Teijin Frontier unveils fast-drying, absorbent fabric for casualwear

Posted October 14, 2020


TOKYO – Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group's fibers and products converting company, announced an all-new high-absorption, quick-drying fabric inspired by the fine structure of diatomaceous earth used in bath mats.


Teijin Frontier will begin selling its new fabric for casual wear in spring/summer 2021 collections, targeting annual sales of 50,000 meters in fiscal 2020 and a tenfold increase to 500,000 meters in fiscal 2022.

- Structure

While conventional polyester fabrics have a smooth woven structure made with uniform fibers, the new fabric has a fine uneven structure made with random fibers.

- Fabric Features

The new fabric offers excellent water absorption and diffusion for quick drying. It also achieves a natural-like appearance and is stretchable.

Due to increases in double-income and single-person households, demands are rising for products that help to minimize housework, such as washing clothes. Related to this trend is the increasing popularity of easy-care attire that dries quickly after washing. Furthermore, clothing with natural-like appearances and textures have come into vogue in recent years.
