4F

Knitted fabrics created by professionals for professionals

For years, knitted fabrics in the corporate sector were limited to the use of cotton or cotton polyester blends. These blends, even though they might seem comfortable, are not adapted to intensive industrial use and repeated laundering. This is why we asked the question as to why problems that had been tackled for woven fabrics, were left aside for knitted fabrics. This is the very reason why we created 4F in 1998. Using our textile know-how and the materials we were already using, we have created a unique range of technical and corporate knitted fabrics. You won’t find them in fashion or sport outlets, neither will you find obscure finishes giving the fabrics short term functionalities. The only thing you will find at 4F are inherently functional knitted fabrics. These knits will provide stable technical properties all along the life of the garment.

Produced close to you

In the world of knitted fabrics, one could get lost around the world. Obviously, the majority of knitted garments (T-shirts, polos, sweat-shirts, fleeces) are imported from far away. Cheap and of very low quality, these products do not offer the best opportunities in the professional world. At 4F we did another choice : we produce 100% in France, we control production from yarn to finished fabric.

This is why 4F’s knitted fabrics cannot be compared to far eastern imports which flood the european market. Often compared to the Swiss timekeepers, our knitted fabrics are durable, extremely soft, breathable, comfortable and stable even in industrial laundering conditions. They have complex structures like Cotton Club® which offers 2 different materials inside and outside and weighs only 185 g/m².

Real savings

You might think that like Swiss Timekeepers, they might be unaffordable. On the contrary, and this is what 4F is all about ! Like many of our customers, you want the knitted garments you buy to provide perfect colour stability and continuity so that the image of your company will remained unaltered. You might also have noticed that the constant replacement of knitted garments after they’ve been worn a few times is very costly. This is why 4F enables you to keep the garments for 4 complete years without replacement. So you can quickly calculate the huge savings for your company made by using 4F knitted fabrics.
