Increasingly, the boundaries between outdoor, leisure and sports fashion are becoming blurred.
New trends in sports such as Nordic walking, trekking, golf and snowboarding inspire lifestyle collections. High-tech fibers and functional apparel offer new momentum to the market. Waterproof, wind resistant and breathable materials are here to stay. New functions are constantly being added to the mix: from stain protection to moisture movement to anti-odor effects.
The challenges for technical textiles in the sport arena are no less demanding than those faced by sportsmen themselves. Whether for gymnastics, soccer, baseball, mountain climbing or skiing, modern sportswear has to support athletes in their goals.
In doing so, technical textiles meet the ever increasing requirements of designers and manufacturers of sports outfits. Functionally, they need to be able to manage the exchange of moisture and air, while providing an antimicrobial finish. Ski jackets must be completely water repellent to protect the user’s health. At the same time, sportswear must look good and has to reflect the lifestyle and spirit of each and every sport world.
