Carrington Textiles and The LYCRA Company showcase stretch military fabric in Germany


Global military fabrics manufacturer, Carrington Textiles, announced its successful participation at Enforce Tac 2024 in Germany. In partnership with The LYCRA® Company, they showcased Spartan HT Flex Lite, the latest addition to their Defence collection.  

Engineered with military-grade CORDURA® T420 nylon 6.6 staple fiber and featuring a strategic 2% LYCRA® fiber content, Spartan HT Flex Lite represents a paradigm shift in military textile development.

Spartan HT Flex Lite is engineered to endure the rigors of military environments, making it the ideal choice for those who demand both performance and durability.

Paul Farrell at Carrington Textiles, said: “This fabric represents our dedication to innovation and commitment to providing the highest quality solutions for the defense sector. We were pleased to showcase Spartan HT Flex Lite and our innovative defense fabric portfolio and demonstrate how it can enhance the performance and comfort of military uniforms.”
