TRUTH  Direction File Download

Instinctively organic in inspiration, we need to pull from the pool of both natural and synthetic yarns in creating the desired natural hand feel but we must take it to a new level. An eco story features with recycled synthetics and the inclusion of creora® eco-soft, but it is the touch combined with an almost artificial approach to natural nuances that can be found as gray and neutral tones go to the wayside and bright and vibrant natural tones shine through.

The inclusion of creora® Color+ delivers a wide range of functionality from soft comfort stretch through to powerful core stability, from base layers to outer layers in just the right enhanced tones. Conveying a smooth, calm and truthful aspect for non impact sports, TRUTH continues the interest in wellbeing and healthwear, confirming the need for a bolder and brighter offering.
