Sometimes all you want is to design a stunning, comfortable shirt. A shirt with soft hand feel, moisture-absorbent and which dries quickly. In that case you should consider of our COOLMAX® and TENCEL® fabric collection. Below you will read all about the advantages of those fabrics.



TENCEL® fabrics

TENCEL® is a unique natural fibre made of wood cellulose. The fibres are produced in a sustainable and environmental friendly way.

TENCEL® offers many of the same characteristics as COOLMAX® fabric. Both fibres are moisture-wicking and exceptionally comfortable to wear. The soft structure of the fabric creates a very silky fabric which is exceptionally comfortable to wear.

TENCEL® is not susceptible to bacteria because it is extremely moisture-absorbent. This prevents irritation. Perfect for those with sensitive skinsTENCEL® fibres are ideal for combining with cotton fibre to produce an attractive and fine fabric.


To sum up, Tencil fabrics are: more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk, cooler than linen and extremely easy to iron. TENCEL® is the lyocell fiber from the house of Lenzing.

COOLMAX® fabrics

COOLMAX® is a polyester fibre with a unique structure. Because the fibres surface are larger than regular fibres, the fabric offers excellent breathability. The advantage is that the fabric offers optimal effectiveness in drawing moisture away from the skin.

COOLMAX® fabrics can be washed in the washing machine, but take care with the use of fabric conditioner, chlorine and bleaching agents. The fabric is quick drying, so a drier is hardly necessary. Handy when travelling!

The benefit of using COOLMAX® fabrics for shirts is the comfort it offers. The fabrics are cooling and have a soft hand feel. You will adore the natural feel and added touch of performance.


To sum up, COOLMAX® fabrics are: comfortable while still looking fashionable, soft, lightweight and breathable.COOLMAX® is a trademark of INVISTA.
