Selvedge denim from alternative and high-tech fibers are featured along with a wide range of new fabrics that US Denim is launching at Kingpins Amsterdam.
The HeritEdge+ textiles deliver the authentic look of selvedge while adding the comfort and performance the market now demands.
As part of its HeritEdge+ collection, US Denim is utilizing its prized antique selvedge looms, and partnering with INVISTA to create new bi-stretch selvedge fabrics incorporating LYCRA® XFIT technology in the warp for flexibility. The result is a tough but elegant and comfortable short-width fabric with controlled shrinkage, low growth, great recovery and excellent shape retention.
Heritage+ with LYCRA® XFIT technology also delivers higher cutting efficiency as well as easier handling and better control during garment production.
Other selvedge denim innovations that US Denim premiers at Kingpins include a range of HeritEdge+ fabrics with intelligent fiber for temperature regulation, with wool for warmth, and with Reprieve upcycled fiber for more sustainable production.
