Our fabrics are 100% free of PFOS, PFOA, lead, dioxins, heavy metals, BPA, and phthalates. They don’t contain super absorbent polymers, so their absorbency doesn’t fade over time. Read Blog Article
Uniquely food safe. The ONLY Stay Dry Dimple to be tested for food safety. It is CPSIA certified, meeting stringent standards by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission on lead and phthalates and flammability. It is also certified for repeated-use food storage per 21 CFR 175.300 and compliant with 21 CFR 177.1680 and 175.320.
It takes under two seconds to absorb ten times its weight; it soaks up 20 times faster than materials like bamboo, cotton, or hemp knits.
Durable & reversible, it contains thirsty Zorb® 3D fibers between a face and back of super wicking polyester Stay Dry layers
The unique, three-dimensional engineered dimple pattern provides greater retention, superior hold, faster distribution of moisture and less leaking under compression
2 layers will replace 8 layers of flannel, 6 of french terry and 5 of fleece.
CPSIA certified, meeting stringent standards by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission on lead and phthalates and flammability.
All Zorb fabrics are designed with the ability to exponentially increase their absorbency; use multiple layers of Zorb to supercharge your products' absorbency.
We wanted to provide the best absorbent material in the world, so we created our Ready-AbZORB technology. Ready-AbZORB fabrics don’t need to go through a wash/dry cycle before they’re used. They are super absorbent as soon as they are made. The absence of super absorbent polymers ensures that the fabric stays absorbent for the lifetime of its use.
Use It On Its Own
Our Zorb 3D Stay Dry Dimple Fabric can be used independently, unlike some fabrics that must be used as an interlining layer. The material is made of super wicking polyester Stay Dry layers, so it’s soft and comfy against the skin.
Fabric for Everything You Could Need
Our Stay Dry Dimple Fabric is soft on the skin yet durable and reversible.
You can use it for activewear, bed liners, bibs, burp cloths, cage liners, cloth diapers, diaper inserts, dish mats, dog diapers, face masks, fitness wear, menstrual pads, mop pads, nursing pads, panty liners, period panties, pet beds, pet potty pads, and washcloths.
Whether in your kitchen, bathroom, or nursery, Stay Dry Dimple Fabric is perfect for your home.

Important Note about UPF Ratings:
Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) indicates how much UV radiation (both UVB and UVA) a fabric allows to reach your skin. For example, a UPF 50 fabric blocks 98 % of the sun’s rays and allows 2% (1/50th) to penetrate, thus reducing your exposure risk significantly. A UPF 30 fabric blocks 97% of UV rays and allows roughly 3% of UV transmission. UPF 15 indicates that the fabric blocks roughly 93% of UV rays and allows about 7% of available UV radiation to pass through.
UPF 10 to 30 = Fair Protection
UPF 30 to 50 = Good Protection
UPS 50+ = Excellent Protection

Important Note about Absorbency in 3D & 4D Zorb fabrics:
These fabrics are designed to be absorbent and made without the use of any chemicals during manufacturing. Our Ready-AbZorb process helps eliminate the need for pre-washing for absorption and also reduces the shrinkage. However the fabrics are made in large batch sizes on industrial machines and sometimes the fabric may not absorb as desired from when you receive it, or sometimes after cutting and sewing. In such cases, we recommend running the fabric through a hot wash and medium dry cycle; this will help remove any handling residues and activate the super absorbent fibers that might have been affected by handling.
