Teijin Frontier, a Teijin Group company, has developed a new linen-like polyester fibre that boasts a highly fresh, natural appearance for extra-comfortable outer clothing, jackets, bottoms, and blouses. It will commercially launch the product in the 2019 spring/summer season, targeting annual sales of 250,000 metres by the fiscal year ending March 2021.

Natural-like synthetic fibres are drawing attention due to their combination of functionality, easy care, and cost performance at a time when natural fibre prices are rising due to an increasing demand for natural materials. Moreover, high-functional linen-like materials are gaining popularity with the reprisal of certain 80’s retro styles. In response, Teijin Frontier has developed its linen-like polyester by utilising a special technique to capture the unique, uneven feeling of linen. The fibre, in addition to offering the resilience, lustre, and natural appearance of linen, also boasts properties that natural linen materials do not offer, like easy care and functions adding, according to a press release.

For a fully natural look, the difference between the thickest and thinnest parts of the thread is about 1.5 times in diameter. The material is a slab yarn in which thin and thick parts appear alternately, with the thick parts measuring 100 mm or more in length. Thanks to its special structure, Teijin Frontier’s remarkable new fibre maintains its linen-like appearance even when circular knitting is used.

While natural linen is prone to wrinkling and bleaching, Teijin Frontier’s linen-like polyester is wrinkle resistant and retains its colour, thanks to dimensional stability. Furthermore, the new fibre does not stick to skin, is stretchable, washable, can be tailored, and is pleasingly comfortable due to its fine uneven surface. (GK)
