Exhibits will include the following:
- Recycled Polyester Fabric
Several versions of this material will be presented, including ECOPET® recycled polyester fiber made from used plastic bottles, highly water-repellent fabric containing recycled polyester incorporating cutting and fiber waste and luxurious-feeling summer wool- and silk-like materials.
Polytrimethylene terephthalate fiber is not just extra soft, stretchable and shape-retaining but also features a supple texture, dimensional stability and brightly colors owing to its spring-like fiber structure. As a partially plant-delivered material, it helps to conserve fossil resources. Continuing from the last season, various exhibits will be organized to showcase items such as a cotton-like fabric incorporating SOLOTEX® staple fiber.
DELTAPEAK® next-generation fabric offering superior physical properties and functionality as well as a unique appearance and texture. The exhibit will include various evolved materials, from this range that is eco-friendly fiber made from recycled materials, a heat-retention fabric for reduced microplastic pollution and a fabric with a natural-like texture and appearance for diverse uses.
