DirecTex works with some of the largest fabric mills in order to provide excellent quality and differentiating fabric lines. Our line of Yaw Liamy fabrics offer pre-coated and pre-treated fabrics, in addition to custom coated and treated fabrics. Fabric coatings and treatments are essential to improving the durability, sustainability, and â€œhandâ€ of nylon and polyester fabrics. Coatings and treatments are not mutually exclusive.
