Better Cotton Initiative, DuPont, Hyosung, Invista and Lenzing will be present at Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, China, October 11 to 13, 2017. Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a global not-for-profit organisation with more than 1,000 members from the entire cotton sector. At Intertextile Shanghai, its pavilion will feature spinners, weavers and more.
DuPont will focus on stretch – particularly as it applies to performance sportswear, work wear and athleisure clothing. While a number of polyurethane fibers exist to meet the stretch requirements of garments such as these, DuPont’s Sorona stretch fiber offers a superior solution in terms of production time and cost, stretch recovery and color fastness.
Hyosung will display the Creora Fresh odor neutralising elastane. Creora Fresh has been demonstrated with nylon and polyester fibers to perform better than traditional antimicrobial finishes.
Invista will feature latest possibilities offered by Lycra Moves bras, leggings and hosiery. A special session outlining the latest woven bottom trends will also be hosted by Invista experts.
Lenzing’s partner mills will showcase a wide range of their innovative products but a particular highlight this edition will be their Lenzing EcoVero branded viscose fibers – a new standard in eco-responsible viscose offering the lowest environmental impact in the industry.
