At the New York Kingpins Show, Cotton Incorporated, the research and promotion company for cotton, will showcase in-trend denim directions developed at its Cary, NC world headquarters, and in collaboration with leading names in the denim industry:  Jeanologia, suppliers of finishing equipment for eco-denim; BPD Wash House, Inc., a leading denim development studio; and Moiré Creations of America, textile finishing specialists.

"Cotton Incorporated is delighted to participate in the Kingpins Show once again,' says Teresa Zugay, senior executive account manager at Cotton Incorporated.  "Denim is an important category for both the fashion and textile industries.  Today, the two watchwords for denim are sustainability and style --- the denim directions we are presenting speak to both"

The Cotton Incorporated denim collections exhibited at Kingpins highlight the role of the Cary NC-based company, which for over 40 years has helped cotton businesses grow by sharing market and trend research, technical expertise, and innovations in textile processing.  The company's longevity has fostered strong working relationships with a wide range of organizations and companies that advance cotton-centric innovation. Cotton Incorporated shares the fruits of these endeavors at shows such as Kingpins as a service to the industry.

Jeanologia

The Product Trend Analysis, Global Supply Chain Marketing and Product Development and Implementation groups at Cotton Incorporated recently partnered with the Spanish machinery manufacturer Jeanalogia to develop an innovative and in-trend denim collection that comes complete with measurable reductions to environmental impact. 

Based upon Cotton Incorporated denim trend forecasts, the collection was manufactured using Jeanologia finishing equipment.  Each of the ten pieces in the collection, which includes hybrid animal prints and photo-realistic laser etching, is coded with the Jeanologia Environmental Impact Software measurement system, to illustrate the reduced environmental impact of the process as compared to traditional methods. 

BPD Wash House/Moiré

The Cotton Incorporated Product Development and Global Supply Chain Marketing groups worked with BPD Wash House, the only full-service denim studio on the East Coast, and Moiré, a renowned textile finishing company, to produce an amazing collection of patterned denims.  The fashion-forward collection employs over dyes, deluster print moiré and other techniques to deftly transform patterns such as lattice, floral lace, wood grain and snakeskin into durable prints of wearable denim art.
