Galey & Lord, Inc (NYSE: GNL) announced today that it has partnered with Nano-Tex, LLC to use molecular technology in fabric production. Under this agreement, Galey & Lord will use the Nano-Care technology on a variety of cotton and cotton-blended fabrics that will be both wrinkle resistant and water-and-oil repellant. Sample yardage is available and mill representatives are scheduling appointments with targeted customers.

Nano-Care maintains the natural feel of the cotton and does not diminish its softness, durability or breathability. Lab tests show that Nano-Care fabrics retain their wrinkle resistant and water-and-oil repellant properties through the typical life of a garment.

Arthur C Wiener, chairman and CEO said: "We are excited to be a part of this exciting new technology. Our partnership with Nano-Tex will expand our ability to provide innovative products to our customers. We believe the extraordinary performance of these products will have strong appeal to consumers."
