These technical endeavors encompass principles of protection, comfort and easy-care materials with features such as antibacterial, quick drying, cool touch and soft cotton to provide consumers with new experiences through a combination of technology, comfort and fashion.

With Semir’s Cooling fabrics, high-tech sub-micron powder is incorporated into the fiber, creating a natural cooling effect. A light, breathable running shoe made from recycled mesh, Balabala’s ‘wind feel shoe’ offers exceptional breathability.
