Innovative Workwear Fabrics from Italy

Klopman, a European leader in the workwear industry, presented four new product lines at A+A in Düsseldorf.

Indigostar is the new collection of poly-cotton stretch fabrics with a denim look. The fabrics combine exceptional colour consistency, durability and the toughest requirements of industrial laundries with comfort and freedom of movement for the wearer.

A range of fabrics with electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection has been designed to safeguard electronic components against ESD during their assembly. The fabrics are stated to meet the requirements of the automotive and electronic industries, both in terms of certification and safety, being compliant to international and European Standards EN 1149-3 and IEC 61340-5-1.

The newly developed Greenwear range consists of a recycled polyester range, using PET clear plastic water bottles as raw material, a Fairtrade certified cotton and fabrics with Tencel extracted from wood pulp of eucalyptus trees and produced with an economical use of energy and water

Finally, Kendurion is the fabric range developed with a special dot-print technology on the surface to protect the wearer from abrasion risks. It enables garment-makers to use only one fabric for exposed and vulnerable zones, instead of using a double-layer fabric. This results in a garment which is comfortable, lightweight and easier to make.
