This year’s digital New York Functional Fabric Fair focused on nature-inspired advances in fabric, and brrr° is honored to have been included in the exhibits for cutting-edge fabrics. 

The central theme of the show was finding ways to care for our environment by incorporating natural fibers or waste, recycled fibers or waste, environmentally-friendly production methods, and biodegradable or recyclable materials into fabric manufacturing.

The organizers of the Functional Fabric Fair Powered By Performance Days posed an important question to attendees: How can performance fabrics be both natural and functional?

By tapping into the natural properties of materials produced by nature — such as thermoregulation, moisture management and UV protection — fabric manufacturers can make significant advances in performance in an ecologically sustainable and responsible way.

brrr° prioritizes keeping its carbon footprint as small as possible, and offers recycled options for hundreds of fabrics in its library. 

The brrr° cooling fabrics were featured at the Functional Fabric Fair include:

  • Close to skin and base layer
    • brrr° K0146 (cooling stretch polyester) — Made with 82% brrr° Polyester, 18% Elastane/Spandex
  • Pants woven
    • brrr° D0003 (cooling stretch denim) — Made with 68% Cotton, 9% brrr° Polyester, 6% brrr° Nylon, 15% brrr° Rayon, 2% Elastane/Spandex
  • Shirts woven
    • brrr° W0041-1R (cooling stretch twill weave) — Made with 48% brrr° Nylon, 44% Recycled brrr° Nylon, 8% Elastane/Spandex
