FiberVisions, an Indorama Ventures company, is set to present a new expanded range of CoolVisions dyeable polypropylene fibre, at the Denver version of Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, which will be held from July 23 to 26, 2018. Fiber Visions is the global leader in developing, manufacturing, and marketing polyolefin staple fibres for nonwoven applications.
The range of textile and apparel products featuring CoolVisions includes knits, wovens, denims, and insulation fill, giving brands and consumers a broad range of choices from a trusted component brand. The CoolVisions roster of dyeable polypropylene fibre includes made-in-America cottony-soft staple; CoolVisions + Cotton, spun by Grupo Miro in Mexico; and WoolVisions intimate blend of CoolVisions dyeable polypropylene staple with merino wool, spun by Chia Her in Taiwan.
Further development of WoolVisions yarns is ongoing internationally at Peignage Du Mortier in France, the Schoeller Spinning Group in Austria, Südwolle in Germany, and Patrick Yarns in the US. Cool, dyeable polypropylene filament from parent company Indorama Ventures in Rayong, Thailand, also available from Taiwanese distributor Reamou, provides additional design and performance options.
CoolVisions brand’s new visual identification updates its ‘Metamorphosis in Performance’ theme with an abstract butterfly drawn in freeflowing colour, emphasizing the fibre’s key characteristic of dyeability. The new symbol expands the interpretation of metamorphosis to include the concept of transformative change across the apparel business, from manufacturers to brands to retailers and consumers.
Susan Lynn, Global Sales and Marketing Manager said, “CoolVisions dyeable polypropylene is a modern performance fibre with inherent moisture management, thermal regulation, and resistance to water-based stains—without the use of additives or topical enhancements. This speeds the manufacturing process and lowers costs. It offers textile manufacturers and brand partners the tools to differentiate themselves and transform their business, creating products that resonate with today’s consumer.”
