Nextil formerly Dogi International Fabrics based in Spain recently announced its plans to implement Lycra Fitsense technology in collaboration with Invista, owner of the Lycra brand and products mainly for the European and US markets.
The Fitsense technology is developed by Invista that allows the use of finer and technically more advanced fabrics called second skin. The main aim is to reduce the number of seams in sports garments while guaranteeing the support and comfort properties of traditional corsetry garments. The technology has been developed to help apparel producers to reduce the manufacturing costs, improve the fabric quality along with the fit of the garment in clothing such as tops, leggings and lingerie.
Invista preferred Nextile as reliable partner due to Nextile’s leading expertise in the athleisure market segment. The latter has powerful design teams in the field of fabric technology as well as high-quality printing. The group makes garments for various leading brands including Inditex, Mango, Desigual and El Corte Inglés
Alfredo Bru, CEO, Nextil said, “In a market increasingly adapted to technology and innovation, the collaboration with a leading company in the sector, such as Invista, will allow us to improve the Group’s competitive position with the objective of becoming one of the main players in the growing trend of athleisure.”
It is worth mentioning that the new agreement will allow Nextile to reinforce its positioning in the sector boosting the design and sportswear manufacture business unit. It continues to work not only in the improvement of its processes but also in the search for new strategic opportunities within the textile sector like the one presented by the agreement with Invista, which will allow it to continue expanding its portfolio of services and products.
Invista, head quartered in the US, is the world largest integrated fibre, resin and intermediates company. It has about 10,000 employees in over 20 countries worldwide. It is the leader in the production of high performance and quality elastane for high technology and performance fabrics for a variety of sectors such as athleisure, activewear, hosiery and intimate wear.
