Schoeller Textil AG has made a variety of durable apparel for watersports used by ocean athletes and river runners.
Ocean athletes choose schoeller-made water-apparel for comfort because of its four-way stretch, water and dirt repelling functions, and durability, the company said in a statement.
The naturally quick-drying fabrics have a high level of comfort, and the addition of NanoSphere helps water shed easily. Schoeller textiles have been tested extensively for durability in the mountains and streets and now are finding a new application in the tough worlds of surfing and yachting.
