Crimplene

Loading the player...

Crimplene was a synthetic clothing fabric developed by ICI Fibres in the United Kingdom. It was named after Crimple Valley where the company was based.

It was a wrinkle-resistant cloth, which retained its shape and colour well, and was used by designers in the 1960s-70s as a symbol of modern, space-age fashion.

Clothes that were made from crimplene could be produced in bright, colours and patterns and the fabric was responsible for the vibrant look of fashions of the era.
