ISPO Textrends announces Fall/Winter 2018/19 winners
Jan '17
ISPO Textrends 2017 has announced names of the winners for the best product for fall/winter 2018/19 products, selected by international textile jury of textile professionals from different areas of the industry. The process ensures the products selected by the jury are the top of their game, marked on innovation, performance, creativity, and sustainability.

The jury meeting, which took place in November 2017, is a lively event of discussion and sharing information as to how the textile industry is moving. With nine sectors judged, including base layers, second layers, outer layers, trims, and insulation, a ‘Best Product’ label is given to each category, followed by the top 10, and then the additional selected companies, receiving the prestigious ISPO Textrends mark.

All products selected during the jury meeting will be on display in hall C3, in a newly designed forum. This unique platform has become a pinnacle of the textile industry and a must-stop for designers and brand developers visiting ISPO Munich.

Reflective function and decorative appeal was the focus for the best product to UAB “3T - Transfers technologies for textile” in the accessories sector, combined with the added benefits of eco-friendly, lightweight, and bi-stretch.

A similar direction to visual appeal was taken by a reflective TPU lamination from Yaw Liamy, winning the soft equipment category.

The interest in reflectivity as a safety aspect for the industry also featured in JRC Reflex, a 100 per cent polyester with a retro reflective 3D design applied to the surface. The softness of the fabric combined with this new level of reflectivity paves the way for new final products, much more flexible to use during precept manufacturing.

Retroflection also featured in the TRIMS section, with a 100 per cent nylon embroidery thread that has a polymer coating to bind the reflective glass beads to it from Gunold, winning the top position.

In the Base Layer category Invista’s Cordura Nylon 6.6, high tenacity yarn was blended with polyester and Lycra for a lightweight jersey that is abrasion resistant part of the durable Cordura 4EVER fabrics, designed to last.

In Second Layer, it was 94 per cent polyester, 6 per cent spandex double knit from the Sheico Group that took centre stage. Bluesign approved, the unique grooved surface creates a special pattern and gives it a neoprene-like touch as well as an interesting optical bi-colour effect.

A nod to multi-function was the attraction of the best product from the Outer Layer selection submitted by Event Fabrics with a 73 per cent polyester, 27 per cent polyurethane blend in a jersey knit.

With a range of natural down and synthetic products to judge, the jury concluded that the Best Product should be given to Ziran Non-Woven Co., Ltd/FELLEX in the insulation category for a 60 per cent polyester and 40 per cent kapok quality, that offers thermal regulating as well as being breathable, eco-friendly and organic.

A hybrid approach was also taken in the Membranes category, with a tech-leather look product submitted by Everest. Taking an integrated approach to manufacturing, the hydrolysis-resistant membrane is lightweight, abrasion-resistant and waterproof, confirming the continuing trend for fashion and functionality.
