28 Portuguese firms show textile goods at Première Vision
Sep '13
28 Portuguese exhibitors are at Première Vision Pluriel present a complete offer from yarn to apparel, in a display that shows the know-how of Portuguese companies, with noble raw materials, revolutionary techniques and innovative products.

Accustomed to work with leading international brands, Portuguese companies return to the iconic Paris’ trade fair to dictate the trends of the upcoming seasons. At Expofil, Tearfil, part of the group António de Almeida & Filhos, proposes the yarns from which are going to be created woven and knitted fabrics for spring-summer 2015, guided by a wide palette of colours, structures and compositions. 

At Première Vision, among exhibitors of woven and knitted fabrics, Portugal has a representation of 18 companies – A. Sampaio & Filhos, Albano Morgado, Adalberto Estampados, Arco Têxteis, Fitecom, Gierlings Velpor, ITS/Somelos Tecidos, Lemar, Living Colours, LMA, Lurdes Sampaio, Paulo de Oliveira, Penteadora, Riopele, Tessimax, Teviz, TMG e Troficolor – with collections full of originality for autumn-winter 2014/2015.

It’s the case of Penteadora, a company of the group Paulo De Oliveira, Europe’s largest in the wool industry and that also includes the eponymous company and Tessimax, which reinforces its DNA of innovation's pioneer with the development of the first fabric with Kermel “made in Portugal”, officially introduced in the Parisian fair and that has France as one of its target markets. “With the emergence of a domestic producer, the export potential of the Portuguese companies is significantly opposed to the import trend existing until now, with all the advantages to our trade balance resulting from there”, considers sales manager António Teixeira.

In a cold season, the luxury velvets from Gierlings Velpor cannot be missed. “The major highlight is on the offer of velvets and synthetic skins digitally printed – a unique process in Europe. There’s also an important bet in jacquard velvets with a vast graphics' portfolio”, unveils João Teixeira Duarte, commercial director of the company belonging to Amorim Group.

At Teviz, on its side, the collection for next year’s cold season is based mainly in fabrics for outerwear for women, with different raw materials, structures and finishing. Among the new proposals are enhanced fabrics with elastane for blouses and jacquard fabrics, the result of the renovation of our machinery park with 70 new state of the art looms, allowing therefore more complex fabrics”, explains Paulo Loureiro, who in the masculine offer acclaims the Portuguese flannel, “our bestseller nowadays” and indigo fabrics. New compositions, as for instance polyester/rayon/wool, acrylic/modal/linen and 100% cupro are also part of Teviz’s novelties for autumn-winter 2014/2015, as well as, “in the area of fabric ennoblement, a strong bet in vegetal dyeing for a “stained” look in all the piece”, adds the commercial director.
