Teijin Frontier to Make First Appearance at Premiere Vision Paris

Tokyo, Japan, September 10, 2015 --- Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group's fiber-product converting company, announced today that it will participate in Première Vision Paris, a major event for global fashion industry professionals held in Paris, from September 15 to 17.

Teijin Frontier’s booth, named TEIJINTEX by TEIJIN FRONTIER (stand: 6E26), will feature fabrics made from its next-generation materials SOLOTEX and DELTAPEAK, including a selected portfolio for Autumn/Winter 2016-17 that was developed using processing technologies from renowned fabric-producing districts in Japan. By proposing the application of its functional materials for a wide variety of fashions, Teijin Frontier aims to expand its business in Europe and improve awareness of its comfortable and fashionable materials. 

The exhibit will include:
SOLOTEX polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber, which is exceptionally soft, highly stretchable, shape-retaining and durable, and producing deep, vivid colors. The booth will present a wide range of hybrid products that blend SOLOTEX with other natural and synthetic fibers to add new textures and functions, making it appealing as an all-purpose fashion material. Since 37% of its components are bio-derived, SOLOTEX is also an environmentally friendly choice.
DELTAPEAK, a next-generation polyester fabric that integrates physicality, functionality and quality to a high degree. In addition to softness, durability and elasticity, it offers ultraviolet protection and anti-transparency, as well as snag resistance due to its dense, flat-knit surface, making it an ideal material for use by global sports apparel manufacturers. The booth will present a wide variety of DELTAPEAK fabrics for fashion use, including knit fabric with textile-like appearance.

Première Vision Paris, held twice a year, is expecting 62,000 visitors and 1,915 participating companies from 55 countries for the upcoming event.
