This is a reproduction of a vintage bowling shirt produced in the mid 20th century. The rayon fabric used has a nice drape and is carefully reproduced to see the standard of vintage originals.
Rayon is a semi-synthetic cellulosic fiber that has been used in textiles since 1899 and is among others known as the go to textile for Hawaiian shirts. The secret that makes Rayon a perfect fiber for warmer temperatures comes from the characteristics of the fibre. It's soft, smooth, comfortable and some what shiny. Compared to cotton, Rayon is a less absorbent fibre making it perfect to wear in humid climates and in warmer weather. It isn’t a naturally warm fabric, which means that it doesn’t retain heat. It will stay cool and breathable, a necessity during the hottest days of summer.
