Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics to be held from September 25 to 27, 2019, will have a zone called Beyond Denim. Over 140 denim suppliers will gather at the zone. This will display eco-conscious fabrics. Beyond Denim will also feature a display zone themed around natural fibers, eco-friendly dyes and a generous helping of nostalgia.
Orta Anadolu from Turkey will showcase its new Zero-Max line. Described as sustainable denim taken to the next level, the fabric is crafted with an unique twill and elasticity fusion to make the denim soft and shaping, while being revitalised with more color options, recycled polyester and post-consumer recycled denim. It will also bring its Halys denim, coated with traditional artisanal red clay from a local river, for a unique texture and color. Indigo Textile from Pakistan will showcase its collections including 4-D eXpanded (stretch denim), Retro-Relived (vintage inspired looks) and Habitat (breathable yarn for a lived in denim texture inspired by the earthiness of nature).
Beyond Denim will exhibit the season’s themes. High-tech features and skilled craftsmanship are expected to be popular selling points in autumn/winter 2020-21 denim. For standout fashion, high-tech finishing effects (such as reflective, metallic and PU coatings) are predicted to be popular in denim.
