Choosing the wrong fabric can be a costly mistake that wastes time and money.
Which is why fabric selection is critical when creating performance active wear, but most brands don’t have in-house fabric scientists to help find the best fabric for a garment’s end use.
How do you know a fabric’s performance benefits will survive the cut and sew and garment finishing process? How can you be sure the fabric you pick will perform as you think it will?
When brands choose LYCRA® SPORT PCE™ certified fabrics you know exactly how a fabric will perform because it has been rigorously tested in LYCRA® SPORT labs. The patented PCE™ index takes the guesswork out of fabric selection and enables you to make an informed decision. Each fabric comes with an easy to understand report that measures on an 1-10 scale a fabric’s:
This makes fabric selection faster and easier than ever before! Think about all the time, energy and money you can direct elsewhere! The PCE™ index was developed with brands in mind because we understand that time to market is crucial in a highly competitive category. Since relaunching the LYCRA® SPORT technology platform in 2016, thousands of fabrics have been sent for testing, but only a few selections met our rigorous LYCRA® SPORT performance criteria.
