Black Yak Corp., a South Korean outdoor apparel and gear maker team up with Hyosung textile manufacturing giant of the country to develop functional outdoor clothing. The two firms Black Yak and Hyosung signs a memorandum of understanding (MoU) under which the sportswear maker will use Hyosung’s odour-neutralizing yarn products in producing its t-shirts and underwear from 2017.

Hyosung’s functional nylon and polyester (PET) yarn products ‘Freshgear’ and spandex material ‘Creora Fresh’ – both of which are known to be effective in eliminating smell of sweat or foot odour in textles – will be adopted by Black Yak.

BLACKYAK doesn’t run own production facilities, but it works with external partners in China, Vietnam and Indonesia to produce its goods.
