The Teijintex by Teijin Frontier stand will be located in the Fabrics area to feature mainly two materials — Solotex and Deltapeak — along with displays of eco-friendly materials. Also, Teijin Frontier will make its first appearance in the show’s the Wearable Lab area to display wearable electrode cloth and piezoelectric wearable sensors with fashionable design.

On display

Exhibits will include Solotex, which is a polytrimethylene terephthalate fibre that is soft, stretchable, shape-retaining, dimensionally stable and brightly coloured, owing to its spring-like molecular structure. Several versions will be presented, including textiles with supple and unique textures. Partially bio-derived Solotex is an environmentally friendly choice for next-generation clothing.

Deltapeak is a next-generation polyester fabric that combines physical properties with high levels of functionality and quality. Thanks to its dense, flat-knit surface, Deltapeak is a multifunctional material that has been adopted by a range of sports-apparel brands. Deltapeak can be used as a high-performance material for a wide range of applications including casual, athleisure and more.
A newly developed wearable electrode cloth that integrates Japanese-style Nishijin brocade techniques and Teijin Frontier’s advanced production know-how will be exhibited. Another exhibit fusing traditional Japanese culture and state-of-art wearable sensing will showcase the piezoelectric wearable sensors developed by Kansai University and Teijin in the shapes of traditional Japanese-style kumihimo braded cords. Kimono accessories made by Ousyun Hasegawa, one of the leading kumihimo producers in Kyoto, Japan, also will be exhibited.
