Karl Mayer launches innovative fabric
Karl Mayer presented the new RASCHELTRONIC fabrics to the public for the first time at ITMA ASIA + CITME in June 2021. They attracted great interest and were the subject of some highly targeted enquiries.
The restrictions on the freedom of movement due to the
coronavirus pandemic has had far-reaching consequences â€“ including physical
ones. Trousers no longer do up, skirts no longer fit perfectly and T-shirts
stretch over stomachs. Those still keen to cut a good figure of course have the
option of hitting the gym, but shaping underwear can also help.
Chic warp knitted textiles can be produced for this
purpose on the RASCHELTRONICÂ® in particular. KARL MAYERâ€™s product developers
used the latest model of high-performance jacquard raschel machine â€“ the RSJ
4/1EL, 195″, to create a new collection of on-trend items offering exceptional
But the fashionable fabrics can also be produced on
all other models of the RASCHELTRONICÂ® series. They feature a high-impact
all-over pattern with subtle sculptural motifs, are soft to the touch,
comfortable to wear and offer a gentle shaping function thanks to their
particular stress-strain behaviour. Reason for the ideal lingerie properties
are well-thought-out lapping and material combinations. For production, a
textured polyamide high filament yarn and elastane were processed â€“ the latter
in a relatively high proportion and by means of a 2 needle overlap instead of
the usual one by one lap. This lends the fabric more strength and enhances the
plastic effects of the pattern. Whatâ€™s more, the elastane fixing in the textile
structure is supported, thus improving the possibility to cut freely, and the
fabric can easily be used without seams. Despite the two-needle-overlap, the
fabrics are relatively lightweight: the surface weight is approx. 180 g/mÂ².
The new RASCHELTRONIC fabrics were presented to the
public for the first time at ITMA ASIA + CITME in June 2021. At the launch,
they attracted great interest and were the subject of numerous enquiries, some
of which were highly targeted.
