Nilit, the producer of Sensil, a smart choice for premium Nylon 6.6 designed especially for apparel, will showcase Sensil’s performance collections at Intertextile Shanghai, this week. In addition, Sensil will present Sensation: Spring/Summer 2020, the next edition in Nilit’s Trend Book series.

The apparel retail market has changed drastically in the last decade and will continue to do so into the next. The ongoing shifts are driven by millennials and Gen Xers who demand more from their brands than ever before, the manufacturer explains. They want high quality apparel that gives them multifaceted performance, personal expression, time-saving benefits, and honest connections. They expect their apparel to keep up with their busy lives while helping them look and feel fantastic from morning to night. Meeting that challenge requires thoughtfully designed fabrics and apparel made with the highest quality performance yarns from Sensil.

“These consumers want it all and they’re willing to pay a little more for it,” said Pierluigi Berardi, Nilit’s Vice President of Global Marketing and R&D. “This is not a low price-driven market any more. We developed Sensil to give designers the beautiful, multi-functional, enhanced fabrics they need to create exceptional clothing that responds directly to the market’s calls for quality, durability, functionality, and beauty.”

Sensil Nylon 6.6 is soft, strong, and durable, and retains newness after many wearings and washings, the company explains. Sensil’s performance features are said to include inherent odour control, temperature management, moisture management, and UV resistance. Comfort is enhanced by the cooling effects of Sensil Breeze or the warmth of Sensil Heat. A sense of well-being is achieved when Sensil Aquarius keeps things dry and Sensil Body Fresh makes sure they remain pleasant smelling. Sensil Innergy contributes its energising properties while Sensil EcoCare combines performance and environmental responsibility, according to the manufacturer.

Special collections have been created to showcase the benefits of these special yarns in trend-right clothing that will be on display at Intertextile Shanghai.
