Spring/Summer Fabric Insights

HydroMaxx

HYDROMAXX is a Bluesign certified, performance 2.5 waterproof / breathable membrane designed to keep water out while allowing moisture vapours to pass through. Water resistance is measured by the amount of water, in mm, which can be suspended above the fabric before water seeps through. HYDROMAXX has been tested to withstand 10,000 mm of water resistance and 10,000 g/m2/d.

Helishade

HELISHADE is a sun protective 100% recycled polyester, Bluesign certified fabric, and provides a sun protection rating of UPF50+. The fabric also provides moisture-wicking properties and elasticity ensuring superior comfort and fit.

Organic Cotton

GOTS certified, grown without the use of synthetic agricultural chemicals, organic cotton is just as beneficial for you as it is for the environment. Chemical free cotton is hypoallergic and helps reduce absorption of toxins through the skin, thus reducing health risks.

Coolmax

Moisture management is one of the key performance criteria in today’s apparel industry. Coolmax stands out with its ability to transport moisture away from the skin to the outer surface. It also provides comfort stretch, good color fastness and a high UV protection, while being extremely lightweight.

Jade

Unlike traditional cooling fabrics, ThermoCOOL is made from Jade stone powder, able to cool down the surface temperature by about 1-2 degree Celsius. CTR has incorporated ThermoCOOL into its collection to give you a more cool, dry, protective product. Since jade stone has positive electrons and is bacteria negative, it is virtually impossible for bacteria to grow on the fabric.
