Lightweight Shirting Fabric

Global producer and sourcing expert of fabrics, Esmetex recently announced its first collection of casual and dress shirt fabrics that combines the properties of SORBTEK® and REPREVE®.

The fabric, which makes use of the cooling and moisture wicking properties of SORBTEK®, and the recycled benefits of REPREVE®, is the first of its kind fabric, as no other company has used both the products in a shirting fabric. “REPREVE with SORBTEK technology brings unparalleled benefits that are new to the casual and dress shirt market. Consumers love the benefits of active wear, but traditionally haven’t been able to get those same benefits in their everyday casual and dress shirts. Fabrics made with REPREVE and SORBTEK offer that cool, dry feeling we desire in athletic clothes; with the added benefit of keeping plastic bottles out of landfills,” said Victor Chao, Chief Marketing and Product Development Officer, Esmetex.

The textile manufacturer would be launching two yarn dyed fabric blends, one with 54 per cent cotton and 46 per cent REPREVE, and the other 70 per cent cotton and 30 per cent REPREVE. Both the fabrics would weigh around 4.5 ounces per square yard, and will be 57 inches wide.

“Our work with Esmetex resulted in the combination of our SORBTEK and REPREVE technologies in shirting fabrics for a new group of consumers who are seeking performance outside the gym,” expressed Jay Hertwig, Vice President of Global Branding for Unifi Inc., to which the SORBTEK® and REPREVE® belong.
