GARMENT DYED DYNEEMA® – LIMITED EDITION
An exhibition of 50 garments made in 50 different colours
The STONE ISLAND _ Prototype Research _ Series are native limited editions. They feature garments in fabrics and/or treatments born from research and experimentation processes that have not yet been industrialized.
Dyneema® is the strongest and most durable lightweight fibre in the world. This super light yet extremely tough Dyneema® Flexible Composite fabric has increased tear, puncture, and abrasion performance.
STONE ISLAND has engineered a ready to dye version by bonding it to an exclusive performance membrane with an ultra-light nylon tela backing.
It is a REVERSIBLE JACKET: one side shows the Dyneema® face, the other side shows the ultra-light nylon tela which takes the dye colour as do all the other nylon components of the piece.
The garments are cut and sewn, the seams are entirely sealed by hand with Dyneema® re-enforced tapes.
