These 2-layer fabrics are used for the outer layer of the functional garment system. They are woven and either laminated or coated. They can be elastic and must be breathable and waterproof for use in jackets and pants. The term “Lightweight” applies if the construction is under 100g/sqm.

Among all the functionality you will find many sustainable fabrics with cradle-to-cradle laminates made from recycled and recyclable materials. The fabrics used for the outer layers are functional, waterproof, and breathable; even bio-based synthetic fibres, e.g., made from ricinus beans. Great interest is assigned to the new laminates which supplement the hydrophilic solutions. Also, a green function can be claimed in good conscience since the spun mass-dyed fibres (dope-dyed) save water and energy.

This category promises a wide range of possibilities. The impressions run from technical to refined. You can also find hybrid constructions with a brand new facing laminate, where the membrane is on the outside to ensure a superior pearling effect. The fillable tubular items are another new option in which the upper fabric is laminated after the chambers form to create a really clean finish.
