Karachi, Pakistan – April 7, 2015 – Artistic Fabric Mills (AFM) is proud to announce a collection of stretch denim fabrics that offer high elasticity and superior recovery tested to guarantee <3% growth. The range of super stretch fabrics is a culmination of fiber and yarn research breakthroughs in the last 10 years. Designers can now freely explore new silhouettes ranging from denim leggings and activewear styles to shapewear without fear of garments losing shape.
Growth control is a feature in fabrics that can hold their shape after stretching. Without this jeans often develop unattractive bulges in the knee and waistband after multiple wearing. In its state of the art spinning facility AFM has developed multiple growth control technologies that offer exciting new levels of stretch. The selection of <3% low growth fabrics come in various weights and shades as well as popular fiber technologies like Invista DualFX ™, Lycra Beauty ™, and CoolMax ™.
The new Shapeform fabrics are available in all denim shades including indigo, black and grey. Some of the more luscious options feature Invista Lycra Beauty ™ and Lenzing Tencel ™. The full collection will be unveiled at Denim Premiere Vision Barcelona, the industry’s leading tradeshow in Europe. To view the collection clients are invited to contact their AFM representatives and visit the AFM exhibition booth at Denim Premiere Vision.
“The denim industry thrives on innovation and AFM has always been on the forefront of pushing the boundary of what is possible,” says Hasan Javed, Director of Artistic Fabric Mills. “Fabrics with higher elongation percentages provide amazing movement and comfort but, if not engineered carefully, can result in jeans becoming misshapen after prolonged wearing. Our <3% low growth fabrics address this issue while offering superior stretch performance even at over 100% stretch. We are excited to see how these new fabrics will empower designers to pursue their design goals.”
To view the collection clients are invited to contact their AFM representatives and visit the AFM exhibition booths at the following tradeshows: Kingpins Amsterdam, Denim by Premiere Vision (Barcelona), and Kingpins New York.
