Hyosung to show sustainable fibres for denim at Bluezone

August 14, 2019 - Germany

Hyosung TNC, a manufacturer of nylon textile filament, will show its performance and sustainable fibres for denim at Bluezone in Munich, Germany, from September 3-4. Bluezone is Munich Fabric Start's independent concept for denim and sportswear community and involves more than 100 international suppliers. Denim companies will share denim trends at the show.

At the show, Hyosung will be returning with an increased offer of functional and sustainable nylon and polyester fibres specially developed for consumers who want to wear jeans on all occasions and meet the challenges of climate change, according to a press release by the company.

Hyosung will showcase a number of performance stories, including Mipan aqua X nylon and askin polyester – cooling fibres, which are designed to deliver freshness with great wicking performance and a cool touch effect to denim fabrics.

Aerolight fibre is a high-count filament polyester fibre, which gives a soft touch close to natural fibre. "Aerolight fibre is suitable for all seasons, combining the advantages of both synthetic and natural fibres," said Simon Whitmarsh-Knight, EMEA marketing director for Hyosung. "With a c-shaped cross section it provides excellent moisture management, with a softer, more natural feel than a standard polyester."

Hyosung TNC manufactures creora fibre, the world’s largest elastane brand, recognised for its quality in the denim industry around the world.

"Anticipating changing market dynamics, we continue to develop leading sustainable solutions, such as creora eco-soft elastane, which not only contributes energy saving for sustainability with low heat setting features, but also enables stable production of 4-way stretch, with creora Fit2 technology and warp stretch denim," added Whitmarsh-Knight.
