Coats stories The view from our stands…

When the global textile industry gathered at Texprocess and Techtextil

June 2015

 Texprocess and Techtextil are the textile and apparel industry’s must-attend events, two colossal trade fairs that take place every couple of years.

In May 2015, more than 40,000 visitors and 1,600 exhibitors gathered in the Messe Frankfurt exhibition grounds, home to ten exhibition halls across some 500,000m2 , to see what the industry had to offer. Coats was there with stands at both events.

At Texprocess, we showcased our industrial thread, zips and trims. This included launching the ‘Make it Epic’ campaign and microsite (www.coatsepic.com) to celebrate our ever-reliable premium corespun sewing thread of the same name. We also introduced visitors to our new Signal thread, a reflective premium thread, designed primarily for fashion applications.

Across the way at Techtextil, our Speciality team exhibited Coats’ wide range of high performance thread and yarns, zips and trims on offer, including Coats Flamepro – our range of flame, arc and cut resistant yarns.

Over the week, a few key themes began to emerge including innovations in the industry’s never-ending search for greater speed and efficiency; cutting-edge materials that deliver new benefits; and the role that 3D design is likely to play in the sector.

Another highlight was the Innovative Apparel Show – which Coats was proud to be a sponsor. The show provided a platform for fashion colleges to present designs for technical textiles created with modern processing technologies. This year’s winner was a dress created using ultra-sound welding technology.
