Invista and Lenzing, specialized fiber producers once again collaborated for Fall/Winter 2015-16 to promote new styles with Tencel/Lycra and DualFX technology. Both companies showcased these collaborations during the recent denim trade shows held in May 2014. Invista presented them at Kingpins in Amsterdam, while Lenzing introduced them at Denim by PV in Barcelona.
Among mills who have pioneered this concept, Tejidos Royo of Spain and ADM of Pakistan, showcased their latest range at Kingpins Amsterdam and at Denim by PV in Barcelona. While Royo’s MeSu line includes fine, sophisticated denims made with Tencel/Lycra and DualFX technology, ADM believes that combining Tencel/Lycra and DualFX technology makes jeans wearable all year long.
Two European mills who are introducing Tencel/Lycra and DualFX technology for the first time this season include Textil Santanderina from Spain and Orta from Turkey. Textil Santanderina is using the innovation to get shape retention even in super skinny jeans along with the super soft hand feel of Tencel and cotton for their ‘Superlast’ collection.
From North Asia, both Central Fabrics and Prosperity have used this novel option of combining these two fibers.
