Naia™ is a greatly functional material: it offers fast drying times, comparable to polyester, breathability and soft hand feel, alongside being skin-friendly and cool to touch. When blended with recycled or bio polyester, it can provide the performance of a functional baselayer for even the most intense excercise.
