Plenty of fabrics to choose from when ordering sports apparel in Australia.
We customise apparel for a lot of sports and are often asked what is the best material. While some materials do work best for some sports, you really can’t go wrong with most of the popular materials in the current sport apparel landscape. All sport fabrics are designed to be durable while allowing maximum circulation of air and quick drying of perspiration, also called “wicking.”
Here are some general guidelines.
Medium Weight Polyester
