Première Vision Fabrics
In terms of creative fake furs, the Chinese companies Qingdao Donglim Plush and Nice Gain take the lion’s share. The first specialises in knitted, printed and Raschel fake furs for fashion and the home, ensuring the entire production chain thanks to a fully vertical structure and drawing on the expertise of the traditional French company Tissavel.
On the sportswear front, Polartec, Primaloft, Penn Italia and Shepherd promise to expand the range of fabrics and technical solutions for sport fashions, as well as for casual city apparel and athleisure. The American company Polartec, the historic leader in high-performance technical knits for sport, is dedicating an entire department to the research and development of new technical solutions, from the synthetic fleeces that, in the early 1980s, revolutionized the codes of outdoor apparel, to the recent launch of Polartec® Power Fill™ with its thermal insulation technology. Fleece and thermal insulation technologies (PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation, PrimaLoft® Insulation ThermoPlume®) are also in the spotlight at Primaloft, whose range of performance, technical and comfortable products for sportswear and ready-to-wear readily make use of recycled materials (35%). The Italian-German company Penn Italia / Penn Textile Solution, a historic leader in lingerie and sports undergarments, is developing and producing a collection of technical interlock knits, mesh and tulle organised in three lines: Dream Shape, for high-grade technical solutions, Atelier del Tulle and Ecoinnovation, dedicated to products made from recycled materials.
In terms of fashion for the city, Taiwan’s 496 Fabrics specializes in jacquard weaves with fanciful indigo yarns for the medium and high-end markets, while Italy’s Fasac is a converter developing print, silky and jacquard novelties for both the high end market (Fasac) and fast fashion (Tessile Division). Their rich historical archives combined with traditional and digital printing techniques all reflect a historic Italian company open to innovation yet also attentive to the environment. At Seojin Textile, the dyeing process takes on particularly significance. Specialized in the production and dyeing of synthetic garments, especially made from polyester and high-density nylon, this South Korean weaver also offers customized post-garment finishings, for casual and chic ready-to-wear.
At Burel Mountain Originals, felted broadcloth for apparel and accessories takes the spotlight. This Portuguese company favours 100% natural local wools with very authentic accents, which it further highlights with original finishings, colourful designs and stylish marketing.
Not forgetting the high-end circular knits from China’s Topson; along with the art of linings, which has been the specialty at IDF (Industrial de Forreria) for over 60 years. Whether smooth, elastic or printed, in viscose, acetate or polyester, in taffeta, twill, satin or jacquard weaves, the linings made by this Spanish company can be customised down to the smallest detail to enhance any clothing project, skilfully following the shape of clothing and guaranteeing maximum comfort.
Always more exhibitors, know-how and inspirations.
