Dunn Manufacturing Unveils SMART Tiers Workout Apparel Line
A newcomer to the fashion textile market, Dunn Manufacturing, Monroe, N.C., is releasing its new workout apparel line with patented two-tier fabric—SMART Tiers.
“It’s absurd that other athletic clothing companies slap a water-repellant finish on their garments, but the moisture has no place to go,” said Lance Dunn, president of Dunn Manufacturing. "It just stays on your skin."
SMART Tiers fabric propels moisture through the hydrophobic layer into the outer hydrophilic Pima cotton layer where it evaporates quickly, leaving the skin dry and comfortable.
"It’s uncanny how well it works,” Dunn said. “I give it to people to try, and they say, ‘you’re never getting it back.'"
Bold colors and performance fashions are designed in house. The SMART Tiers line uses organic dyes and pigments exclusively, and since the fabric uses two different fibers, the fabric's face and back can have two distinct colors.
