ActiveSeam - A new technical story

Far stronger than Flatlock, the ActiveSeam class of stitches is Tougher and will Last Longer than alternatives. With more than twice the stretch built into the seam, garments can be designed in new ways and will fit the human body better without restricting athletic movement. When compared to a 6-thread Flatlock seam with identical thread, fabric, and SPI, our ActiveSeam 2 & 3-thread seams proved to be more than 30% stronger and had the ability to stretch (linear travel) 100% further.

The most Comfortable Seam ever invented

Essentially undetectable when worn next to skin, ActiveSeam was developed to be Softer and more Durable than conventional stitching. The stitch moves with your body and just feels better all over. Next to skin garments wear better and look nicer while being worn. The ActiveSeam is a lower profile seam than anything on the market, but more importantly can be soft on the inside and tough on the outside.
