UNIQLO's Sarafine and Silky Dry lines of functional innerwear for summer hit stores today. Both lines of functional innerwear are crafted to help weather the hot and humid days of summer in cool comfort.
The Sarafine range offers women functionality tantamount to a "wearable air conditioner" that quickly absorbs and removes excess moisture. This line has been further refined for 2011 with a new bra tank top, UV-cut features and perspiration-absorbent padding. Similarly, Silky Dry innerwear range for men is so comfortable you can easily forget you are wearing it and this year has been enhanced with improved anti-odor qualities that further reduce odor.


Sarafine: Superior innerwear offering cool comfort

Sarafine innerwear functions like a "wearable air conditioner" for women. The line is made of a high-tech fiber that combines the cupro fiber of Asahi Kasei Corp. with the modified cross-section nylon of Toray Industries, Inc. Cupro breathes and absorbs excess moisture to maintain a level of dry comfort and combined with the modified cross-section nylon produces a soft texture and silky feel.

In response to strong demand from our customers, UNIQLO has added a bra tank top to the 2011 product lineup as well as items with a UV-cut feature and perspiration-absorbent padding. This year purchasers can also indulge in stripe and dot patterns.
