Excerpt from Report:


Spain-based Dogi Group, a manufacturer of lingerie, swimwear and sportswear made from elastic fabrics, has patented its technology which makes it possible to manufacture garments with integrated seamless curved selvedges. The technology has been patented under the company's Penn Elastic brand.
