Qualitex Fabrics used in Space



Qualitex supplied fabrics for making undergarments of Russian Cosmonauts for their journey to space. One set of undergarments was used for 4 days during the flight.
 
The basic fabric is made from 95% bamboo and 5% elastic. The yarn used was specifically made from natural bamboo which has been aged for 3 to 4 years. Fabric made from bamboo has excellent breathability, high durability, and the ability to dry quickly.

Other advantageous parameters include good color fastness, natural antibacterial properties (which prevent unpleasant smells), a soft and smooth feel, and does not cause skin irritation, thus making it allergy free.

It has long been known that color has significant effect on the emotional state of a person, which is especially applicable for space travel as the Cosmonauts are confined to a limited space for a considerable amount of time. Qualitex laboratory developed a beautiful blue color for this fabric, as per the request of the Cosmonauts.
This has given an opportunity to the Company to showcase the product and enhance its market reputation as a quality producer of modern eco-fabrics and garments.
