quick-dry

1996-2000

Between 1996 and 2000, Little Donkey Andy(LDA) mainly focuses on the research and production of quick-dry Clothing. Hand washes clothes and hang-dry them overnight, most quick-drying fabrics will be wearable the next morning.

Hollow or lubricious fabrication accelerates moisture and heat diffusion. Keep you cool is essential to your comfort as you exercise and play outdoors

Heat Loss

During the high-intensity phases, perspiration increases and your clothes become soaked with sweat. Wet garments drastically increase conductive heat loss. As a result, the body temperature decreases which can be hazardous in very cold conditions.

Comfort

If your next-to-the-skin garments are wet, the friction between them and the skin increases and causes discomfort; especially in the thighs, armpits and shoulders (if you are carrying a backpack) area. 

Clothing’s Weight

If all this sweat gets absorbed by clothing that is not quick-drying, the clothing eventually becomes very heavy. Heavy garments are not just uncomfortable – they also impair your performance.

With the convenience of Quick-drying Tech, outdoor enthusiasts also need sun protection. In 2000, UV protection clothes of Little Donkey Andy(LDA) began to be treated with colorless dyes or chemical UV absorbers that block both UVA and UVB rays.

Sun protection fabrics significantly protect skin from harmful UV rays and provide effective sun blocking. We can have great joys in being outdoors basking in the soft, warm glow of the sun.

Stay cool and comfortable with UV-blocking gear

UV protection clothing provides excellent protection against ultraviolet rays. Help you to stay safe in the sun.

How Clothing Blocks UV Radiation?

UV protection fabrics contain anti UV additive, an excellent source in blocking UV rays, in the core of filament.

What the function of UV fabric?

UV protection fabrics significantly protect skin from harmful UV rays and provide effective sun blocking.

stretch fabrics

2008-2010

In addition to convenience and protection, outdoor enthusiasts also need comfort. 4-way stretch fabrics can be stretched in both directions, crosswise and lengthwise.

A small proportion of elastane introduces just the right amount of springiness and resilience to rigid fabric, and flexibility to a garment. People who are wearing 4-way stretch fabrics are capable of active movements such as jumping, running, and biking.

 

waterproof

2010-2013

Bad weather is inevitable when outdoors. In 2010, Little Donkey Andy(LDA) began to focus on the research of various waterproof tech fabrics. Waterproof and breathable shells are your best choice for a range of weather and activities. However, these fabrics are pricier than other rainwear. Waterproof/breathable shells with fabric coatings offer a more affordable alternative.

Waterproof & breathable shells repel wind and light rain while providing excellent breathability when you're active.

In wet weather, stay dry and comfortable with waterproof/breathable (best) or water-resistant/breathable rainwear (good).

Recycled Insulation

2013-2019

Little Donkey Andy(LDA) sources only the finest materials from environmentally conscious and ethically minded partners. Eco friendly; Energy-saving and less chemical. Recycled polyester, is made from recycled plastic bottles. The production of recycled polyester requires far fewer resources than that of new fibers and generates fewer CO2 emissions.

ULTRA-BREATHABLE AIR-HOLE

LDA start to study how to develop new effective air supply devices. Air-hole new technology fabric allows moisture vapor to escape quickly to keep you dry in summer outdoors.

Special hole opening and window weaving method forms a layer for volatiolazation and air convection which makes heat and vapor evaporated on skin surface. Also large-area fabric prevents excessive loss of moisture, protects from UV and coordinates multiple functions of breathability, quick-dry and UVprotection.

Air-holes new technology fabric. The air holes on the fabric allow moisture vapour to escape quickly, helping stay cool and protecting under the sun without any stuffiness in summer.
