Crystal Textile Group Launches Line Of Spacer Fabrics

NEW YORK, July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The Crystal Textile Group (formerly 'TheTricot Man') has launched a new line of spacer fabrics under the Spacer-Lite name for a wide variety of apparel, medical, industrial and technical end-uses. Spacer fabrics are made up of two outer textile substrates, which are joined together and kept apart by an insert of spacer yams. This design creates a ventilated layer of air, allowing heat and moisture to escape. The basic substrates, while limited, can be developed in various novelties. "Spacer-Lite is far softer than laminated fabrics used for the same purposes and retains its qualities after repeated launderings," said Richard Crystal, CEO of the vertically integrated, New York-based knit and fabric company. "By virtue of such qualities, this extremely versatile fabric is perfectly suited for such end uses as lingerie, bras, swimwear and active wear." Spacer-Lite also offers anti-microbial, anti-mildew, anti-static, flame retardant, absorptive, water repellent and abrasion resistance properties-- making it ideal for an array of medical, industrial and technical applications. "As a completely vertical organization, we have the ability to offer Spacer-Lite fabrics in a host of finishes and yarn combinations," Mr. Crystal added. For further information about the new Spacer-Lite fabrics, contact Richard Crystal, Crystal Textile Group, 1430 Broadway, New York, NY 10018, or(212) 575-5585.
