AERTEX

Aertex is a cotton cellular fabric introduced in England during the late 19th century by Lewis Haslam, Sir Benjamin Ward Richardson and Richard Greene. In 1888 the three men formed the Aertex Company. By 1891 the company was manufacturing women's underwear in Aertex fabric. Aertex has always been popular for undergarments and sportswear. Since the 1970s, it has also been made into shirts, blouses and skirts for summer wear. It was the forerunner of the cotton thermal knit worn as casual wear.
