An R&D collaboration between Italian fashion research and German Product Engineering has resulted in two new projects by Penn Italia and Penn textile solutions.
Dreamshape Magic, is a cut-width fabric with differentiated elasticity and is designed to minimise the use of seams as well as maximise comfort in the space of light shapewear. Moreover, multiple designs within the same fabric can be obtained through this fabric as it plays on different structures, while also including certain interesting lace effects.
EcoInnovation, the second new development is a 100 per cent ‘green’ capsule collection of eight items that includes lingerie, swim and sport wear, which has tulle reinforced edges to the shape-enhancing charmeuse. This displays Penn’s bestsellers with environmentally-friendly flare.
The fabrics undergo the Eco Wash pre-dyeing cycle, which is a washing process for raw fabrics that does not use chemicals and is hence is eco-friendly. These fabrics are made out of recycled yarns (Polyester Radici, Nurel Polyamide, Roica Eco-Smart elastomer).
