Teijin to provide polyester kimonos for waitresses at Japan pavilion at Expo Milano 2015

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2015-04-30 17:00:00 – UK

Teijin, a leading technology-driven group plans to provide full sets of Japanese kimonos and accessories made with the Teijin Group;s polyester fabric which will be worn by waitresses at Minokichi, a Japanese restaurant within the Japan Pavilion as a support to Japan’s exhibition at Expo Milano 2015 that opens on 1 May and runs until October.

Teijin’s fabric features deep, vivid colours and an elegant luster, yet is also washable and wrinkle resistant, the company reports.

The manufacturer believes that by combining beauty with functionality, it is a great material for kimonos in a high-class Japanese restaurant, where the waitresses must serve food and drink with both grace and refinement.

Teijin hopes that the lovely yet highly practical kimonos made with the Teijin material will contribute to the introduction of Japanese food culture and Japan’s ancient tradition of providing guests with deeply satisfying culinary experiences.

Moreover, after the expo, the kimono fabric contributed by Teijin can be recycled with Teijin’s ECO CIRCLE, the closed-loop recycling system, which turns used polyester into new fibres that are said to offer the purity and quality of petroleum-derived fibres.

The ECO CIRCLE global system is a leading example of Teijin’s many efforts to contribute to more sustainable societies.

Expo Milano, under the core theme of Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life, will address a wide range of food-related themes.
