Versarien LogoVersarien recently announced that it has reached an agreement with an Asia-headquartered "global textiles and apparel manufacturer", which will have both companies collaborating to incorporate graphene into fabrics. The partner remains unnamed , but it was said that it designs, develops, and manufactures a range of different garments for well-known apparel brands globally.

Using graphene ink technology (developed by the Versarien's subsidiary Cambridge Graphene), the collaboration will involve the incorporation of graphene into textiles via yarns and fabric finishes, with the aim of enhancing the fabric properties so that they meet the requirements of some key application areas that the partner has identified.

The agreement is said to be the first major collaboration that Versarien has entered into with its graphene ink technology.
