The Lycra Company will be showcasing its latest denim innovation – the Lycra® Anti-Slip fibre technology – during the Kingpins24-Amsterdam online event.
The 4-day event will be dedicated to different themes impacting global denim industry like Inspiration, Innovation, Fibres and Raw Materials and People and Social via Kingpins24-Amsterdam online event.
The company’s newly appointed chief innovative officer Steve Stewart will be discussing the company’s innovation process on 28 October (Wednesday).
Steve will be showcasing the Lycra ® Anti-Slip fibre, the latest innovation for denim seam slippage solution with applications in single-core spandex fabrics that require durable stretch and good recovery power.
The patent pending fibre maintains the garment appearance after many washes and usage.
For the developments and innovations in fibre, fabrics and garments, the company has dedicated 100 PhDs at its four state-of-the-art R&D labs.
The new innovation combines the power of Lycra ® Anti-Slip fibre and Lycra dualFX® technology yarn that further improves the anti-slippage performance.
Furthermore, the combination of Lycra ® Anti-Slip fibre and Lycra T400 fibre offers high stretch of Lycra fibre with exceptional anti-slippage properties and the excellent recovery power of Lycra T400 fibre.
“The majority of denim returns are style or fit related, which leads to consumer dissatisfaction with the quality or aesthetics of the product. Several of these issues can be linked to seam slippage. With Lycra ® Anti-Slip fibre, consumers can have super stretch jeans that last longer, while maintaining the fit and shape,” said Julien Born, Chief Commercial Officer, The Lycra Company.
On 29 October, Born and Jean Hegedus, sustainable business development director, will further discuss how the company solution helps in circular economy.
