Bemberg™ Natural Stretch lining by Gianni Crespi Foderami:

“the precious fabric that naturally stretches without tricks”

Bemberg™ Natural Stretch, the ground-breaking precious fabric by Gianni Crespi Foderami s.r.l. is the 100% sustainable lining fabric created from a cutting-edge highly engineered process.

Specialized in the creation of linings for high quality menswear, womenswear and children wear, Gianni Crespi Foderami s.r.l. has teamed up with Bemberg™, the Japanese brand of regenerated cellulose fibers by leading materials manufacturer Asahi Kasei, to develop a precious 100% Bemberg™ lining with outstanding stretch performance woven in its DNA.

Bemberg™ Natural Stretch was achieved thanks to the leading Italian manufacturer’s ability to vertically set up, control, engineer and design a whole integrated production process, ranging from sectional warping the shipment service.


Bemberg™ Natural Stretch achieves maximum flexibility, resistance, and comfort without the use of elastomers and polyesters. How? The secret is in the process indeed. Elasticity is achieved thanks to a complex way of yarn twisting, weaving, and finishing.

Bemberg™ yarns are smart, responsible and high-tech. Made from a cotton linter bioutility material, the natural derived source does not deplete forestry resources. The company’s matchless, high-tech natural fibers are characterized by a unique touch and feel as well as unique performances such as moisture control and is antistatic.
