Summary of news published during week 29-2015


jpa4Sibil220THE ADDITION of tanthrough fabrics to the product range of fabric supplier Textra is an indication that, after many years of occasional presence in swimwear collections, such fabrics might well be on the verge of making a major breakthrough. First proposed many years ago, the earlier types of tanthrough fabrics posed a number of problems that prevented them from being widely accepted by brands and consumers, despite the effectiveness of their performance. In recent years, however, significant technological improvements have eliminated former problems and thus made tanthrough swimwear more likely to be accepted by retailers and consumers. Despite former drawbacks regarding tanthrough swimsuits, the concept is certainly much appreciated by consumers and, thanks to the new technology, there is now a strong possibility that it will soon become one of the decisive criteria for selecting a swimsuit.
