The lightweight, breathable and waterproof Naturalle fabric selected by the Textrends is a three-layer laminate stretch ripstop. A Hua Mao stretch dobby Naturalle fabric was also recognized as a Top 10 winner in the outer layer category, which showcases lightweight but ultra-resistant woven, stretch, waterproof, windproof and multi-layer fabrics for exceptional protection against the elements.
