Fabrics - Luxurious & Down to Earth

SteelCore’s Exclusive Organic Cotton Blend

We wanted to create a fabric that is ideal for you and the planet, so we worked with a textile chemist to create our special recipe of organic ringspun cotton and spandex, creating a superior quality organic cotton that works equally well for active and lifestyle clothing.  SteelCore pays attention to the ‘not so small’ details like opacity, construction and fit. Our organic blend comes in three weights and all are 4-way stretch. We knit our fabric in mills located in the USA (yes they do still exist and we want to keep them here) and of course all our design and production also happens here.

Micro Modal

Modal is a second generation regenerated cellulosic fiber and a variation of rayon. Lenzing Modal® is made from sustainably harvested beech trees in PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification schemes) certified European forests. PEFC is the world’s largest forest certification organization. Modal fibers with a high wet modulus were originally developed in Japan in 1951. Lenzing started selling modal fibers in 1964. In 1977, Lenzing started using an environmentally friendly bleaching method for pulp for their cellulosic fibers.

Rayon from Bamboo

Rayon is a regenerated cellulose fiber, meaning that a natural raw material is converted through a chemical process into a fiber that falls into a category between naturals and synthetics. The source of cellulose can be wood, paper, cotton fiber or, in this case, bamboo ... a natural plant fiber that regenerates faster than the other plant fibers listed.

Upcycle

When manufacturers (think the premier active wear line with an upsidedown U logo) change fabrics or finish their run on bolts of fabric, remaining quantities of fabric are eventually discarded to local landfills.  SteelCore, being a small company concerned about environmental issues, decided we would upcycle those leftover fabrics, before they were sent for discard.  This practice continues our commitment to eco friendly manufacturing, and allows us to produce limited runs of special items.  It's a win-win idea!  Available in assorted fiber compositions and combinations.

  • Tried-and-true for active wear comfort and reliability
  • Opaque blacks (we didn’t pick up the faulty fabric)
  • Machine wash cool; line dry
