in the fiber market

The world leader in the development of innovative solutions for the textile industry, the Lycra® Company, presents its new technology: LYCRA® ADAPTIV, a new fiber that allows clothing to better fit different lifestyles, movements and different body shapes. body, as it has a unique composition that allows the fabric to adapt to the functional needs of the wearer in a hybrid way, meaning that when the wearer is at rest, the polymer adapts its compressive strength to provide fit, proper shape and control, and when the wearer is in motion, the polymer adapts its elasticity to provide more comfort and a second-skin effect, keeping the garment in place.

Another innovation is LYCRA® FitSense™ technology, a revolutionary innovation that transforms garments by adding lightweight, localized power exactly where it's needed. This technology is a proprietary water-based dispersion that is solvent-free and includes the same molecule as LYCRA® fiber. The dispersion is made directly inside or outside the garments and. allows you to create intimate apparel, shapewear or active wear without compromising comfort, breathability and durability.

Within its initiatives, which include a circular economy, the company launched its first yarns made 100% from textile waste: COOLMAX® EcoMade and THERMOLITE® EcoMade. These yarns are the first in a series of innovations, based on the recycling of textiles and clothing. It is a unique depolymerization and refining process used to convert textile waste, which consists of leftovers from the production of clothing manufacturers, into fibers with properties comparable to virgin polyester.

From Colombia

The textile and clothing industry in the country has been working to obtain a model that takes advantage of each resource in the companies' value chain; reducing, reusing and recycling the elements that intervene in the different processes. A Colombian company of more than 40 years, Laces SA will offer a sustainable offer as an important contribution to environmental care and as a corporate commitment, Laces SA continues to strengthen its GO GREEN® line, the one with the largest exportation, due to the infrastructure and responsible process at the time to develop the yarn, and with which it has achieved global certifications such as OEKO-TEX and GRS.

GO GREEN® is a collection that has been developed using recycled Nylon that, thanks to its recycling process, has a 50% reduction in the environmental footprint left by the production of each kilo of yarn. The recycling of pre-consumer yarn allows the elimination of about 70% of the extraction of natural resources and production processes.

As a complement to the integrated and sustainable supply of textiles, the category of control garments appears, which continues to strengthen in the national and global market. At the export level, lace made from special technologies such as the GO GREEN® line and SKIN SOFT continue to be the most in demand. During 2021, microfibers with differentiated weight and touch were the most popular.
