The benefits featured in the active and outdoor sectors continue to encroach on denim developments, as high performance denim qualities in multi blends feature. From sports performance through to urban protection, hybrid blends continue to deliver on the function front, enhanced by creora® spandex/elastane in delivering the comfort and fit. High tenacity yarns are becoming a popular option in delivering a robust finish to denim, while personal wellbeing is enhanced by moisture management and antibacterial synthetic yarns or through performance finishing.

A greater degree of flexlibility is achieved creora® Fit2 – for 360° stretch, perfect when finished with a performance layer such as a DWR finish, especially for urban cycling. On a personal temperature level look to hybrid blends that can create cool touch denim for the summer and warmth in the winter combined with the comfort factor and fit that creora® spandex/elastane brings to the market.

Denim in this direction is deceptive. It looks true, dense and dark with classic twill surfaces, but in fact it is intelligent denim at a new level, with a host of ingredients from performance yarns and finishes accelerating the function for a variety of end applications. Comfort stretch is crucial in this sector as is a comforting touch as classic twill and sateen constructions take on a more malleable and compact construction.
