The Japanese textile manufacturer Ecosensor™ by Asahi Kasei Advance has launched Spring/Summer 2023 collection offering high-tech fabrics to create a harmony between nature, body and mind. The collection comprises 40 new fabrics that meet the needs of the contemporary consumer, such as durability, wellbeing and performance. It covers the different market applications with seven fabrics for innerwear, two for outerwear, 17 for sports knit and 14 for sports woven.
The fabrics offered in the collection are made with sustainable materials certified by GRS, RCS or self-certified by each yarn supplier. The stretch fabrics are made with Roica™ EF by Asahi Kasei, the recycled stretch yarn made from pre-consumer materials. The main fibers used include certified recycled polyester and recycled polyamide, but the collection also features some blends, such as in Bemberg™, the high-tech yarn.
Even the dyeing and finishing phases - key moments for performancewear - have been certified by international labels such as bluesign® or OEKO-TEX® Standard 100.
