Hyosung and Soorty Link Up for 4-Way Stretch Denim

Missed Sourcing Journal’s Virtual Sourcing Summit? It's not too late to view all keynotes and panels from the two days. Watch on demand now.

Hyosung, the largest global spandex producer with the Creora brand, has partnered with Pakistan-based denim mill Soorty to introduce an athleisure-inspired collection featuring Creora Fit2, a new proprietary fabrication designed to offer superior comfort, fit and 4-way stretch.

The technology was developed to meet consumer demand for denim with second skin fit and 360-degree comfort. It capitalizes on Creora spandex 4-way stretch development that provides reduced shrinkage and better recovery. In bi-stretch denim, Creora Fit2 technology offers more comfortable wear and a perfect silhouette.

The technology will launch at Denim by PV in Barcelona, Spain Nov. 18-19. Attendees can view the fabrication in Soorty’s S/S 2017 collection, Zumba, which Soorty Head of R&D Levent Korkmzer said is a nod to the athleisure movement in denim.

“Creora Fit2 technology has allowed us to create a new collection of 4-way stretch denim with higher stretch but without the typical warp shrinkage and instability issues,” Korkmzer said. “The new collection is more affordable than previous 4-way stretch technology and therefore, more marketable.”
