Fitness Fox has great relationships from multiple fabric vendors from all over the world. We travel to many fabric shows across the US to source the best fabrics for our customers. Here is a list of some of the fabrics we use to make your awesome headbands:
BRAZILIAN SPANDEX: This is our highest quality spandex ever made. No joke! You'll feel the difference the second you touch it. Our Brazilian Spandex is a 4-way Stretch Quad-Flex Lycra®, 88% Nylon and 12% Spandex. It's also incredibly sweat-absorbent, moisture wicking, stays cool to the touch and durable with a 420 GSM (grams per square meter). The Brazilian Spandex protects against UVA and UVB Rays, and offers an SPF of 35. We wouldn't want your forehead getting burnt in the hot sun! Please see our "BRAZILIAN COLLECTION" for all of our options with this amazing fabric.
SPECTRUM PRO MATTE: We use Spectrum Pro Matte headbands in all of our SOLID headbands and some of our printed headbands. Spectrum Pro Matte is an indestructible fabric and made with Creora® HighClo™ Spandex yarn. Creora® HighClo™ Spandex provides the highest level of chlorine and salt resistance, (great for keeping those vibrant colors from fading in the wash!) It also holds the shape and fit, and of course has 4-way stretch. This line delivers some compression qualities, allowing for shaping the perfect fit for your headband and garments. It's makeup, 81% Nylon 19% Creora® HighClo™, with a 5.6 oz/square meter with a matte finish. This fabric also offers an SPF of 25, maximum sweat-absorbancey and moisture wicking.
QUAD-FLEX LYCRA®: Used for all of our PRINTED Headbands, and the base of our HOLOGRAM/FOIL Headbands. Like the Brazilian Spandex, the Quad-Flex Lycra® protects against UVA and UVB Rays, offers an SPF of 30 and very absorbent. It's made of 80% Nylon and 20% Spandex making it a very flexible 4-way stretch fabric. This fabric is very salt and chlorine resistant, so it locks in the bright and vibrant colors of your headband. Quad-Flex Lycra® is sweat absorbent, moisture wicking and cool to the touch. *Please note, hologram and foil headbands are awesome, however, the fabric does lose about 10-15% stretch when the hologram/foil is applied by the manufacturer. We try our best to compensate for this by making your headband 1/4 inch larger.
MOSAIC REFLECTIVE SPANDEX: Mosaic Reflective fabric has a bold fashionable look that reflects when a flash hits the fabric. This reflective spandex fabric is set to increase visibility and your safety in low lit areas. It is made up of 80% Nylon and 20% Spandex, with a weight of 280g/yard. It is a soft 4-way stretch material with reflective foil on top. Stay safe during your nighttime activities with the ultra-safe REFLECTIVE Headbands.
SIMPLICITY HEATHER: “Heather” refers to interwoven yarns of mixed colors producing flecks of an alternate color. We use Simplicity Heathers to make our most popular TURBAN TWIST Headbands. This fabric is 90% Polyester, 10% Spandex, a weight of 190 GSM and SPF of 40+. Simplicity Heather is also Anti-Bacterial, ultra sweat absorbent, and cool to the touch.
