The LYCRA Company innovates and produces exceptional fiber and technology solutions for the global apparel and hygiene industries, as well as specialty chemicals used to create quality spandex. Our customers appreciate the value our globally recognized brands, innovative products, technical expertise, and unmatched marketing support adds to their products.
While our company name is new, our legacy stretches back to 1958 with the invention of the original spandex yarn, LYCRA® fiber. Today, our advanced technologies deliver comfort and lasting performance benefits to clothing in virtually every apparel category, including ready-to-wear and denim, activewear and athleisure, lingerie and underwear, hosiery and socks, as well as swimwear.
