The best suited for the uses shown !
Each has its own strengths, because every professional activity is specific and requires custom made clothing! Flexibility, durability, insulation! Our fabric range matches the very individual expectations of every worker.
On the cutting edge of innovation : Leader in our market, we develop highly technical exclusive fabrics that are precursors when it comes to performance, safety and comfort. New techniques have been implemented for the good of users and the environment!

Fabric composition: We “jealously” guard the secrets of our fabrics! Some have been used exclusively by Guy Cotten for decades: Nylpeche fabric, Cap-Coz fabric, etc.

All our fabrics have been chosen because they provide real weather protection, while remaining comfortable inside. Associated with “good fabrics”, we take great care and are pragmatic in the making of our garments, which is what makes them reliable no matter what the weather is like!

1/ Central part in 3 layers:
• 2 layers are connected
• An “intelligent” non-porous molecular membrane: When body temperature rises, the membrane’s intermolecular space increases, helping moisture escape faster. Since it is not made of ordinary pores, it remains wind and waterproof. This is even the case when it is stretched considerably and subjected to the toughest wear.
• A microporous coating increases its resistance to wind and water even further.
2/ Very hard wearing outer fabric standing up to all sorts of hostile outdoor conditions (abrasion, tearing, etc.), protected with a high-performing water repellent and anti-stain treatment.
3/ Bonded interior lining. This saves the addition of an extra lining, making it high-performing, comfortable and long-lasting.
