Fabrics from tradition to innovation

Fabrics are the main material used to manufactures clothing. They have undergone a process of innovation along the year and now we can use fabrics to build our clothes that have specific performance features according to the use that we need to make of it. For example we can build waterproof jackets by using GoreTex and Nylon fabric or making running t-shorts that dry super rapidly to make you feel always dry also when you are practicing sport. 

Beside the innovative part of fabrics, the traditional cotton and wool fabric have evolved preserving their traditional look thus creating performance clothing also for more classical line of clothing. Let’s just think of Zegna performance wool.

On the other side the classical patterns have been revisited and reused in new context. Let’s just think of the Intimissimi Glen check used for underwear and homewear.
