With their good insulating properties and completely new, fresh looks, 4D-KNIT articles expand the design scope of double raschel technology for the fashion and outdoor sectors.

The reason for this is the inclusion of the insulating fibers between the faces of the 3D textile. The results of a study by Hohenstein Laboratories in Bönnigheim demonstrate a reduction in fiber release of up to 10 times in gravimetric measurements.
