Artica is a technical fabric, based on researches on the fur of the polar bear. The brushed fabric is made up of hundreds of hollow microfilaments, that work like an insulation chamber between the skin and the outside. The specific structure of the Artica – composed of 57% polyamide, 28% polyester and 15% elastane – allows natural evaporation and good moisture management. The reaction of the polyamide and polyester to the process of dyeing with different colouring agents allows for two-toned versions of the fabric. Anti-pilling, anti-bacterial and anti-odour, Artica is durable and resistant to heavy use and washing. The weight is 240 g/m². Artica is mostly used for (sports) clothing, but the fabric is also suitable for laminating.
