ey aspects to this season’s trends continue to be influenced by the need for
a harmonious balance in work/leisure time, as healthier lifestyles are pursued and the growth
in the sportswear market is targeted. This is also reflected through an air of positivity and
optimism, moods that are becoming the daily mantra in moving forward and interpreted
through the NILIT® trends in spirited ways through textural aspects, comfort, performance,
color and varying degrees of luminosity.
ustainability continues to influence the market, but this season with a renewed openness
and transparency from all sectors of the textile chain. Consumers want to know they can trust
their brands to be socially compliant but at the same time deliver something new. Sustainable
processes continue to be an integral part of the textile chain, with reduced water, energy, and
recycled aspects featuring alongside more efficient manufacturing processes.
o progress into the future, collaboration has to come into play and it is time to
cooperate, creating a multilateral community than be purely focused on self-interest.
Companies are pooling their knowledge and sharing ideas in creating the desired ‘newness’
consumers are looking for, a crucial aspect in the textile sector as the generic offering widens.
Textile companies need to cross boundaries and apply their technical know-how to new
sectors, doing so with the added confidence that NILIT® yarns deliver.
