material Functional nylon

Functional nylon is a quick-dry, high-performance material used for ARKET sportswear. Generic nylon was first introduced in the 1930s as a strong, synthetic alternative to silk. Due to the different effects and qualities that could be achieved with the fibre, nylon has been adopted for a variety of purposes, from hosiery to military parachutes and tents. Its resilience and anti-wrinkle properties paved the way for easy-care garments and technological advances have made possible new types of nylon fibres for specific needs.


ARKET uses nylon in combination with elastane to create yarn with a special cross-section surface, which makes the fabric more absorbent and fast-drying. Using a fine-count yarn, the fabric can be knitted into comfortable soft-touch garments with high elasticity such as running T-shirts, sweatshirts, trousers and other pieces suitable for activewear.


Resistant to wrinkling and shrinking, the garments keep the shape well. Finished with a moisture-wicking treatment, they remain dry close to the skin and help to transport sweat and salt – an abrasive leftover substance from perspiration – to the exterior of the fabric.
