Invista to show Lycra T400 fibre at Kingpins
Invista, owner of the Lycra brand, is set to display the new version of its popular Lycra T400 fibre with enhanced sustainability, at Kingpins Amsterdam, a jeans supply chain show, which will be held on April 18 and 19, 2018, in Netherlands. Invista is one of the world’s largest integrated producers of chemical intermediates, polymers, and fibres.

Lycra T400 fibre with EcoMade technology is made from a combination of recycled materials, such as PET bottles diverted from landfills, and renewable plant-based materials. This innovation will appeal to members of the apparel value chain interested in developing more sustainable denim and wovens collections.

The original Lycra T400 fibre is the building block for a number of the brand’s popular stretch denim concepts including Lycra dualFX, Lycra XFIT, and Lycra TOUGH MAX technologies. Lycra T400 EcoMade fibre offers the same benefits of lasting comfort, fit, and performance as the original, but with the value-added offer of sustainability.

Jean Hegedus, Invista global denim director said, “We’re excited to introduce Lycra T400 EcoMade technology to show visitors. It can be paired with sustainable rigid fibre offerings such as BCI cotton, Tencel lyocell, or others, so brands and retailers can amplify their eco-friendly message to consumers.”

Visitors to Kingpins can attend a free seminar presented by Hegedus on April 18, 2018, titled “High Stretch, Low Stretch, Bi-Stretch, Go Stretch”, which will offer a framework for evaluating different Lycra fibre innovations for denim. It will help brands and retailers select the best stretch fabrics for the types of jeans they’re designing. (GK)
