Sustainable development theme of Expofil to be held from Feb 10

Jan '09
Sustainable development, respect for the environment, ecology, recycling, those are some of the final consumer's concerns that the textile chain has been gradually integrating and that can be found in the collections of the fibre producers and spinners exhibiting at the forthcoming Expofil that will be held from 10 to 13 February 2009 at Parc d'Expositions de Paris-Nord Villepinte.

However, performance is not left aside as shown in technological innovations applied in spinning as well as in treatments. Firmly anchored to the realities of market, Expofil has always favoured an approach that made it possible to give visitors a comprehensive, yet selective, offer that suits their needs precisely.

36 spinners and fibre producers from 15 countries have already registered for the next edition, among them 2 newcomers:

MITSUBISHI RAYON (Japan):
This important Japanese group produces, among other fibres, 120 000 tons of acrylic fibres annually, of which 90% are exported. It will present at Expofil a range of products with special properties: anti-pilling (Vonnel H6 Series), anti-static (Corebrid-B), super fine denier fibre (Miyabi) and Funcle, a flat cross-section fibre. Its main markets are knitting (flat-bed and circular), hosiery, hand-knitting yarns and technical uses.

DARE GLOBAL-SINODENIM (China):
This Company, specializing in dyeing and finishing, presents CPRD (Continuous Pigment Ring Dyeing), an environmentally friendly new pigment dyeing process that allows an energy saving of 40% and a 95% water reduction. Its annual production capacity is 3 000 tons of dyed yarns, in a wide range of colours and fibres (bamboo, linen, Modal, viscose, cotton, polyester, Spandex, Tencel, etc.). These yarns are aimed at apparel weaving and flat-bed knitting. We also see the return of the Italian spinner FILMAR, specialist of 100% long staple, mercerized, Egyptian cotton.

Designed this season by Dutch designer Mies Splinter, the Expofil forum is an inviting way for buyers to discover, as in a jewel case, the spinners and fibre producers' products. The space is conceived as an unfolded house, curio cabinets, with unexpected openings, poetic passages, disconcerting see through. It builds up a precious and sophisticated showcase of artistic know-how for the preview of yarns and fibres for autumn-winter 2010/11.

This intimate space features interferences, with a winter season evolving between discretion, palpitations, precautions, perturbations and exaggerations. A space that unfurls and brings to broad daylight the updated products for spring summer 2010 as well as technological advances and fibre innovations.

The yarn/fabric cooperation continues in the Pulsation forum of hall 5, designed by Matali Crasset. In this area, a specific space is dedicated this season to environmentally or human-friendly products. Developments centered on technological advances, especially in finishing processes, will be displayed alongside the innovations of fibre producers, spinners and weavers.
