Fabric technology

Slix Australia has 2 different types of fabric technologies that we choose to manufacture our high quality Australian Made swimwear from. 

Shopping for a new swimsuit can be confusing, especially if you don’t know what you’re looking for. To best select a swimsuit, you must first determine the right fabric. Each material feels and fits differently in the water, so it is important to choose the right fabric to fit your needs.
