Harness LYCRA® brand power

As the largest retailer based in Europe, Carrefour has many options when it comes to sourcing fabric, but it has specified LYCRA® fiber because it knows the LYCRA® brand name adds value to collections. The retailer plans to leverage LYCRA® brand’s 87% consumer awareness and reputation for quality innovations to accelerate purchase intent and increase sales of the new line in stores.
