Catalina ELASTAQ, an AQ Fabric

Many companies throughout the ages have branded their own terms for man made fibers used in sportswear and swimwear. One such company was Catalina. In 1946 Catalina launched 'ELASTAQ', an AQ fabric, yours for Carefree California Living. For action, trim sleek swimsuits. Love the two piece twist bust line and bottoms, and the color blocking.
