Melanzana Fabrics

Our Polartec fabrics are made entirely in the US with US-sourced fiber. These are proven, high-quality materials from the industry leader in high-performance knits for outdoor clothing. Formerly operating in Massachusetts for over 100 years, Polartec recently moved into a more efficient plant in Tennessee. While Polartec also produces fabric in mills in Europe, Central America, and China, Melanzana uses only their 100% Tennessee-made fabrics. Our fabrics are OEKO-TEX certified to be free of a long list of harmful chemicals sometimes found in other fabrics, and also bluesign certified to be produced with an eye towards sustainability.
