It is all about the touch as powdery and ceramic aspects appeal in stretch knits and wovens. Compact surfaces hold a cryptic clue through the use of prints and contrasting yarns as optical effects in geometric formation feature in both knits and wovens. Interesting surface effects catch the eye as blistered knits and plissé textures feature creating a 3D effervescent effect.

Both compact and irregular volume of raised surfaces feature appeal to be touched, which is where super soft hands are essential. Plain or crinkled, stretch single circular knit and warp knit jersey delivery fit and flare in lightweight qualities. Calvary twill and plain warp knits mimic the woven sector for bottom weights, relying on a dusty touch finish through to a natural and subtle glazed appearance. Stretch pile fabrics from velveteen through to textural jacquards with raised relief that dances across surfaces.
