Family-founded in New Orleans, America’s most interesting city

After decades in the apparel industry and becoming frustrated with common fabrics and production practices, the Andrews family decided to create a better way. Performance garments are traditionally made from 100% synthetic materials (petrochemicals) and treated with multiple finishes: 1 to wick moisture, 1 for sun protection, and still another to guard against odor. The world is now conditioned to wear plastics in order to be active.

We believe that’s a compromise you shouldn’t have to make.

Our Solution

Bamboo Never Compromises

We were looking for a better-feeling fabric that was natural and could perform without chemical finishes (a crazy concept, since none existed). Intrigued by the luxurious feel and encouraged by the performance characteristics existing in the bamboo plant, we set out to find a solution. Working closely with our factory partner, we spent over 2 ½ years developing our unique BamCo® process. The result was a fabric that feels and performs better without chemical enhancements.

Over the past 12 years, we’ve created 15+ unique fabrics that are original to tasc Performance in varying weights, blends, and textures. In an industry where shopping around for outsourced fabrics is standard, we’ve taken the long-term approach to create more intuitive fabrics, firsthand. With the introduction of each new fabric, comfort is our #1 priority, and we endeavor to balance the natural and technical in a way that enhances both the wearing experience and the production process. Each of these fabrics represents years of collaboration, diligent innovation, new technology and most importantly, a sustainable and high-performing alternative to the standard.
