Marco’s favorite items, latest fabric developments-selection of the Jury’s Favorites at the PERFORMANCE FORUM meeting for the summer 2022 season:
“This edition’s Focus Topic “Inspired by Nature” reflects the trend that natural fibers and functionality go hand in hand. I was deeply impressed by the fabrics I saw and how many high technical fabrics were developed with great function that didn’t have any additional chemical finish. Pure function from the nature! Here are my favorites:
- Stotz Ventile, Ventile ECO 205: Hamp with Organic Cotton high dense weave. 600mm watercolumn without coating. Ideal for summer coats.
- Pontetorto, 9080/M/RC/RES: Tecnostretch Fleece with Hemp/Organic Cotton backing. Anti-microplastic, antibacterial and quick dry properties from Hemp.
- Hempfortex, HG64E314: Stretch Corduroy with Hemp/Yak blend.
- Long Advance, LA-18121-104: With Umorfil Collagene Yarn for skin care.
- Fone-Tai, IGR001 and Chia Her, RU 1640-011: Paper yarn fabrics, dry touch with antibacterial and high moisture management made from paper out of the Abaca plant.
