Activewear Fabric Trend Report: Performance Textiles For 2023



Technical fabrics with performance-enhancing properties continue to lead activewear innovation. Consumers now expect moisture management, stretch, and odor control built into everything from sports bras to yoga pants. What athletic fabric trends will dominate in 2023?


Temperature Regulation

Look for more fabrics with cooling technology such as moisture-wicking, breathable mesh panels and ventilating channel knits to keep you from overheating.


4-Way Stretch

Four-way stretch fabrics that move naturally in every direction for unrestricted mobility will be big for activities like yoga, running and HIIT.


Quick-Dry Materials

No one wants to feel soaked post-workout. Sweat-wicking, fast-drying fabrics that promote evaporation will be popular for high intensity training.


Seamless Construction

Seamless athleticwear created through laser cutting and bonding rather than sewing continues to grow as the new norm for a irritation-free fit.


Odor Controlling

More brands will incorporate odor fighting technologies like antimicrobial silver ions into material to keep clothes and activewear fresher between wears.


In summary, temperature regulating, stretchy, quick-drying fabrics with seamless construction and odor fighting properties will lead activewear innovation in the year ahead. Kibra utilizes the latest high-tech textiles to empower your active lifestyle. Explore the new 2023 collection today!
