Armalith® Provides Alternative To Leather

France-based Esquad® has launched a line of raw-denim jeans that feature Armalith®, a composite fabric produced from a fiber — originally developed for nontextile applications — that has been reworked, retreated and combined with a cotton thread, and then is woven using a special process. The jeans are targeted to motorcycling enthusiasts.

According to Esquad, Armalith is at least as strong, if not stronger than, leather, while it offers the look, pliability and breathability of denim. The company reports the breaking limit of a trouser-leg made with Armalith is greater than 10 tons.

The four designs in the new jeans line provide such safety features as a heat shield, hip reinforcement, impact reinforcement and ventilation, among others.
