Always on the look out for new opportunities and regeneration, denim has found a perfect place to develop and ingratiate itself as a key product in the urban activewear sector. By taking a closer look at the high performance ingredients, denim reinvents in a new guise as a high functioning alternative. With the´athleisure´mood in full swing, the denim industry won´t lose out to the generic legging, instead it is facing the threat full on and will redefine the fabric consumers love to fit the mood.

Active denim is about multi blends and mimicry. It is about adding value and function to the consumer as moisture management, thermal and cool touch denim all feature with the comfort and super stretch delivered by creora® spandex/elastane. Emphasis also needs to be placed on weaving and knitting techniques, as knits mimic wovens and vice versa.
