The percentage of fabric made from recycled materials to increase to 60-70 per cent in the next few years, highlighting the industry’s shift towards making sustainability a stable of textile production, according to experts who addressed the Taiwan smart & functional textiles press conference at the Functional Fabric Fair in Portland, Oregon, recently.

Hosted by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), the event featured presentations from three of Taiwan’s leading manufacturers of sustainable functional fabrics: Singtex Industrial Company Ltd, Men-Chuen Fibre Industry Co Ltd and Hyperbola, according to a release from the organisers.

Singtex introduced visitors to STORMFLEECE™, a single layer woven fabric that combines the traditional two-layer soft-shell and fleece into one without the need for a laminated membrane. This method reduces the chemical use and energy consumption at the production phase. This water-repellent, wind-resistance fabric is widely used by many well-known outdoor brands.

Men-Chuen, a textile knitting and dyeing and finishing manufacturer, showcased its computer jacquard, which allows the company to offer custom designed fabric that’s comfortable, breathable and supportive.

Hyperbola, a new textile company, walked attendees through the process of finding the sweet spot where the elements of fashion and trends meet the technical performance features of functional textiles.
