The fabric is pre-shrunk before any treatments. As a result, the shrinkage level drops down to 5-6% instead of 18-20%. This creates fantastic benefits both for the manufacturer and the designer. The dramatic decrease in shrinkage ensures consistency throughout different laundry processes and differentiates the product performance among its counterparts. That means consistency, less patterns, no size variances… It also helps manufacturers to better manage their unwashed garment inventory control; easily and confidently switching the wash formula with no need of extra production of rigid garments.
The next problem… garments made with high elasticity stretch fabrics usually have a typical problem; the unsightly puckering. Especially at waistband, pockets and outseam.
Elastech technology also solves the puckering problem. Elastech jeans look flawless on the body and classy when they are hung in stores.
Last but not least, the technology introduces superior wear performance with improved growth values; helping the garment keeping its shape and avoiding bagging. It is applicable to all elasticity levels of stretch constructions.
Elastech saves money and time. Less complaint, less returns, better inventory control. Premium garments, flawless looks. Çalık Denim paid attention to customer feedbacks, took their complaints seriously and eventually had to change the rules of the game.
