I am looking for athletic fabric like Adidas’ ClimaLite or UnderArmour’s fast drying fabric. I am new to this and wonder if you could offer any insight how to find a high quality, fast wicking fabric for a new clothing line. Thanks so much.
Peggy: The fabrics you are seeking, in all likelihood, are being made especially for these companies, and is NOT available to purchase, without placing a contract.
I suggest you plan on attending some of the wholesale trade shows, coming up in the next few months.
In New York, at the end of this month is the Material World Show (www.material-world.com), at the Jacob Javits Center.
In October is the Los Angeles International Fabric show ( www.californiamarketcenter.com), Oct 15-17.
Plan on attending and spending time with the companies that can custom make these fabrics for you.
