2.INNOVATION FORUM TEXTILE PRINTING
Inspiring, Encouraging and Surprising on Beachwear & Sportswear markets
Although prints have long remained on the sidelines in the lingerie sector, or even dismissed in favour embroideries ,the industrialists have rebuilt the reputation of prints so that it is no longer the preserve of the flat, iconic Hermès scarf, which has dominated this domain of beauty in the past. Indeed, there is also a technical aspect to this. The ingenuity of industrialists can also be seen through the addition of new functional features made possible because of the printing process: inks with anti-UV properties for swimwear products, electro-conductive inks for connected textiles, etc.; the textile manufacturers now combine aesthetics, high-tech features and innovation.
Notably 3D printing! This breakthrough technology opens up an unprecedented field of possibilities for the markets of second-skin clothing and «base-layers».
Thus, Interfilière Shanghai in partnership with the “Fédération de la Maille et de la Lingerie” will highlight the techniques and expertise of its exhibitors in the matter of “PRINT”.
