What is Supplex? – Our Social Fabric

What is Supplex?

At Our Social Fabric, we’re passionate about offering the best in sustainable and high-performance fabrics. One of our standout fabrics, and team favourites, is Supplex, a fabric that combines the traditional comfort of cotton with the innovative durability and versatility of modern synthetics. But what exactly is Supplex, and why should you consider it for your next project?

The Science Behind Supplex

Supplex is a type of nylon fabric developed by Invista, designed to offer the look and feel of cotton while providing advanced benefits. It’s made from finer multiple filaments, which makes it softer and more flexible. Unlike standard nylon, Supplex fibers are less likely to pill and retain their shape and softness after repeated washing and wear.

Key Benefits of Supplex

  1. Softness and Comfort: Supplex feels like cotton, offering a natural, soft touch that is gentle on the skin. It's perfect for clothing that needs to be comfortable and breathable.

  2. Durability: This fabric is exceptionally durable, resisting abrasions and tears better than traditional cotton. It maintains its strength and appearance even after extensive use.

  3. Moisture-Wicking: Supplex fabric is moisture-wicking, making it an excellent choice for activewear. It helps keep you dry and comfortable during workouts by drawing sweat away from your body.

  4. Quick Drying: One of the standout features of Supplex is its quick-drying properties. This makes it ideal for sportswear, swimwear, and travel clothing.

  5. Fade-Resistant: Supplex retains its color and doesn’t fade as easily as cotton, even after multiple washes and exposure to sunlight.

  6. Wrinkle-Resistant: It resists wrinkling, so your garments look fresh and polished with minimal effort.

Applications of Supplex

Supplex is incredibly versatile and is used in a variety of applications, from activewear and athleisure to outdoor gear and everyday clothing. Whether you’re creating stylish workout gear or durable everyday clothes, Supplex is a fantastic choice that offers the best of both worlds: the comfort of cotton and the benefits of advanced fabric technology.
