Asahi Kasei to show Roica innovations at Premiere Vision
Sep '17
Asahi Kasei, specialty Japanese fibre producer, is displaying its latest, unique responsible premium stretch and the new innovations by Roica Eco Smart family of stretch fibre for the modern wardrobe at the Premiere Vision show, the global event for fashion professionals, to be held from September 19 to 21, 2017, in booth 6F60 - 6G59, in Paris.

Asahi Kasei and the Roica Eco Smart family of responsible stretch innovation has now doubled its commitment to smart sustainability by receiving the Cradle-to-Cradle Innovation Institute’s Gold Level material health certificate. The Cradle-to-Cradle Innovation Institute’s Gold Level material health certificate is awarded for product ingredients that have been evaluated throughout the supply chain for impacts on human and environmental health, building towards eliminating all toxic and unidentified chemicals for a safe continuous cycle.

At Premiere Vision, Roica is also launching the new Roica Feel Good family of premium stretch that promises a new level of wellbeing performance, with ‘feel-good comfort’ and freshness. The Roica CF yarn delivers an odour-neutralising function that does not wash or wear out.

At the Paris expo, Iluna Group S.p.A will show their Iluna Green Label lace collections made with the Roica Eco Smart family, the next evolution with their new stretch galloon lace, all made with GRS certified materials.

Maglificio Ripa S.p.A., along with their new Roica CF range, are showing a range of recycled-polyamide fabrics blended with the Roica Eco Smart stretch family for a fully smart product.

Fukui Tateami Co.,Ltd., a leading hi-tech knitted fabric producer for outer wear, have partnered with Asahi Kasei making state-of-the-art textiles with Roica for the European and USA markets, now offering responsible solutions using the Roica Eco-Smart family of premium stretch.

V&A Japan Corporation, a leading textile manufacturer, is using Roica Eco-Smart family to develop new textile for the light-middle weight woven fabric for the outerwear market. With the key sustainable values of Roica, Première Vision has selected V&A to be a smart ambassador within the project ‘Smart Creation’. Smart Creation is a way of bringing together and communicating the initiatives and the means towards responsible creation, innovation and production.

Key developments in Roica Eco Smart will be displayed in the Smart Library, located on the Smart Square, hall 3 of Première Vision. The first Cradle2Cradle certified lingerie set and tights by Wolford, made with Roica Eco Smart family, have also been selected as responsibly developed item for the Smart Wardrobe. (GK)
