“Spacer fabrics are extensively used in the production of three-dimensional materials by the technical textile sectors, which include automobile textiles such as car seat and dashboard covers; industrial textiles such as composites; medical textiles; sports textiles; and foundation garments.

Their breathability is high so that moisture can be released, thus reducing the possibility of skin maceration. Therefore, the level of comfort increases in comparison with other materials such as neoprene, foam, and laminate fabrics.”
