As the only global event of its kind in the industry, LYCRA® FIBRE MOVES once again proved a unique opportunity to mix qualified professional updates, business networking and social entertainment – allowing participants to improve their business strategies and embrace the future of the legwear industry. The event held in Verona last week was the third such gathering for the legwear sector. INVISTA presented new technologies aimed at providing new solutions for both quality of colour and dyeing and more comfortable fit.
Living Lights Technology was unveiled to an audience of some 330 visitors from all around the world including knitters, manufacturers and trade press. The Lycra® fibre has been engineered to upgrade the quality of colours in hosiery garments while also reducing shine. It has been developed to optimise colour update whilst delivering acceptable fastness properties. The process requires minimal adaptation at mill level and is already commercially available in 16LL and 17LL.
Also presented during the third Lycra® Fibre Moves Conference was the FREEF!T® technology which is focussed on improving the performance of modern waistbands which is a primary concern for consumers. The new construction gives a much more comfortable waistband that has smoother contours and is virtually invisible.
