Ellesse is an Italian sports brand since 1959, founded in Perugia by Leonardo Servadio. The name Ellesse derives from Servadio’s initials, “L.S.” Ellesse grew in popularity during the 1970s as a producer of skiwear such as quilted jackets and ski pants. Another sport with which Ellesse has been closely associated since its early years is tennis. The Ellesse logo references the form of a tennisball with the shape of the tips of a pair of skis. Disrupting the state of play, Ellesse tennis brings colour, flair and attitude, on and off the court. The collection for Japan made in Sensitive® Fabrics features hybrid garments matching with mesh details. Key performances include UPF 50 sun protection, perfect breathability and extra comfort for a perfect lifestyle wear.

Especially, the tennis wear is expected to be multi-layered and the baselayer is required to be “comfortably wearing feeling and motility “ as an underwear garment.  We have been looking for compatible suitably fabrics which are also “stylish”. Sensitive® Fabrics are the right ones thanks  to functionality, lighter weight and perfect coloring.
