It may be the mind that fuels the determination in sports, but it is the body that is the performance tool. Taking this into consideration, Generate is inspired by our very makeup, the intricacy of anatomical structures to the fascination of cells. Body embracing fabrics are fundamental in enhancing the wearers' performance as well as offering protection from injury. High compression knits feature in this sector benefitting from creora® Power Fit for excellent shaping and compression, with surfaces in both circular and warp knits taking on a semi dull to satin finish through the inclusion of synthetics.

While compact fabrics embrace the body there is also a demand for detail, offered through innovative jacquard structures, digital prints, punch out details through to lasering. Massaging textured warp knits feature with 3D surface effects through to the inclusion of FIR yarns for increasing the circulation. Clean cut is a key component to this sector, but it is the performance level that fabrics can offer to compliment the structures including quick dry, moisture management, UV protection and cool touch.
