Kalmitsu is a high-density polyester taffeta with a remarkable lightness of 35 g/㎡. This was achieved by the use of 17-decitex multifilament "Vega" developed by utilizing KB SEIREN's specific and unique technology. Despite its lightweight construction, the fabric seldom tears, moderately repels rain and wind, and yet remains super soft and smooth to the touch. These features help make Kalmitsu a successful hybrid of both function and comfort.
