GoodCatch fabric is a self-adhering fastening fabric that is soft, silent and strong. It is a 100% polyester microfibre with no chemical adhesive. The fabric is soft and has a fleece-like feel on one side (GC001) and a terry-like feel on the other side (GC002). Together the fabrics work based on friction. Fine microfibres are tangled up in even finer loops, forging minuscule frictional force. The fabric is easy to open and close and doesn’t make a sound. The two fabrics can also be bonded back-to-back to create a wrap (GC003).
This new fabric offers a new option for temporary fastening. With its unique qualities it can be the solution designers were looking for. It is already used in applications such as in apparel, sport and medical products and the possibilities are endless.
