Vilene interlinings free from AZO dyes, formaldehyde & APEO
Sep '08
Freudenberg Vliesstoffe KG presents its first Eco-Interlining range at this year's Munich Fabric Start (03.09.-05.09.2008).

Freudenberg recognized the trend towards ecology and the responsible treatment of resources in the textile and apparel industry at an early stage and as global market leader for fusible interlinings, the company is now offering a range of original new products made of natural, regenerated and recycled fibers.

The Vilene interlinings outperform even the strictest regulations on the use of pollutants in clothing. They are free from AZO dyes, formaldehyde and APEO - and are also compostable and bio-degradable.

"Rising crude oil prices are visible evidence of just how scarce resources are becoming. Drinking water supplies are also under threat on a global scale.

For Freudenberg, developments like these are reason enough to treat available resources, like fibers, energy, water, etc with especial care", explained Peter Zieher, Marketing Manager, Freudenberg Vliesstoffe KG.

"That's why we're relying on innovative, environmentally-friendly technologies, like, for example, water jet bonding with its closed water circulation system."

The new Vilene ECO 823 and 825 styles are included in the ecological interlining range - and they consist purely of Tencel fibers, which are mechanically bonded by means of environmentally-friendly water entanglement.

Vilene ECO interlinings can be used for small-area and large-area fusing in ladies' wear, for blouses, dresses and blazers.

For front fusing in menswear, Freudenberg offers the new Vilene Powerbamboo 75, a bi-elastic, medium-weight woven interlining (70 g/m²) of 100% bamboo viscose. It is especially suitable for the classical business jacket.

Vilene Cotton 75 is a new, binder-bonded wadding made of 100% cotton, which complies with the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS).

COTTON 75 excels thanks to its snugly soft handle, outstanding volume-weight balance and sheer washability.
