At Technotex 2017, TTF will bring a delegation of eight of Taiwan’s top textile suppliers to ‘Taiwan Select’. Taiwan Select is being held by the Textile Export Promotion Project, commissioned by the Bureau of Foreign Trade. Taiwan Select will also provide sourcing support to buyers and manufacturers and provide industry information about Taiwan textile industry. The Taiwanese textile industry has developed environmentally-friendly concepts and done recycled polymer and polymer blends. From yarns for apparels to industrial and sport accessories, recycled yarns are growing in importance and are a core part of Taiwan’s textile industry.
Mixtures of new technologies and fashion allow new design elements that were hard to imagine in the past. Polymer based yarn developments in polyester, nylon, recycled and blended with natural fibers, lead the way. It is possible to have the look and feel of natural fiber fabrics with performance and flexibility of synthetics. Comfortable, breathable, wind and water resistant textiles are mixed and matched in breathtaking design elements. Odor control and a myriad of product enhancements allow new and innovative design directions bringing the consumer endless options.
The final piece of the Taiwan textile value equation is the vertical integration of many of its core textile suppliers into the finished garment business. Garments for yoga, outdoor, fleece and traditional woven apparel and knits of all types can be sourced directly with Taiwanese companies that have facilities in multiple international locations designed to deliver the quality and price needed. Taiwan brings a designed integrated flexibility in apparel from a group of innovative world class textile companies.
