The Fibres Of Filo: Bemberg And ROICA By Asahi Kasei

BIELLA, Italy— September 21, 2021 — The 56th edition of Filo dedicates much space to fibres. A particular attention is given to natural and synthetic man-made fibers, able to match exceptional performances together with sustainability and traceability.

Among fiber producers who participate in the 56th edition of Filo, the Asahi Kasei group, stands out. Asahi Kasei brings at Filo two of its flagship products.

The first one, Bemberg™, is a fiber obtained by the smart-tech transformation of pre-consumption material of cotton linter and changed into a traceable and transparent closed-loop process. Bemberg’s story starts with the lining of high-quality garments; however, today it is possible to find this material in many other applications: couture, coats, underwear, bed linen, and sportswear, where its unique touch and its incredible quality are particularly appreciated.

The second fiber proposed by Asahi Kasei at Filo is ROICA™. A premium stretch fiber, ROICA distinguished itself in fashion, underwear, sportswear, hosiery, and fabrics thanks to its smart innovation.

At the 56th edition of Filo, Asahi Kasai doesn’t only present innovative materials, but it is the protagonist of three ‘Dialoghi di Confronto’ in the Networking Area of the Exhibition.

During the first ‘Dialoghi di Confronto’ (scheduled on the 29th of September at 4 p.m.), which is entitled “Il viaggio di Bemberg by Asahi Kasei verso una moda contemporanea, premium e responsabile” (‘The journey of Bemberg by Asahi Kasai towards a contemporary, premium and responsible fashion’), Ettore Pellegrini, Marketing & Sales Manager Asahi Kasei Fibers Italia, talks with Giusy Bettoni, C.L.A.S.S CEO and founder, about essential themes for textile’s future.
