Why we safeguard our brands
LYCRA® fiber is that powerful ingredient inside a garment that really helps differentiate your products. Knowing that a product contains LYCRA® fiber can strongly influence the consumer’s buying decision.
When you work with us, you are getting more than a fiber. We support our customers on all levels to help them harness the value of our brand. Therefore, we consider it our duty to ensure that consumer’s trust in our brand remains high, and in turn, the LYCRA® brand continues to add value for you, our valued customer.
We invest in advertising programs to raise industry awareness of LYCRA® brand infringement. Media campaigns, such as our Zero Tolerance hosiery campaign and our LYCRA® dualFX® technology for denim campaign, highlight the importance of observing the guidelines around proper trademark usage.
Taking action against infringement
We always protect our valued assets—our trademarks—and defend our rights whenever necessary. Many times, trademark infringements are unintentional and such mistakes can be corrected easily and quickly. However, when the situation calls for it, we work closely with authorities around the world to take legal action and protect our brand’s reputation.
If you suspect a product displaying our trademark may be counterfeit, contact us or your representative.
