With China’s National Fitness Programme well established, marking a shift towards active lifestyle for people, Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Autumn Edition will present the latest functional innovations during September 27-29. Growing middle class and access to fitness resources and facilities has opened market for fabrics that perform world over.

The numbers show its popularity. At this year’s Autumn Edition, the Functional Lab will have a 92 per cent increase in space and a 111 per cent increase in the number of exhibitors at the product zone. The Functional Lab is set to experience more attention than ever. The product zone will feature the Invista Pavilion and Hyosung Pavilion, which will exhibit their functional products, in addition to a dedicated events area that will provide an interactive experience for buyers seeking the latest functional fabrics.

A wide array of functional products are now available on the market, many of which can be found in the Autumn Edition’s dedicated Functional Lab : a streamlined, specially-curated collection of functional fabrics and innovations. Highlights include Klinger’s Pure Cool technology, which works by embedding recycled jade into fabrics, resulting in a cooling effect that lowers body temperature by 1-2 degree Celsius, which makes a big difference when it comes to summer activities. Not only cooling, it also controls odour and protects against UV.

Carvico offers its new Vita Power range, a sustainable techno-fabric made from ECONYL regenerated Nylon that offers a muscular compression function. This improves athletes’ recovery of energy by decreasing the production of lactic acid – and like Klinger’s Pure Cool technology, it also offers UV protection, plus it is resistant to sun cream, oil and chlorine. Other highlighted products at the Autumn Edition will include Save Textile’s fabrics with anti-bacterial functions and UV protection, as well as Woojoo Global’s quick-dry and odour control functions.

Smart functions on show also promise to be sustainable. With more fabrics using technology that increase chemical resistance, as well as UV protection, active wear is predicted to become longer-lasting and more eco-friendly, with a boost in products created with recycled materials. Another exhibitor at the Functional Lab, Xlance, will bring durable, easy-care fabrics that are chemical, oil and cream resistant, establishing the trend for smart products that perform and last well.

These exciting innovations, applicable to a variety of industries including sportswear, swimwear and underwear, are the reason why the Functional Lab continues to attract buyers. At the Spring Edition, Raymond Tsai of Taig Chein Textile described their choice of the fair as a platform to announce their new products. “It’s the most well-known trade fair in the textile industry. We regard it as an international platform, and met many professional buyers from garment factories and brands, 20 per cent of which were from overseas.” (SV)
