Discover our fabrics for the Outdoors
This is just a selection of our most popular fabrics. If you’d like more information or a personal assessment of your needs, please do get in touch with us.
We are experts in manufacturing elastics because this was what we first started to make. Elastics can be grouped into two main categories.
Simple elastics (Plain Stretch Woven). These kinds of elastics are very comfortable and perform well when stretched. We have different kinds of elastics depending on the direction of their elasticity:
- Mono-elastics (Mono-stretch): These garments stretch in one direction. Depending on a garment’s ergonomics, the elasticity is either longitudinal or transversal.
- Bi-elastics (Bi-stretch): These garments stretch in both directions. This means the garments are very comfortable for the wearer.
Double-Weave Elastics: These are dual weave fabrics featuring a blend of different textures with an inner loop. These are used for high-performance garments and offer the wearer maximum comfort levels. Likewise, these can stretch either in one or several directions.
And, depending on the kind of fibers used in the elastics, they can provide properties such as moisture wicking, excellent thermal insulation, resistance to cuts and wear, and electrical shock proofing, among others. Some of our most popular fabrics are the Ripstop fabrics that incorporate high-resistance weave that prevents any cuts or tears from spreading. This kind of fabric is idea for mountaineering clothes and garments that must be both light and very resistant.
Many of the products in our range have been designed to be used in reinforcements or in areas of high wear and tear.
In these fabrics we use yarns such as Cordura®, Kevlar®, Dyneema® among others. These yarns are very resistant to cuts, abrasion and scuffs. And have high-grip and anti-slip properties.
We manufacture fabrics with varying weights and compositions, designed to be used in a variety of different sports.
The main factors we take into account when creating these garments are:
- Temperature and moisture control Fabrics for both hot and extremely cold temperatures. Using quick-dry yarns that aid in moisture wicking and provide optimal thermal insulation.
- High-resistance materials We create items that are very resistant to scuffing and pilling using dyes that are colour fast when washed.
- UV Protection All our shirts have a minimum UPF factor that guarantees total protection against ultraviolet light.
These are our most innovative products. In these fabrics, not only do we achieve the same properties as our other fabrics, but we also seek to reduce our imprint on the planet throughout the entire production process.
Some of these fabrics originate from plastic that is recycled from industrial waste or recovered from fishing nets that pollute oceans. We also reduce the usage of water and C02 emissions during the manufacturing process.
Fabrics that protect tomorrow, today.
We manufacture fabrics with the highest possible levels of resistance. These rigid fabrics have multiple uses. Such versatility makes them perfect for the most extreme situations. Using yarns as strong as Kevlar®, Dyneema® Cordura® means our products have the qualities needed to be able to meet almost all needs.
Today the concept softshell is used to describe a composition of different fabrics, with or without a membrane. Our line varies according to the kind of membrane used:
- Semi-breathablemembranes: These can be used, for example, for a windproof membrane, giving it externalwater repellency, or over glued spots, making the material lighter and more malleable.
- Fully breathable membranes. These are the top of the range of oursoftshells. Their structure means they are very breathable whilst also being very waterproof capable of withstanding high water column pressures.
This is just a small sample of our laminates. Thanks to our technology we are able to laminate any fabric in the IBQ catalogue with difference membranes, fleece, tulle, etc. Tell us what you need and we will make it happen.
