The Company can now produce and market products from the imported machines under the Enka brand in India. The uniqueness of this technology is its capability of manufacturing superfine deniers, which is most suitable in georgettes, chiffons and crepes.
The Enka brand was recently launched by Indian Rayon at Surat at a fashion show in the event titled “from plantation to panache”. Ms. Archana Kochhar renowned designer showcased her collection “Chokhi – inspired by the art of Rajasthan’s historical architectures. Actor Soha Ali Khan graced the occasion.
Talking about the benefit of this manufacturing set up in India, Mr. Lalit Naik, Deputy Managing Director of ABNL said “The production of yarn on Enka machines would give an edge to the Indian Rayon business and also give flexibility to customers in procuring the Enka branded yarn from Indian plant.”
This step is clearly aligned to the need of Indian market today, stated Dr. Bir Kapoor, the President and unit Head of Indian Rayon. “With the growing demand of superfine fabrics in India, especially in women’s apparel and saris, Indian Rayon would be able to entrench its VFY more intensely into discerning markets”, he commented.
Enka yarn has uniform cross sectional properties, high tensile strength, uniform elongation, high brightness and whiteness properties, in addition to the well-established properties of viscose filament yarn having high lustre and colour brilliance, extreme comfort, skin-friendly, soft and smooth feel, unique drape and fluidity.
Though manmade to suit diverse textile specifications, this has its origin in cellulose drawn from wood pulp and hence is 100% natural and bio-degradable. As Ms. Archana Kochhar says “I have used fabrics made from viscose filament yarns. The fabric is a delight to work with especially for the feel and the fall in the superfine fabrics”.
