Umbro Using Texon’s ProWeave in ‘Speed Silo’
According to Texon, ProWeave “transforms the way performance fabrics are made and how they look, feel and function.” Creating different elasticity, tenacity and abrasion zones within the same weave, ProWeave aims to help brands bring new creative concepts to life. Specifically, ProWeave enables footwear designers to place zonal features exactly where they want them, says Paul Jackson, business acceleration leader for ProWeave at Texon. “This has huge benefits for the wearer in terms of performance, movement and comfort,” he says.
ProWeave is being used exclusively in the football boot sector by Umbro until 2023.
