Happy National Textiles Day!
When you click on a pair of Shells in our catalog to get a better look, have you ever thought to scroll down to the bottom of the product page? If not, you’re missing out – there’s some good stuff down there. Below the product description and 360° viewer is a rundown of what goes into making a pair of Shells.
In honor of National Textiles Day, we thought it was only appropriate to focus on the first element of what makes them so great:
When we first started Bombsheller, we traveled the world and the seven seas in search of a material we could wear on the run or on the runway. In Italy, we found Fabric Fatale.
There’s absolutely no question as to why we fell in love with this material:
This 4-way stretch polyester/spandex blend hugs your body while still allowing for comfortable movement, like a second skin. It’s kinda like being naked – but better.
We love the versatility that this material provides, especially when combined with our catalogue of designs. There are few items of clothing that really can be worn out on the street or to a fashionable event, but also the gym or over a mountain, and still be a great option for lying on your couch all day.
The vast majority of the designs in our catalog are submitted by independent artists, and we wanted to make sure we could do their art justice. Quality art deserves a quality medium, right? This fabric is perfect for sublimation printing; some artists put some serious details into their designs, and they come through loud and clear!
The icing on this already-delicious cake? It’s bluesign® certified. The bluesign® system aims for clean, ethical textile production and minimizing environmental impact using these five basic principles:

Overall it’s a pretty sweet system, and it helps us leave a smaller carbon footprint. You can read more about the bluesign® system by clicking here.
