To further avoid the risk of chafing we minimize the use of panels in the construction of our tops and use a flat over lock stitch on all internal seams.
We use a piqué construction on all our tops. Piqué is a particular way of weaving, developed originally in the Lancashire cotton industry, which gives our tops a pleasing old school look. It has functional benefits too as piqué cloth is naturally well ventilated and holds up well wash after wash.
Our drirelease tops looks sharp and feel wonderful to wear, but without compromising on technical performance.
