Modal Fabric: A Luxurious and Sustainable Choice

  • 2 min read

What is Modal Fabric?

Modal fabric is a revolutionary bio-based textile derived from the cellulose of beech tree pulp. Known for its luxurious feel and eco-friendly nature, Modal has become a popular choice in the fashion industry, especially for intimate wear, pajamas, and everyday clothing like our T-shirts.

Eco-Friendly and Sustainable

One of the key advantages of Modal fabric is its minimal environmental impact. Unlike traditional cotton, beech trees require significantly less water to grow, making Modal a more sustainable alternative. The production process of Modal utilizes approximately 10-20 times less water, contributing to a more eco-conscious and responsible choice in fabric.

Extremely Comfortable

Modal fabric is renowned for its exceptional softness and smooth texture, providing unparalleled comfort. This breathable material absorbs 50% more moisture than cotton, ensuring that our T-shirts remain dry and comfortable even during extended wear. Say goodbye to that sweaty or sticky feeling – Modal fabric keeps you feeling fresh all day.

Structural Superiority

Modal fabric represents an evolution of viscose rayon, eliminating wasteful and harmful aspects of the production process. Consumers and manufacturers alike recognize Modal rayon as a structurally superior product to traditional viscose rayon. Its durability and flexibility make it an ideal choice for high-quality clothing, ensuring your T-shirts stand the test of time.

Practical Advantages

  • Shape Retention: Unlike some fabrics that shrink or stretch when wet, Modal fabric retains its shape exceptionally well. This feature, combined with its 50% greater resistance to shrinkage compared to cotton, ensures that your T-shirts maintain their fit wash after wash.
  • Pilling Resistance: Thanks to its stronger fibers and lower surface friction, Modal fabric is less prone to pilling, providing a smoother and more polished appearance over time.
  • Machine Washable: Modal fabric can be conveniently washed and dried by machine, offering ease of care without compromising its integrity.

Micromodal: A Premium Variant

Micromodal, a finer form of Modal, is often used in underwear. Its light and airy texture, coupled with breathability and durability, make it an excellent choice for intimate wear. The silky feel of Micromodal ensures a comfortable and luxurious experience, making it a perfect addition to our T-shirt collection.

Wicking Properties with Alpaca Blend

Modal's moisture-absorbing properties complement the Alpaca blend in our T-shirts, working together to wick away and eliminate moisture. This unique combination ensures not only comfort but also practical functionality, making our T-shirts suitable for various activities and climates.

In conclusion, Modal fabric is more than just a textile – it's a commitment to comfort, sustainability, and quality. We're excited to introduce this exceptional fabric in our Base Layers and T-shirts, and we're confident you'll love the luxurious feel and practical advantages it brings to your wardrobe.
