dralon

Dralon® is the name of an acrylic fibre created by Bayer in its Domagen factory in Germany in 1954 and manufactured also in Lingen since 1983. In 2001 the trademark became a company in its own right, Dralon GmbH, a world leader in the field of acrylic fibres for knitwear and furnishing fabrics.
Our Folco collection makes systematic use of Dralon® fibre, a synonym of fast colours, reliabilty and high performance.
