About the mesh
The synthetic fabric is composed of polyester and elastane. Mesh of high durability, softness and versatility.
The fabric has a great fit and provides even more comfort for the pieces. In addition, the mesh is well known for its practicality during washing, as the fabric dries quickly.
When hand washing is not possible, the ideal is to place the shirt in the machine on the wrong side, inside a bag to preserve the quality of the print.
