According to Karl Mayer, warp knitted fabrics are increasingly being used for producing stylish saree fabrics, since they are efficient to produce and can be manufactured in a range of different designs.

In a press release, the German knitting machine producer said, “Warp-knitted embroidery is already being used widely and include 3-course, hexagonal tulle and various filet constructions.”

“They also include marquisette fabrics and ice-net produced on an HKS 3-M, as well as powernet manufactured on an RSE 4,” it added.

Karl Mayer further added that the delicate, patterned warp knits produced on the Multibar Lace series of machines are also setting the standard for producing traditional women’s clothing.

“Further design options are being opened up for fashion designers by creation of patterns on warp-knitted fabrics using the burnout technique,” the German company observed.

The red burnout design in the accompanying image, which is arranged across the blue background, together with attractive, gold sequins, fancy yarn embroidery work and the heavy border, create a riot of colour.

Karl Mayer informed that the base fabric for the saree was produced on an HKS 4, which in a gauge of E 28, produced a marquisette ground from polyester monofilament and worked a tricot lapping made from viscose yarn on top.

“Following the appropriate pretreatment using a white burnout technique, the viscose was removed and the areas produced were dyed to match the pattern,” it explained.

The product developers at Karl Mayer used a synthetic fibre in a ratio of 30:70 to work the sharp edges of the contours, making the attractive fabric light and airy and comfortable to wear. (AR)
