We're taking the performance of synthetics into natural fabrics.


Dropel develops performance-based natural, cotton fibers through material science and process technology.

We infuse invisible hydrophobic polymers with cotton (or other naturals) that encapsulate the fibers to create a protective layer, maintaining the natural fabric softness and breathability.

DropelTech Cotton is a water and stain repellent fabric that maintains softness and breathability — allowing your customers to stay clean, dry, fresh, and comfortable.


We focus on function, so you can focus on fashion.


We are market driven

Our market-driven technology platform allows us to deliver the functionality your customers are asking for. And you'll see increased margins when you add DropelTech® lifeproofing to your fashions.

We can customize a solution for your customers

We will work with you to deliver the combination of life-proofing you need — whether its water, stain or oil repelling — odor resistant or moisture wicking — we can develop a customized treatment for you.





The Dropel Team

The Dropel team has years of experience across the entire value chain of textiles, process technology, science, manufacturing, and fashion.

Sim Gulati
Co-Founder & CEO

Founded a multi-national apparel sourcing company at 21 and over the last 10 years has produced clothing for brands such Macy’s, Nike, etc. and established offices in NY, HK and China. Over the years he noticed innovation in technical synthetics but advancement in natural fabrics has stagnated. This led him to create and develop Dropel's first product, water & stain resistant cotton, natural fabrics.
