Camel Active’s license partner Premium Bodywear AG, manufacturer of the Manstore and Olaf Benz brands, has an impressive new German-made fabric mix of cotton, polyamide and elastane in its spring/summer 2016 collection. The high-tech fabric was originally developed for technical purposes in the company’s own factory in Chemnitz, one of the last few underwear factories in Germany. “We’re very proud that Germany is still our manufacturing base, so we can truly say that this range of camel active underwear is made here”, comments Frank Markert, Chairman of Premium Bodywear AG.
The CA 29 “Function Fit” series is considered the underwear highlight of the season and has proved to be a marvellous everyday all-rounder – the combination of cotton, polyamide and elastane lends the pants and matching tops functionality and elasticity, whilst fast drying and superb wicking are made possible by the breathable fabric. The modular fabric is achieved via a special woven structure and two completely different filament systems, with polyamide filaments facing the inside of the garment and cotton filaments on the outside to absorb vapour, resulting in a comfortable high-performance fabric that feels pleasantly soft on the skin.
