How StayFleece™ helped
one of Japan’s largest fashion retailers
cut cost.

Fleece has always been popular for its comfort and warmth, and unfortunately has always shrunk after a wash. For retailers who are looking to move larger quantities of fleece products, shrinkage presents a real business problem.

One of the solutions presented by Open Innovation Lab was to integrate polyester yarns into a fleece fabric technology which would virtually eliminate shrinkage, but for the retailer, visible polyester yarns presented a brand quality issue.

Pailung solved this problem by developing a machine that could not only integrate polyester yarns, but hide them as well, giving the finished fabric technology a higher quality appearance and feel.
