Waitresses at Minokichi, a Japanese restaurant within the Japan Pavilion at Expo Milano 2015 which begins in Milan from May 1, 2015, will wear dresses made from polyester fabrics manufactured by Teijin Limited.

“Teijin will provide full sets of Japanese kimonos and accessories made with Teijin’s polyester fabric that does not sacrifice beauty to provide exceptional functionality,” it said in a press release.

According to the Japanese company, its fabric features deep and vivid colours and an elegant luster, yet is also washable and wrinkle resistant.

“Combining beauty with functionality, it is an ideal material for kimonos in a high-class Japanese restaurant, where the waitresses must serve food and drink with both grace and refinement,” it added.

Teijin hopes that the lovely yet highly practical kimonos will contribute to introduction of Japanese food culture and Japan’s ancient tradition of providing guests with deeply satisfying culinary experiences.

Additionally after the expo, the kimono fabric can be recycled with Teijin’s Eco Circle, the world's first closed-loop recycling system, which turns used polyester into new fibres that offer quality of petroleum-derived fibres.

“The Eco Circle global system is a leading example of Teijin’s many efforts to contribute to more sustainable societies,” it informed.

Expo Milano, under the core theme of ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life’, will address a wide range of food-related themes.

The Japan Pavilion, under its own theme of ‘Harmonious Diversity’, will introduce Japan’s agriculture, forestry and fishing industries and various initiatives regarding food.

It will also present Japanese food-culture concepts and techniques, including traditional values such as discouraging waste, which are useful in addressing food security, sustainability and related global issues.

Teijin main fields of operation are high-performance fibres such as aramid, carbon fibres & composites, healthcare, films, resin & plastic processing, polyester fibres, products converting and IT.

The group has around 150 companies and employs approximately 16,000 employees across 20 countries and posted consolidated sales of $7.7 billion in fiscal ending March 31, 2014. (AR)
