More materials

According to customers’ requirements

Different materials have different characteristics. Cotton for example is breathable, water-absorbing and warm. Once wet however, the material is heavy and can lead to chafing. Fitness fabrics should be chosen based on a fitness shirt’s requirements. Clearly defining the proportion of each material, helps factories to better understand your needs and achieve the required characteristics.

A key factor is the fabric’s weight. Material weight is communicated in grams per square meter GSM. Light fabrics range from 30 to 100 GSM, while fabrics above 250 GSM are considered heavy for shirts. Cotton t-shirts for example range from light shirts with 150 GSM to heavy shirts with 250 GSM.

Top fitness brands have years of experience as well as top notch fashion designers and material researchers to develop high end sports shirts, that meets the demand of today’s fitness experts. When working with our partner-factories, these multinational fitness brands give very clear instructions on the designs, fabric combinations, construction and packaging.
