Wolford and Asahi Kasei to showcase smart innovations at Interfilière

Asahi Kasei, a diversified Japan based manufacturer of fibres and chemicals, and Wolford AG, the company’s dedicated partner of over 10 years, will be showcasing their latest smart innovation for lingerie and hosiery markets at the upcoming Interfilière trade show in Paris next month.

Visitors can find the first innovation in a dedicated Roica Lifestyle space located in capsules around the stand to showcase the latest fashion developments. Here Wolford presents the new Salad collection of hosiery and lingerie made with Roica Eco Smart family of premium stretch fibres supporting the Wolford Gold Certified Cradle to Cradle standards.

“This special Roica yarn has an end-of-life certification meaning it can smartly break down without releasing harmful materials, according to the Hohenstein Environmental Compatibility Certification,” the company explains. Hosiery on show will be in shops for Autumn/Winter 18-19 and lingerie sets by Spring/Summer 19.

The second innovation is positioned in the Roica Lab area dedicated to cutting edge developments poised to go to market in the near future. Here Wolford presents tights prototypes featuring the Roica Feel Good family of stretch that aims to deliver performance functions in brand new items for visitors to explore. “Made with Roica CF yarn it confers a fresh, soft comfort stretch with an active odour-neutralising property that doesn't diminish in wash and wear,” the company reports.
