The LYCRA Company


  • LYCRA® FitSense™ technology This patented water-based dispersion technology features the same molecule as LYCRA® fiber, but in liquid form. This revolutionary innovation is screen printed onto fabric containing LYCRA® fiber to provide lightweight, targeted support exactly where it is needed most. This solution offers unlimited design possibilities for brands and retailers and may also help streamline garment manufacturing by eliminating sewn-in panels and extra seams.
  • LYCRA® 962L fiber This patent-pending new polymer is engineered to deliver a customized fit experience by offering greater shape tolerance for a range of body types within a size. This exciting innovation is the only global solution that directly addresses major consumer needs around fit, which can help brands reduce returns, increase consumer satisfaction, and build brand loyalty.
  • LYCRA® EcoMade fiber The LYCRA Company is also featuring its first branded elastane that is made with pre-consumer recycled materials at ISPO. LYCRA® EcoMade fiber offers the same performance as the original LYCRA® fiber but is made partly with fiber waste collected at the company’s manufacturing sites, which is blended with virgin polymer at specific concentrations. This sustainable solution reduces waste and puts it back into production.

ISPO attendees can also learn about Planet Agenda, The LYCRA Company’s commitment to building a more sustainable future. The platform has been created to provide insights, technologies, products, and processes that can help customers reduce waste, save energy, extend garment wear life and more. Planet Agenda is built around three interdependent pillars: product sustainability, manufacturing excellence, and corporate responsibility.
