Techno Shirts from Canclini

Ssachs Selects – We take a dive into the best new technical and performance materials that we are most excited about

By Ruth Kelly, Materials Editor (

As the blurring of the boundaries between formalwear and sportswear increase, fabric mills are looking to offer solutions that combine style, comfort and performance. More and more we are seeing new, innovative offerings from mills that traditionally focused on the fashion market.

One such supplier doing just this is Canclini. With their new Techno Shirt fabrics, they are combining the tradition of Italian elegant classic design with cutting edge innovation.

Ssachs takes a look at their Pocket and Biker Shirt options.

Traditional concepts of the dress shirt are re-imagined as the worlds of formal wear and sportswear collide.

The Pocket Shirt

Launched in their SS21 collection, Cancilini’s latest techno shirting fabric is the POCKET SHIRT. The Italian mill brings together the high performance world of technical fabrics and uncompromising Italian style.

The digitally printed fabric has been designed to make a shirt that “fits in your pocket” without creasing or bulk. This TECHNO SHIRT fabric offers both wellbeing and comfort: thin, soft and always impeccable, even after having been used for hours. These garments are so extraordinarily lightweight and soft that they can be worn like a second skin, taking you from mountain top to board room.

Canclini’s New Pocket Shirt Fabric bridges the gap between formal and sportswear

Canclini has always been environmently aware and continues to do so, in fact this is a 100% polyester cloth made of recycled yarn, and GRS (Global Recycle Standard) certified.

The other TECHNO SHIRT innovation is the BIKER fabric, a blend of 88% polyamide (a Nylon 6.6) and 12% elastane.

The finishing carefully developed for this fine fiber – 100/1 Nylon, aims for a light, bi-stretch and dry hand feel. Even after one wear, you can still appreciate the same comfortable features of a natural product, such as breathablity and pleasantness to the touch.

The fabric combines the classic appearance of shirts with high-quality technological properties such as odor free and anti-bacterial. It’s also easy to maintain with quick dry and easy to iron.

Comfort and elegance in a single shirt
