Tokyo, Japan, September 06, 2016 --- 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 that will be held in Paris from September 13 to 15.
The booth, named TEIJINTEX by TEIJIN FRONTIER (stand: 6K15), will feature fabrics made from two outstanding materials — SOLOTEX and DELTAPEAK — including a selected portfolio of Autumn/Winter 2017-18 materials developed with advanced post-processing, spinning and yarn-processing methods.
Specific items in the exhibit will include:
‐SOLOTEX polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber is soft, stretchable, shape-retaining, dimensionally stable and brightly colored thanks to its molecular structure. Several versions will be presented, including glossy textiles and hybrid fabrics that blend with other fibers, making it appealing as all-purpose fashion materials. Partially bio-derived SOLOTEX is also an environmentally friendly choice for the future.
‐DELTAPEAK is a next-generation polyester fabric that combines excellent physical properties with high levels of functionality and quality. In addition to softness, durability and elasticity, the fabric offers ultraviolet protection and anti-transparency, as well as snag resistance due to its dense, flat-knit surface. Many global sports-apparel brands and manufacturers have already adopted the fabric. The booth will present a version of DELTAPEAK that achieves excellent in resilience and glossiness texture thanks to a special post-processing method. Another exhibit will be a newly developed nylon-based DELTAPEAK, a great material for athleisure-type fashionwear.
Première Vision Paris, held twice yearly, is forecasting some 60,000 visitors and nearly 1,900 exhibiting companies from over 50 countries this time. By participating in the show, Teijin Frontier aims to increase its presence in Europe and continuing growing its global business.
