Fabric

93% polyester , 7% elastane

Did you know?

Elastane: a synthetic, elastane is added in small quantities to fabrics to provide stretch and shape retention. It allows freedom of movement and delivers long lasting fit. Lycra is a premium branded version of elastane.

Velvet: this elegant fabric is made by adding additional threads during the weaving process which are then cut to create a pile with an extremely soft surface. All pile depths up to 3 mm are referred to as velvet.

Polyester: is something of a miracle fabric. A synthetic, it can be worn over and over without fading or losing its shape and is crease resistant. It works well in blends with natural fabrics such as cotton where it extends their life.
