Cotton/Nylon 2-Way Stretch Canvas is naturally anti-chafe and has a water resistant finish for a quick dry. The 2-way stretch adds a little performance without sacrificing the timeless aesthetic of the fabric.

4-Way Stretch fabric stretches as you move, is naturally anti-chafe, and has a water resistant finish for a quick dry time. The lightweight fabric isn’t too light-and-clingy or heavy-and-drapey for maximum comfort.

4-Way Stretch Dobby stretches as you move and has an anti-chafe, water-resistant finish for a quick dry time. The checkerboard dobby adds a little bit of weight to the fabric, which keeps it from being too light or clingy, and also helps to prevent rashes.

Surf Suede is a mid-weight, 100% polyester fabrication that is durable, yet has a quick dry time.

2-Way Mechanical Stretch Surf Suede has the same properties of our standard Surf Suede, with the added benefit of a little give in the fabric for added comfort and mobility.
