In collaboration with clothing maker Paradise Textiles, Australian textile pioneer Nanollose has revealed that it has successfully turned its cellulosic fiber bearing the Nullarbor brand into yarns and fabrics.
The Alpine Group, a leader in worldwide end-to-end textile and garment manufacturing, is trying to create fashion that is fit for the future through its Paradise material science and innovation centre.
The Company and Paradise engaged in a collaborative agreement with the goal of creating yarns and fabrics with Nullarbor-20 fibers.
Paradise has successfully knitted a variety of fabrics, including four Single Jerseys, a French Terry, and a Double Pique, using 135kg of Nullarbor-20 staple fiber to create several types of yarn.
In a few of the fabrics, Nullarbor-20 was combined with other fibers to create blended fabrics that were in high demand among potential business partners and the industry at large. The fabric has been colored black on half of it and left white on the other.
Along with producing the fabrics, Paradise has tested the final product extensively for factors like shrinkage, color fastness, and pilling, among others. The results show that the materials are of a high caliber. The Nullarbor-20 fiber performed incredibly well in the manufacture, according to Paradise.
Nanollose Executive Chairman, Dr. Wayne Best, said that they’re thrilled with the quality and variety of fabrics provided by Paradise Textiles. The manufacturing process demonstrated Nullarbor-20's flexibility and the produced fibers' resistance to the rigorous testing procedures necessary for the creation of clothing. Through this process, Paradise has been a fantastic partner to work with. They have been exceptional in their communication and dedication to the project, and they are looking forward to continuing working with them to create more content.
Ashok Mahtani, co-founder and chairman of Paradise Textiles and Alpine Group, said that they are thrilled to collaborate with Nanollose on an innovation that is highly significant to the industry. By publicly declaring that 75% of all MMCF will be generated from tree-free sources by 2030, Paradise has demonstrated its strong commitment to supplying the garment and footwear industry with tree-free man-made cellulosic fibers (MMCF) solutions. We need the supply to get there, and Nullarbor is a favored fiber that may be able to match that scale. Our team has confirmed that Nullarbor-20 is prepared for widespread adoption through rigorous R&D evaluations.
