Taiwanese weavers present eco textiles range at Texworld
Aug '11
More than 800 international exhibitors will unveil their new products to visitors buying for Winter 2012. This is a good year for the exhibition, with more than 125 new international exhibitors attending and expanding the ranges on offer at the next Texworld show in September.

New registrations
125 new firms have registered for the exhibition for the first time. They mostly come from the major textileproducing countries in the business: Turkey, India, China, Japan, South Korea and even Italy. Knitwear makes a strong arrival with around thirty weavers, like KSH Corporation from South Korea with a variety of sophisticated knits and jerseys, which are ideal for designers and labels working with fabrics with a high added value, or like the Turkish firm Vega Tekstil, which offers a wide range of classic jersey and knits with interesting weights.

Wool will host fifteen weavers with some very imaginative companies. To give you a glimpse of what is in store: the Indian weaver Uday Industries and its wools in trompe-l'oeil velvet effect, its classic “heritage” tweeds in the “neobourgeois” spirit or its line of recycled wool (a rarity!!!) for designer ready-to-wear and high-end women's clothing; China with two complementary brands worth watching: first, Hangzhou Haichao Textile which is innovative and targets designers and brands at the top end of the market with its lightweight cashmere tweeds in sophisticated colours and a fine range of tartans, which are a strong trend shaping up for next winter; and second, Jiangyin Hailian Textile which tends to invest more in traditional wool (super 100 and 120 and flannel) in a plain pallet of black and grey and a few colours like wine, Bordeaux and plum.

Silk is also experiencing a major revival with the arrival of around ten firms which have their sights set on mid-range and high-end women's labels, including the Italian Serica Malnati with its organzas and silk muslin which, while classic, have been livened up with a touch of vibrant colour such as fuchsia or Klein blue and the Chinese firm, Hangzhou Wanshili Silk that has made silk its key theme with a line of silks especially rich in print following in the footsteps of Pucci and Léonard.

With the resurgent trend for romantic boho, buyers for ready-to-wear will be delighted by the arrival of a dozen firms specialising in lace and embroidery, such as Vasansi Jaipur from India that offers lace and handwoven fabrics, or Marry Lace, a fresh Chinese brand with a line of cotton and organza lace, very “prim and proper” in the entire pallet of dusty and pastel shades, destined for the big-name labels.

Functional textiles are not left out with around ten companies including the Korean Ji Hyun Co with an interesting range of multi-material blends for sportswear and casual clothes.
