Burlington Launches Techno-Natural Fabrics

Synatural, a new family of techno-natural fabrics, has been introduced by Burlington PerformanceWear (BPW), a division of Burlington Industries, Greensboro, N.C. BPW uses DuPonts Micromattique natural matte luster polyester yarn in the new fabrics to combine natural fluidity and drape with easy care and performance. Micromattique delivers cotton-like aesthetics in synthetic fabrics.With Micromattique, we have been able to combine the superior performance of polyester with a soft, natural hand, said Tonya Farrow, apparel segment manager for Micromattique.Garments made with Synatural fabrics are colorfast, and BPW sees the fabrics as a replacement for casual 100-percent cotton pants.Garments made with Synatural fabrics will be more suitable for todays more dressed-up casual styles, given their ability to maintain their color and shape, said Lou DLando, executive vice president, apparel fabrics, BPW.The Synatural fabrics will utilize Nano-Dry technology (See Quality Fabric Of The Month, ATI, March 2001) to provide additional comfort and hydrophilic performance properties such as breathability, permanent wickability and quick-drying capability.
