Performance Codes

Highlight the specific properties or qualities of fabrics

The Première Vision Performance Codes were created to highlight the specific properties or qualities of fabrics created by weaver – exhibitors, whether these qualities are visible or not. These codes are available in the Fashion Areas.
G124x124-00795-matierebio

organic *

a fabric with a majority of certified-organic natural fibres (cotton, wool, silk, linen).

G124x124-00779-deperlant

water-repellent

Finishing process which enables a fabric to resist penetration by water in its liquid form, by oil or dirt. Liquids run off the fabrics without penatrating it.

G124x124-00795-matiererecycle

recycled *

a fabric with a majority of recycled fibres, either natural or synthetic (principally cotton, wool, linen, polyester, polyamide or silk).

 G124x124-00784-impermeable

water-proof

Property of a fabric which stops water going through.

G124x124-00795-ennoblissementrespectueux

eco-friendly finishing *

dyes and treatments respecting the strictest international standards (regarding laundering, the absence of heavy metals, water conservation, pollution-reduction).

G124x124-00785-imperrespirant

breathable-waterproof

Property of a fabric which stops liquid water going through but allows perspiration to exit.

G124x124-00795-lavable-confec

garment washable *

a textile designed to stand up to garment washings and wash-out treatments.

G124X124-0793-respirant

breathing

Property of a fabric that consists of wicking humidity from the body to the exterior thanks to fibres properties and/or properties inherent in its structure. A dry micro-climate can thus be maintained between skin and clothing.

G124x124-00790-productionrespectueuse

responsible production

Fabric whose manufacturing is environmentally responsible, and/or integrates fair trade principles and respect for human labour.

G124x124-00780-doubleface

double-face

Cloth presenting two different sides ; each with its specific function.

G124x124-00796-windproff

wind-proof

Property of a fabric that consists of blocking wind, through a weave, impregnation or membrane.

G124x124-00777-climatique

climatic

Property of a fabric that controls the temperature of the fibre in order to protect the body from exterior climatic conditions- be they hot or cold.

G124x124-00792-resistance au chlore

chlorine resistant

Property of a fabric to resist chlorine products, either in the course of its production cycle or during use, thanks to the employment of specific fibres or dyes (resistance to pool water and to chlorine-water stains, control of the level of bleaching).

G124x124-00795-termique

thermal

Property of a cloth which regulates the temperature of a fibre in order to retain a dry and warm micro-climate between skin and garment in order to avoid body chill.

G124x124-00789-naturellementstretch

naturally stretch

A fabric that stretches in the warp and/or the weft, which regains its initial dimensions after stretching. Property obtained without the use of elastane, by a mechanical retraction of the yarn, or by chemically treating the fabric.

G124x124-00774-antitache

stain-resistance

Finishing treatment intended to prevent dirt from attaching to fibres.

G124x124-00788-monostretch

mono-stretch

A fabric that stretches in the warp or the weft, and which regains its initial dimensions after stretching. This property is obtained through the use of elastane, textured yarns or yarns of an elastic nature.

G124x124-00775-antiuv

anti-UV

Function added to a fabic via a special treatment of the fibre and blocking the UV rays that are dangerous to the skin with a protection factor of over 30.

G124x124-00776-bistretch

bi-stretch

A fabric that stretches in the warp and the weft, and which regains its initial dimensions after stretching. This property is obtained through the use of elastane, textured yarns or yarns of an elastic nature.

G124x124-00773-antibacterien

anti-bacterial

Chemical process applied to a cloth to stop the development of bacteria caused by perspiration.

G124x124-00781-easycare

easy-care

Property of a fabric aimed at easing its domestic use.

G124x124-00783-hauteresistance

high-resistance

Property of a fabric to resist tearing and/or abrasion, through the use of high tenacity fibres.

G124x124-00794-sechagerapide

fast drying fabric

Property of a fabric permitting quick drying thanks to the specificity of its fibres and/or its structure, and/or a hydrophobic treatment.

G124x124-00791-reflechissant

reflecting

Property of a cloth that reflects the light. This term includes fluorescents, phosphorescents and retroreflexive.
