Karl Mayer attracted a large number of visitors at the recently held ISPO Munich, a leading event for sports textiles. The team of experts from the company’s textile product development department welcomed 400 international visitors. Many of them were specialists with specific issues to discuss, and just under 150 high-quality conversations were recorded.

Most of the visitors were curious to examine the attractive presentation of selected warp- knitted textiles on show. A range of innovative, warp-knitted spacer textiles with three- dimensional patterns, air-permeable jacquard designs, and a shoe style with the design fully integrated into the surface were being showcased. Rascheltronic textiles, which deliver compression and breathability in the same piece, stretch, sporty lace items, and functional, warp knitted meshes were also presented, Karl Mayer said in a press release.

Gabriela Schellner, the head of textile development discussed many interesting, new concepts and exchanged ideas about the latest trends, especially with international brand manufacturers. Many of the visitors also took the opportunity to look around Karl Mayer’s Virtual Showroom using the mega-touchscreen.

An unusual contest was also attracting large crowds – a battle between two mini-robots, controlled by a textile remote controller, which the visitors could try out for themselves. The electrical control technology needed to produce this was incorporated directly into the textile during production on a jacquard raschel machine. The onlookers to this spectacle included fabric producers, as well as brand experts and end users. Most of them were from the sports sector, but many of them were also operating in the medical and protective clothing sectors and were looking for inspiration. Their interests were equally as wide and varied. (GK)
