INVISTA, one of the world’s largest integrated producers of fibres and polymers, is delighted to announce the very first commercial fabrics with LYCRA fibre W technology will be presented at this summer’s Interfilière/Mode City show, six months after the technology’s introduction to the intimate apparel industry.

Commercial fabrics with LYCRA fibre W Technology will make their first public appearance at Interfilière show being held from 7th to 9th July 2012.  Brand customers can extend their intimate apparel styling flexibility by connecting with leading European mills which already integrated LYCRA fibre W Technology such as : Boos Elastic Textiles, Brugnoli Giovanni, Carvico, Dogi International Fabrics, EDA, Elastic Textile Europe, Eurojersey, Jersey Lomellina,  Liebaert, Piave Maitex, Penn Textile Solutions, Salamtex, Wegal & Tricotel and Willy Hermann – Superfine.

The new technology provides a robust enhancement for both warp and circular knit fabrics and enables greater coloration and styling flexibility without changing fabric properties. This new feature gives garment designers with the increased confidence that both whites and fashion colours will be bright, long-lasting and true.

•           LYCRA fibre with W technology has enduring whiteness: from fabric knitting to the final selling floor, fabrics are exposed to external forces that can dull brilliant whites. LYCRA fibre T279W is designed to protect across the broad spectrum of these conditions, inlcuding after moulding process.

•           LYCRA fibre with W technology improves fabric aesthetics: its new level of dye pickup enables it to blend beautifully with polyamide companion yarns. Moulded cups and high-content fabrics can now attain a new level of evenness and clarity, with optimized grin-through reduction.

•           LYCRA fibre with W technology can bring confidence: compatible across a wide range of colours, it helps achieving richer, more saturated fashion shades.

W Technology elevates LYCRA fibre to a new standard, by offering enduring whiteness, improved uniformity and richer coloration for fabric and garments in intimate apparel. INVISTA continues to lead the fashion industry by regularly updating its innovation portfolio, bringing added value to customers throughout the apparel value chain. 

Do you know the LYCRA fibre brand?

The LYCRA fibre brand is an integral element in many of the world’s leading fashion brands but is often misunderstood. “LYCRA” is not a fabric or type in its own right. It is not the name of the category of stretch fabrics or clothing. It is the world’s leading brand of elastane fibre and other premium stretch fibres and fabrics that can be combined with many other fabrics such as cotton, wool, leather or even cashmere. It is a brand that delivers the consumer promise of comfort, fit and freedom of movement. A touch of LYCRA fibre ingredient can help make garments and the people that wear them look better and feel better.
