Chakara

Their most technical fabric. Great compression and shape retention, soft and touchable, superb moisture management, full support and unprecedented durability, wash after wash. (88% Supplex*, 12% Lycra)

*INVISTA SUPPLEX® fabric offers consumers the feel of cotton with the benefits of advanced fiber technology. Cotton’s natural texture and aesthetics make it the fabric of choice in many garment categories. Garments made with cotton tend to crease and shrink easily, and they often fade in color. INVISTA scientists wanted to give consumers the benefits of cotton, without the pitfalls. They did so by developing SUPPLEX® fabrics—a family that combines the traditional appeal of cotton with the performance benefits of modern fiber technology. SUPPLEX® fabrics are breathable, hold their shape, dry faster than cotton and retain their color.
