MATERIALS

Material/Fiber Mark Characteristics
NATURAL FIBRES  
BAMBUS   Usually natural fibres of bamboo and eco cotton mixture;
offers a pleasantly cool sensation.
COTTON CO/BW  Natural fibre of plant origin – very absorbent material. Can be
ironed at high temperature. Can be processed to obtain lustrous
quality, wrinkle-resistance, and minimise shrinking.
SILK SE Natural material of luxurious appearance, pleasant to skin. Slightly
more demanding care required.
FLAX LI Very absorbent material with natural shine. Can be washed and
ironed at high temperatures.
   
FIBRES OF NATURAL ORIGIN  
VISCOSE VI Regenerated cellulose fibre. Material is pleasant to touch and
pleasant to wear due to airy sensation.
MODAL CMD Regenerated cellulose fibre with high specific firmness and
elasticity in wet conditions. Material is pleasant to touch, softer
than viscose and nice to wear due to airy sensation.
ACETATE   Modified cellulose. Material of noble appearance, with volume and
nicely falling, wrinkles slightly. Easy maintenance at low
temperatures.
WOLL WO Belongs among natural protein fibre of animal origin – sheep hair
of various origins. It is very hygroscopic – it can take in as much as
40 % of moisture. Wool is among the lightest natural fibres and is
very flexible. It's a material with the highest absorption rate (up to
33% without feeling it's wet); it is a good heat isolator (protects
from cold and heat) and does not wrinkle much: it demands
attentive care – manual washing at low temperatures, gentle
processing and special washing agents.
   
MODERN FIBRES
POLYAMIDE PA, PA6, PA66 Synthetic fibre, solid and sturdy, does not wrinkle. Easy
maintenance at low temperatures.
POLYESTER PES Synthetic fibre, similar either to wool, silk or cotton. Solid and
sturdy, neither wrinkles nor shrinks. Easy to maintain, and dries
quickly.
ELASTAN EL Material with high elasticity and stretching characteristics, used in
mixtures with other fibres for tight-fitting garments.
POLYURETANE PUR Belongs among chemical fibres from synthetic polymers.
Polyurethane is composed from a chain of organic units,
connected with urethane links. Formulations of polyurethane
represent a very wide spectrum of rigidity and thickness.
Polyurethane is widely used for the creation of various adjustable
foams, linings, rigid foams, etc.
METALLIC THREADS  ME Metallic threads mainly appear with woven fabric and embroidery.
Through time, their use of materials and process of thread
manufacturing has changed significantly – today, the most
commonly used metallic threads are the aluminium ones.
