Fulgar showed its eco-sustainable creations resulting from collaborations with brands that are ambassadors of excellence at the Textile Evolution expo, which was held from November 16-18, 2018, in Milan, Italy. Fulgar is a leader in the man-made fibre market with the production of polyamide 6.6 and covered elastomers in the textile and technical sector.

The Textile Evolution exhibition, with almost two thousand registered visitors during the thirteen days of the event, which for the first time hosted the best of Italian technical fabric production. Its aim was to highlight the relationship that exists in Italy’s textile industry between research, creativity in design, sustainability and technology.

Visitors to Textile Evolution could admire outerwear from urban-sportswear brand Sease, made in the innovative sunrise fabric using bio-based Evo by Fulgar yarn, sports garments by Cifra combining the use of Evo with the exclusive patented WKS technology, the prestigious ecological lace by Iluna containing recycled Q-NOVA fibre for lingerie. Other applications and items were from the ‘The Sustainable Kit’ collection by eco-designer Tiziano Guardini, made with Fulgar’s range of eco yarns and launched at the MFW2018, according to Fulgar.

Alongside the finished garments, an exciting display presented a close-up experience of Fulgar’s eco- sustainable yarns - Evo, a yarn made from castor oil, a totally-renewable plant not intended as a food resource, and Q-Nova, a fibre made exclusively from regenerated raw materials without the use of chemicals.

Textile Evolution also hosted the presentation of Luminescente, the innovative experimental technology developed by company’s R&D labs that enables the creation of garments and accessories that are also visible in the dark, a feature made possible by the use of natural minerals incorporated in a 6.6 polyamide yarn that can store light and fluoresce in conditions of total or partial darkness.

Fulgar also made a contribution to the ‘Textile Sustainability – the brands describe themselves’ debate during the national convention on November 23, 2018, alongside the show, organised by AICTC (Italian Association of Textile and Dyeing Chemistry). The contribution made by Alan Garosi, marketing manager Fulgar, entitled ‘Biosynthetics, a new generation of man-made fibres: from plant to nylon’ examined the value of new eco-sustainable fibres like the versatile, innovative Evo fibre, a bio-based product made from castor oil plants.
