The show will take place at MTC World of Fashion in Munich, Germany on April 20 and 21. This will mark Teijin Frontier’s sixth appearance at the event.

The stand will also exhibit Teijin Frontier’s environmentally friendly solutions that help to conserve fossil resources and reduce CO2 emissions to expand market and improve awareness of our fabrics.

Specific exhibits will include the following:

Teijin Frontier’s next-generation fabric offers a well-balanced combination of softness, durability and elasticity, as well as ultraviolet protection, anti-transparency and snag resistance due to its dense, flat-knit surface.

Lightweight, Thin, Wicking Three-layer Fabric
This lightweight, thin, wicking three-layer fabric made with water-repellent polyester fibers achieves excellent anti-perspiration comfort through enhanced absorption and quick drying to prevent chills and stickiness.

A high-performance material that is both waterproof and breathable, ECO STORM incorporates recycled polyester that has been laminated to a thin but highly durable polyester film, making it an ideal eco-friendly fabric for outdoor clothing. 

This polyester fiber has a unique, highly modified cross-section with eight projections aligned in a radial pattern around a hollow fiber. Notable advantages include rapid sweat absorption and drying, and useful bulkiness.

Teijin Frontier’s polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber is highly soft, stretchable, shape-retaining and durable. As a partially bio-derived material, it also helps to conserve fossil resources.

The products mentioned above are environmentally friendly materials that can be recycled with Teijin's ECO CIRCLE, the world's first closed-loop recycling system, which turns used polyester into new fibers that offer the purity and quality of petroleum-derived fibers.
