The ability to transform viscose-rayon into sustainably produced high-quality fashion that may one day find their place on the fashion runways in Paris, Milan and New York was creatively showcased today by eight aspiring Indonesian fashion designers at Indo Intertex. The designers created designs using fabrics made from sustainably produced viscose-rayon.

This was Asia Pacific Rayon’s (APR) debut at Indo Intertex featuring Viscose World exhibition, a collection of manufacturers representing the full integration of the value chain from fibre, yarn, fabric and garment. They include Duniatex, Argo Pantes, Dhanar Mas Group and PT. Multi Sandang Tamajaya.

"The contribution of textile and fashion to the Indonesian economy is increasing and therefore, the Government is projecting textile export value to reach USD15 billion this year," said Mudhori, director for textile, leather, footwear and multifarious industries, of the ministry of industry in the opening ceremony Indo Intertex 2019. "The debut of APR signifies the future of Indonesian textile industry as viscose-rayon is a raw material for the future."

"We are excited of our debut in Indo Intertex and to showcase the export opportunities for the Indonesian textile sector, as well as the opportunity to unleash Indonesia’s creative fashion talent to the world. The designers we supported today demonstrate that it’s absolutely possible to produce high-quality fashion from Indonesia, with viscose-rayon providing a competitive advantage,” he added.

APR was also a gold sponsor of Indonesian Textile Association (API) seminar, participating on the panel Sustainable Manufacturing and Fashion Trend Analysis.  At the panel, the company emphasised its commitment to the growth of national textile industry under the Making Indonesia 4.0 roadmap, and ensuring a sustainable raw material made in Indonesia to support the Indonesian textile sector.
