Penn Asia has been producing functional warp knit fabrics for over 20 years. That experience has helped develop a range of higher modulus fabrics for use in shapewear and larger bust size bra constructions. This same understanding has helped us develop compression wear suitable fabrics.

As part of the Yeh Group, which in total manufactures over 60 million meters of fabric a year for sports garments, Penn Asia has developed a range of nylon and polyester stretch fabrics suitable for sportswear sold by most global brands. These target higher bursting strengths, a variety of moisture management solutions, breathability and suitability for various printing technologies. This area has been expanded with the recent focus on Athleisure sports bras and running wear.

Over the past 12 years Penn Asia has become well known for its warp knit fabrics with selvedge. These are fabrics which have a fixed, and often reinforced edge, such that they do not require narrow elastic trims on the lower part of bra wings, knicker legs, running tight cuffs or bra cups.

These fabrics contain areas of lower and higher pressure, helping to shape, compress muscles or provide targeted slimming. VMF is currently being used in shapewear, bras, running tights and compression sports shirts.

Raschel fabrics with placement jacquards on a warp knit base allow extensive personalization of the fabrics. Our experienced team, with a combined experience in this area of over 50 years, can guide you through the complex design process, grading and even offer assistance in the industrialization of the garmenting.

These are a range of warp knit grounds with all over jacquard designs. They are suitable for enhancing various intimate apparel and sports garments whilst also providing functional stretch. They are suitable for molding, as they have a square stretch.

Theses fabrics include open mesh, solid Raschel, powermesh constructions plus tricot. Raschel Jacquard fabrics with holes have one way warp stretch.

We specialize in all synthetic composition fabric whether it is Polyester, Spandex and Nylon. With over 200 warp and circular knitting machines, the total capacity of fabric we produce annually is around 60 million yards, 10% of which is dyed and finished with drydye. (Our target is to have 70–30 percent of all our fabric capacity to be done by drydye by 2022)

This is a piece dye process in a variety of aesthetics allowing individualization of the color finished garment. Through our in house garment manufacturing the Group can provide fully sourced sportswear garments using these effects.

These are fabrics that have demonstrable zones knitted into them where each zone has a different stretch, thereby creating a variety of pressures within one garment. Both warp and weft solutions are available. This includes body mapping and shapewear solutions.
