Trend Fashion Textil attending Performance Days
From first layer to outer layer, Trend Fashion Textil will be presenting an array of innovative products and technologies at the November 2011 Performance Days road show. The company has recently invested in ultrasound technologies opening up new options for seamless apparel design.
Trend Fashion Textil, based in Götzis, Austria, is coming to Performance Days with an expanded selection of innovative fabrics, from first layer knits to waterproof-breathable laminates. The company's Bulgarian factory specializing in cutting, sewing and bonding techniques provides all-inclusive services for active sportswear brands.
Ultrasound seam sealing equipment is the most recent addition to the company's roster of high technologies. The state-of-the-art devices seamlessly join cut pieces together, at times covering the seam with an elastic ribbon to offer high-level protection and excellent resistance to wear while remaining very comfortable and barely noticeable to the wearer. Combined with the company's existing welding possibilities, this new technique vastly expands its expertise in manufacturing products guaranteeing total weather resistance.
Knitting is another area where Trend Fashion Textil has expanded its product offering. Working with major fibers, like Tencel, Meryl, coolmax etc., and advanced knitting techniques, the range addresses all active sportswear and liefstyle needs. Thanks to its modern infrastructure, the company can also custom develop products to suit the specific needs of its clients.
Boasting one of the most modern factories in Europe, Trend Fashion Textil is on the cutting edge of innovative fabric and apparel design offering advanced technologies such as laser cutting, bonding, ultrasonic and pattern CAD. The company has invested heavily to respond to the needs of sportswear brands from fabric to finished garment.
