Quanzhou fabric industry scrapes "light" wind

Thin, soft feel, made of a windbreaker but about 100 grams, wearing a person feels relaxed, no burden. This is a 15D (15 denier, denier is the unit of linear density) that the Shishi Liansheng Textile recently displayed. According to the person in charge of the company, light and thin fabrics are the main products of the company this year and are very popular with the market.

Coincidentally, reporters recently learned from Daihatsu Group that the company established the Fujian Ultrafine and High Density Chemical Fiber Fabric Development Center, and successively introduced the Japanese Toyota Model 710 new energy-saving water-jet looms and related equipment. According to reports, the new equipment is not only energy-saving and emission-reducing, but the quality of the woven fabric is better and the range is wider, weaving 10D fabric products.

Yuanda Garment Weaving Co., Ltd. is also stepping up the upgrading of machine equipment to speed up the development of low-denier lightweight fabrics. Chen Yizhao, deputy general manager of the company, said that the company's products are constantly upgrading, the requirements are more stringent than before, the company's products to the low-dan development, the original equipment is no longer applicable.

Seeing the leopard in the glimpse is evident. Light, thin, and transparent qualities have intensified in the fabric industry, and a thin wind has been blowing in the fabric industry in Quanzhou.

Thin and light fabrics lead the fashion As early as last October at the Shanghai Fabrics Exhibition, there were exhibitors exhibiting clouds, balloons and Other images to decorate the booth. This kind of booth representing light and thin themes became the focus of the exhibition.

At the 2011 China International Fabrics and Accessories (Spring and Summer) Expo, the theme of “thin and light” has also been reflected. The Fuhua family has brought its thousands of products to the show, mostly high density, fine denier, lightweight chemical fiber fabrics. There are also exhibitors will be the theme of the exhibition positioning "Air", meaning the same as the air, the color of the product can not help but think of the blue sky and white clouds, the product's light and elegant visual effects, attracting the attention of many merchants.

"A piece of clothing made from our 15D lightweight fabrics, the total weight of less than 100 grams." Fujian Longfeng Textile Technology Industrial Co., Ltd. R & D personnel told reporters Road. It is understood that in recent years, Longfeng Textile has been mainly engaged in research and development of fabrics with "light, thin, fashion" as the main features, of which 15D, 20D fabrics, set light, thin, transparent, soft in one, reflecting the company to promote environmental protection Concept.

Longfeng Enterprise also gives lighter and lighter fabrics more functionality, taking “20D ultra-thin functional fiber cloth” products as an example, using the complementary advantages of the physical properties of the two raw materials to achieve the best light and feel of the cloth surface. It overcomes difficulties such as 20D sizing, high density weaving, and different raw material combinations, and adopts a special finishing process to achieve the effects of discoloration, waterproof, and velvet prevention under the two-color and sunshine conditions.

“Intensifying the research and development of such lightweight fabrics, on the one hand, can lead the forefront of the popular market, on the other hand, it can also reduce the use of raw material resources and truly implement the 'low-carbon environmental protection' implementation.” Longfeng, South Weaving A number of corporate R&D personnel said that functional lightweight fabrics will continue to lead the fashion trend.

The market prospects are considerable. According to Cai Changjing, chairman of Lianjie Textile, the lightweight fabrics Japan, Germany, and South Korea have long existed, and China has developed relatively slowly. It was only after the 2008 Olympic Games that it began to develop. Huang Liqing, head of Liansheng Textile, also stated that light and thin fabrics such as Japan and South Korea have long been popular, and Jinjiang still belongs to the trial stage, especially sports brands.

According to Zhuang Jiatian, deputy general manager of Yingyi Textile Manufacturing Co., Ltd., in 2008, domestic lightweight fabrics were basically imported from abroad. At that time, the price was 80 yuan, even 100 yuan. Yiyi Textile began producing 20D fabrics in 2008. It is one of those companies that earlier “eat crabs”.

An industry insider revealed to reporters that at present, ordinary 20D fabrics, the foreign market price is 30 yuan, the domestic market price is 10 yuan. However, few companies in foreign countries have mass production, which provides a great market opportunity for domestic fabric companies. "The domestic fabric companies can exploit the advantages of lower prices and mass production to open up the market, including domestic and foreign markets."

According to the introduction of these fabric companies, many of their customers including 361°, Kinba, Lilang and other famous brands have begun to use lightweight fabrics. Considerable market prospects are the cause of the influx of fabric companies into thin and light product areas. In the initial case of the domestic market, many companies are looking forward to a share.

“Since 2010, the company has been focusing on research and development of ultra-fine, ultra-thin and high-density series products and functional and environmentally friendly chemical fiber fabrics, and the domestic industry still lags behind in this regard,” said Chen Shuyi, deputy general manager of Dafa Group. Many local companies, including Longfeng, Xiangxing, Southern Weaving, Daihatsu Group, and Yuanda Clothing, all stated that with the increasing quality requirements of apparel products, lightweight fabrics will become a trend.

There is a technical shortcoming behind the popular “but for now, Jinjiang is still in its infancy in terms of R&D and production of lightweight fabrics. There are not many companies that can make 20D and 15D mature, let alone about 10D. The difficulty is even higher, and the product stability needs to be strengthened." According to the person in charge of research and development of Jinjiang Textile Co., Ltd.

The above-mentioned people's arguments were acknowledged by Zhuang Jiatian. He believes that domestic lightweight fabrics do not meet the "high-end" standards, and many companies want to do lightweight fabrics, but they are limited in the process technology. "The thinner the fabric, the higher the technical requirements for raw material selection, production processes, dyeing and finishing, and finishing. Many companies do not have the means to make a series of continuous investments in these areas."

In addition, light and thin fabrics can't escape the embarrassment of "marketing still needs time." It is reported that due to the start, light and thin fabric products can not be promoted in the short term, which is why fabric companies are quite a headache. “It takes time for a new thing to come out and be accepted. We have also found that many customers and companies are interested in the promotion process. But in the end, we still choose to abandon it because we dare not to use it.” Zhuang Jiatian said. In addition, the price of lightweight fabrics is 20% to 30% more expensive than conventional fabrics. Some brand companies have strict control over the price of fabrics. When the price of fabric exceeds their limits, they will carefully consider the price/performance ratio and will not Inbound shipments."

Zhuang Jiatian introduced that the company’s sales of light and thin fabrics are currently not very large. The company’s sales in 2008 have risen by 20% to 30%, but it only accounts for about 10% of the company’s total sales. Products are mainly sold to Guangdong, because light and thin fabrics are mainly used in fashion women's clothing.

“Mainly because of high profits, companies will follow suit. When light and thin fabrics no longer have a profit advantage, compared with ordinary fabrics, the price will still be relatively high, because the production costs of light and thin fabrics are relatively high, then, Perhaps it is not so popular.” Said Chen Jiaming, deputy general manager of Weaving Weaving, the production process of light and thin fabrics is even more difficult. If the profits are not better, then the production of ordinary fabrics is just fine, why bother.
