Naia Fashion
Comfort: Fabrics made with Naia are light and cool against the skin as well as hypoallergenic. Inherent moisture management allows the fabric to stay cool and dry twice as fast as nylon. Naia has excellent dry rates (3 mL/hr) and can wick moisture away from the skin up to 7 times better than polyester.

Ease of Care: Naia has adaptable qualities that allow it to fit easily into most lifestyles, as it can be laundered at home, allows for easy stain removal (in fact, Naia releases stains from red lipstick and foundation makeup twice as effectively as polyester and nylon), has excellent wrinkle recovery, reduces odor twice as well as polyester, and does not pill easily. Naia fabrics don’t require dry cleaning and end consumers can wash Naia fabrics without fear of shrinkage or stretching.

Luxury: Fabrics made with Naia can have a high luster, shine, and drape. If the garment style demands it, Naia can also have a subtle matte finish instead. Fabrics made with Naia can be easily printed. Naia is 1.5x more lustrous than nylon.
Trends: Iconic intimate apparel trendsetter Jos Berry and print designer Ellen Haeser used Naia for its European introduction at Interfilere Paris earlier this year.
