Munich Fabric Start has presented the HighTex innovation award to Becker Tuche from Aachen, a leader in the production of fabric for high quality work-wear and corporate-wear. The company, based in Germany, got the award for a new product development made combining wool and Cordura with spandex, which is super lightweight and highly functional.

The woven fabric features high abrasion resistance despite its low weight as well as very high water vapour permeability. Preferred areas of application are light outdoor styles as well as streetwear and corporate fashion.

“I am very pleased with this award. For more than a year now, we at Becker Tuche have looked into mixing various clothing segments from fashion, sportswear/outdoor, corporate fashion, and work-wear. Against this background, the wool performance series combines classic wovens in wool and wool blends with such functions as wind breaking and waterproofing, well-known from sportswear. The result is an individually coordinated quality portfolio fit for many applications. In response to the strong interest, we are currently developing other fabrics made of wool/Cordura with technical functions,” Peter Recker, CEO Becker Tuche said in a press release.

The runner-up was Soorty Enterprises, with an extremely lightweight, recycled and water-repellent denim in a Tencel/nylon blend. Rain Shield convinced the jury with its elegant look in addition to numerous properties such as fast-drying finish, water-repellence, thermal insulation, and shape retention. Furthermore, the denim boasts a super soft hand and is finished with a discreet shine.

“Rain Shield is characterised by a GOTS-certified surface treatment and bears the Bluesign seal thereby complying with the strict ecological and toxicological requirements. Rain Shield is a combination of Tencel and Repreve, recycled from post-industrial waste,” Salman Moten, senior manager marketing and business development-denim, Soorty Enterprises said.

With Hyperlight 3Layer and the associated continuous development of innovations and functional materials Mectex by Manifatture Italiane Scudieri came in third. The Italians are known for their high-tech developments in the sports and outerwear segment and come up with new ways and solutions for fusing comfort and function time and again. As is the case with a reflective, heat insulating fabric that glows in the dark or an ultra-lightweight material with a graphene membrane that is both water-repellent, antimicrobial, and breathable.

Munich Fabric Start presents the HighTex awards for innovative high-tech and sustainable product developments, the assurance of transparent processes, and supply chains as well as for investment in the development of new technologies and re-organisation. (GK)
