SEOUL, South Korea — September 14, 2020 — To address consumer desire for more color variety in comfort apparel made with natural fibers, Hyosung has developed new creora® Color+ spandex for natural blended materials, which it will introduce at Interfilière Connect taking place online September 2-30, 2020.
creora Color+ has the same performance stretch characteristics as Hyosung’s flagship fiber, creora Power Fit, with the added benefit of providing richer colors in natural and cellulose yarns — an attractive fiber blend for leading intimate, activewear and ready-to-wear brands.
“As regular spandex does not take color well, it is a challenge to achieve all-over, rich color when dyeing it with natural fibers such as cotton, rayon, and modal,” said Simon Whitmarsh-Knight, Hyosung EMEA marketing director. “With new creora Color+, brands can now offer consumers fashionable, colorful apparel made with natural fibers without ever having to worry about the dreaded grin-through.”
According to Hyosung, new creora Color+ for natural fibers will be a nice addition to its successful creora Color+ for stretch fabrics made with nylon, a well-established yarn used in activewear for its ability to produce deep and exclusive colors without grin-through.
As demand for sustainable materials continues to rise, Hyosung will also present its expanded multi-function regen collection of GRS-certified recycled spandex, nylon and polyester fibers made with 100-percent reclaimed waste at Interfilière Connect.
On Thursday, September 17th at 11-11:30 a.m. CET, Hyosung European marketing manager, Julia Nam, and EMEA marketing director, Simon Whitmarsh-Knight will join Dominique Demoinet of DLD Consulting in an Innovation Encounters Meet Up to discuss how the company is overcoming COVID-19, its move to digital, and the importance of consistent innovation.
