DuPont's Lycra Assured global supply chain management concept is being extended to the distributors of fibre products and leading yarn suppliers. The first phase, which was launched earlier this year, involved setting up the Lycra Accredited Mills network, which now includes over 300 of the world's leading fabric mills. This network gives garment manufacturers and retail buyers a fast, efficient and low-risk sourcing facility for stretch fabrics enhanced with Lycra.
