Natural to touch, HONESTY highlights the importance of wool, cashmere, silk and cotton fibers in adding a deluxe feel when teamed with performance nylon and creora® spandex/elastane. Color comes into play in bold and rich tones, through to organically inspired melange effects for detail.

Only a small percentage of noble natural fibers is required, to take hybrid blends to a new premium level, through sensational touch. With the focus on solids, do consider taking this up a level through printed finishes in updating classics. Consider bringing in shaping technology for a smoothing effect, but this is discreet. What is key about this direction is the sensational touch, deluxe approach and the consumer-loving natural touch, working well for both the hosiery and socks market for men and women.
