Tencel fiber – “Green” fiber

Natural wood pulp is used, and the pulp is dissolved in ammonium oxide solvent and spun directly, which is done completely under physical action.

In addition to the properties of natural fibers and viscose fibers, TENCEL also has the characteristics of high strength and good drapability. Through pure spinning, blending, interweaving products with elegant texture, breathable and moisture permeable, luster and soft style, Tencel is used to make high fashion fabrics of regular guests! Because of its production process without toxic emissions, Tencel products can be biochemically dissolved after use, will not cause pollution to the environment, so it is known as the “green” fiber.

Sea Island fiber is a member of the micro denier family.

Sea Island fiber is a member of the micro denier family.

The fiber compounded with sea island type microfiber and high shrinkage raw silk can better express the effect of artificial leather because the microfiber effect on its surface is maximized.

Suede produced with sea island silk has high softness, good elasticity, antibacterial and anti-mildew, strong breathability, is a kind of anti-wrinkle performance excellent simulation leather fabric, suitable for men and women’s tops, trench coats, vests, women’s skirts and other clothing; at the same time can be made bags, shoes, curtains, sofa cloth, car covers, etc.; with suede to do wipe clean cloth, can wipe the aircraft, precision instruments, computers, glass products, etc.

Modal fiber – the perfect combination of natural fiber texture and man-made fiber practicality

This is my favorite fabric for everyday use!

Modal fiber is made from Mao camphor wood pulp meal and is a high strength, high moisture factor cellulose fiber.

Its advantage is that it combines the texture of natural fiber and the practicality of man-made fiber into one, with the softness of cotton, the luster of silk, and the smoothness of hemp, and it is better than cotton in water absorption and breathability, and it can be processed on traditional dyeing and finishing equipment. Fabric drapability, size stability, after many washes can still maintain bright colors, mainly as high-end fashion fabrics.

Modal fiber is taken from nature, and then can be returned to nature through nature’s biodegradation, fully reflecting its green and regenerative characteristics.

Acetate – the darling of dinner dresses, the “celebrity” of chemical fibers

Acetate is a semi-synthetic fiber made from cellulose extracted and purified from natural wood pulp. Its characteristics reflect both the style of natural fibers and the functions of synthetic fibers, with good dimensional stability, silk-like luster, coolness and drapability.

In the women’s apparel market, acetate has always had a place in popular ready-to-wear because of its dry, soft touch, especially in evening wear designs. Seamless bras made of elastane plus acetate have become fashionable with simple plain cups worn with outerwear. Acetate is a premium fiber that meets the strict requirements of consumers for textiles.

Soy protein fiber-“artificial cashmere”

Soybean meal, which used to be used only for feeding and fertilizer, can now be used for spinning and weaving. Soy protein fiber, known as “artificial cashmere”, is the only fiber material developed independently by China and has been the first to achieve successful industrialization tests internationally.

Soy protein fiber not only has the characteristics of fine monofilament, light specific gravity, high strength and elongation, good acid and alkali resistance, but also has a cashmere-like feel and warmth. Soybean fiber pure spinning or blended with wool, silk, cotton, hemp, polyester and other fibers of new fabrics, with good luster, drapability and wrinkle resistance, is the ideal material for making high-grade underwear, cashmere sweaters, high-grade casual clothing, suits, sportswear and home textiles.

Bamboo fiber-regenerative plant fiber

Bamboo fiber, namely bamboo pulp fiber, is a kind of regenerative plant fiber.

Bamboo fiber fabric has good moisture absorption, moisture release, smooth feel, draping type, resilience, wear resistance, good dyeing, bright luster, UV resistance, but the shortcoming is low wet strength. It is usually used in the production of handkerchiefs, mats, bedding, carpets, decorative items, daily antibacterial towels, bath towels, underwear and other varieties.

Chrysalis Protein Fiber – Amino acid-rich skin care fabric

Chrysalis protein fiber is chemically extracted silkworm chrysalis protein, processed and treated by polymer modification technology, chemical fiber spinning technology and bioengineering technology.

It is rich in 18 kinds of amino acids and has a noble, comfortable, healthy and safe feeling, which can effectively promote metabolism and prevent skin aging, and has the effect of anti-itching and anti-sunlight radiation. It is better than silk in terms of dyeability, drapability, wrinkle resistance and resilience, making textiles with the feel and style of silk. Chrysin silk is used to make high-grade clothing fabrics, T-shirts, underwear, bedding, etc.

Chitin fiber-natural polymer, renewable resource

Chitin is widely found in the shells of insects, aquatic crustaceans and the cell walls of bacteria and algae, and is an extremely abundant natural polymer and renewable resource second only to cellulose. It can be used in women’s sanitary napkins, baby diapers and other women’s and children’s products, bedding and toiletry products.

Milk fleece – the most cost effective fleece fabric

Milk fleece is made by skimming, dehydrating, extracting protein and fleece polymer from milk, and spinning into milk fleece fiber through wet spinning process and special management.

The softness and skin friendliness are equal to or better than cashmere; the breathability and moisture conductivity are good; the warmth is close to cashmere; the abrasion resistance, anti-pilling and strength are better than cashmere; the amino acids contained in milk protein have a protective effect on the skin, and the price is only 1/10 of cashmere; milk velvet can be spun purely or replaced by cashmere and other kinds of fiber blends to form a fabric with velvet style.
