WidePlus focuses on performance fabric. The company slogan is Create Lasting Value, whereas its intention is to focus on functional fabrics for sportswear, outdoor wear, and workwear. “One of the biggest challenges in active clothing is the moisture transport”, says Ivan Lu, General Manager at WidePlus.
