Textronic TL 43/1/24 produces 'edelweiss' pattern on lace
Sep '08
The lace bra shown here was modelled on an image of gently rolling hills, which are often the starting point of many wild storms. This enchanting garment for providing support and shape was produced on a TL 43/1/24 Textronic Lace machine and conjures up an image of tiny, star-shaped flowers blooming over the mountainside.

Its jagged, decorative, openwork design splays out over a delicate net ground, and its slightly shimmering, filigree look attracts admiring glances. In short, it is a masterly combination of seduction and textile technology!

The TL 43/1/24 which produced this garment uses 14 pattern bars behind the fall plate, can execute shog paths of up to 170 needles, and can process every type of yarn typically used in the lingerie sector. The subtle, flat edelweiss flower design in the lace is produced by using a fine organzine yarn in the pattern bars in front of the fall plate.

Even the finely hatched sections, which fill in the areas between the contours, merge into the overall look so that they are almost flat, which means that nothing can press into the blouse or T-shirt worn on top of the bra.

The making-up details for the entire bra are also included in the lapping plan for the TL 43/1/24, which is used to produce this attractive support textile. The efficient Textronic Lace machine produces the side pieces and cup sections in a single piece, so that the only processes that have to be carried out to finish the bra are moulding and cutting, attaching the reinforcing elements and fastener.

These stages were carried out by Susa, a making-up and distribution company based in Heubach. As well as attaching the fastener and straps, this lingerie specialist also secured silicone tapes to the edges to create a filigree effect.

Susa said that the panel fabric produced on the TL 43/1/24 was very easy to process and saw it as a useful contribution to the continuing trend for underwear fabrics requiring very little making-up – for producing lingerie that is almost ready-to-wear, in fact! The development work carried out at KARL MAYER also illustrates the wide range of articles that this newcomer to the Textronic Lace series can produce.
