Unique, three-dimensional engineered diamond pattern creates greater retention, superior hold, faster distribution of moisture and less leaking under compression.
Ready-AbZORB – Our pioneering technology eliminates prewashing and drying normally needed to activate the super absorbency. It also reduces 60-80% of the shrinkage, so you get more fabric for your money.
With superior holding capacity, Zorb 3D Diamond can be used on its own, not as an interlining, so it’s ideal for reducing cost, increasing product performance and supporting the environment.
All Zorb fabrics are super absorbent by virtue of their knitting construction; they are not made with SAP (super absorbent polymers), so their super absorbency lasts for the lifetime of the fabric.
CPSIA certified, meeting stringent standards by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission on lead and phthalates and flammability.
A New Generation of Fabric
Zorb 3D was designed to be even more absorbent than its predecessors. The larger diamonds and thicker weight contribute to its increased holding capacity. It retains, holds, and distributes moisture without leaking under compression.
There’s no need to prewash or dry your fabric to activate the absorbency. It absorbs ten times its weight in not even two seconds and soaks up 20 times faster than bamboo, cotton, or hemp knits.
One side of our fabric is made of absorbent bamboo cotton, while the other is polyester with thirsty Zorb 3D fibers in between. It’s the polyester side that wicks up all the moisture, so it's best used against the skin.
Sweat to Success
Our SILVADUR Antimicrobial withstands bacteria, fungi, and algae while acting as an antiperspirant and keeping the fabric fresh. We’re proud to keep toxic, harmful chemicals out of our products, and SILVADUR is no exception.
We also care about your skin, so we tested SILVADUR on bamboo, cotton, and hemp knits. We applied ten times the recommended amount to be extra cautious and found no sensitivity on the skin.
Less > More
We often have to layer to get enough absorption for our products. Not with Zorb! Our 3D Diamond Silver Fabric takes just two layers to do the job of eight flannel, six french terry, and five fleece layers. Need a super-duper-absorbent product? Use multiple layers of Zorb Fabric to turbocharge your product's absorbency!
Each of our fabrics comes with its own unique uses. Do you go to the gym a lot? Have a baby? Need extra protection from germs?
Use our Diamond Silver Fabric for activewear, bed liners, burp cloths, diaper inserts, dish mats, face masks, fitness wear, mop pads, pet beds, and washcloths.
If you’re unsure which fabric to use, you can start with a 4x4 swatch to ensure the material is suitable.

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.
