Nylstar, Spanish filament and yarn supplier last week at the Premiere Vision showcased its â€˜Ecodyeâ€™ polyamide fibre collection for autumn 2016 â€“ winter 2017. The dope-dyed yarns use a â€˜one-stepâ€™ collaboration process, where colouring is added to the polymer during its production â€“ contrasting traditional techniques of dyeing fibres separately.
According to Zuzana Vaskova at Nylstar, this effect gives the Ecodye fibres more sustainable benefits â€“ traditional dyeing uses a lot more water and treatment to compensate for the dye discharge. The process does not use water or any heavy metals, and still offers a higher quality and better colour control.
According to Nylstar, its Oeko-Tex 100 certified Ecodye dyestuff is added in dry form to the polymers which are spun to add the pigment. This is said to result in reduced water and energy use.
Nylstar believes in ongoing innovation and textile research, generating upscale concepts that aim to improve consumer's quality of life. Nylstar matches proactive research and development expertise with the creative vision of retailers, designers and manufacturers to meet consumers' needs. Its visionary approach and years of research have made possible fibers like Meryl Nexten Plus, Meryl Skinlife and more recently Meryl Hyaluronan, nanotechnology man-made fibers.
Premiere Vision was held at the Parc Des Expositions in Paris from 10-12 February. This mega trade fair presents some of the worldâ€™s best designs and fabrics and acts as the introduction venue of some of the most revolutionary ideas in textiles and apparel designs. Exhibition organisers noted a total of 58,443 visitors attended â€“ a figure five per cent lower than its previous February show in 2014.
