Klopman, a European leader in the production of fabrics for workwear, will present over 20 new fabrics across four different categories at the A+A 2019 fair in Düsseldorf next week.
Among some of the most important creations are fabrics from the Greenwear range in recycled polyester/Tencel blend, natural fibre extracted from wood pulp; the range of stretch fabrics that stretches both in the direction of the weft and of the warp; the first high-visibility fabric made with polyester and Tencel, new flame-retardants and fabrics made with prints and embossing techniques that allow new graphic and colour combinations.
The Greenwear range, made to comply with the most stringent sustainability criteria, is one of the most distinctive developments made by the company in recent years. It is now enriched with three new Showstar, Oxford and Helford fabrics, made with recycled polyester and, in the case of the latter two, also with natural Tencel fiber.
“This, in particular, ensures the fabric has a smooth and soft effect, excellent moisture absorption and great breathability. All combined with maximum sustainability thanks to the use of recycled polyester in the fabric,” the company explains.
The Workwear range is enhanced by the new Weavex stretch fabric, made from 100% polyester, and characterised by the exclusive ability to stretch in the direction of both weft and warp and then return without change to its original, characteristic condition, which is said to guarantee maximum comfort and adaptability to the most diverse industrial uses.
In the Protective wear range, the company launches a Luminex 10CL version composed of 50% recycled polyester and 50% Tencel. This new solution, in addition to the traditionally invaluable performance in terms of visibility and protection of the fabric, combines the comfort, softness, and breathability typical of Tencel fiber.

Within the same category, Klopman presents the Tecstone flame-retardant fabric, with marked multifunctional characteristics in the industrial sector and with Hydrofoil finishing that makes the fabric repellent against water, oil and chemical sprays, for resistance and reliability.
For the first time, Klopman will be presenting two fabrics, which can be customized with any kind of print, thanks to two new printing and embossing techniques. This is designed to guarantee companies can choose a wide range of combinations of colors and graphics, for personalized results to meet any branding or aesthetic design requirements.
“In a competitive and demanding market like ours, constant innovation is a fundamental key to success and that is why, at the A+A fair, a very important event for us, we are presenting a number of innovations with few equals in our history,” said Alfonso Marra, Managing Director of Klopman.
“The new fabrics are the result of great teamwork by all company departments and of our ability to gather ideas from the market and to interpret and anticipate the needs of our customers from all over the world. We will not stop here and we will continue to make every effort to innovate process and product to achieve even more impressive results than those already achieved over the years and to defend our position as the European leader in the sector.”
