The Mills Remembers Hong Kong’s Textile Past and Promotes Its Future

HONG KONG — Like a lot of children who grow up in magnate families, Vanessa Cheung wasn’t so sure she wanted to work for the family business.
Cheung’s grandfather, Chen Din Hwa, founded Nan Fung Group as a textiles business in 1954. It was the days before Mainland China had opened up as an option for global manufacturing and Chen’s business grew quickly, earning him a place in the billionaires’ club and the nickname the “king of cotton yarn.” At its textiles operations height, Nan Fung employed more than 3,000 people to operate in their mills, producing up to 32.5 million pounds of yarn a year.
But the industry migrated across the border into China proper in the Eighties — lured by cheap labor and other costs at a fraction of the price — and Nan Fung shifted gears, focusing instead on developing a property empire across East Asia. The textiles operations faded away and by the time Cheung, who had embarked on a career as a landscape architect, was convinced to join Nan Fung, three of the former six mills the company owned had been turned into residential units, and the other three simply were used as warehouse space.
It was those three

Traceable Supply Chain Is Key for Italian Textile Companies

MILAN — Raising the bar on sustainability should be the main goal of the Italian textile business is what emerged from the press conference opening the 27th edition of Milano Unica, which closed here on Thursday. In line with the same edition last year, about 6,000 fashion companies attended the fair, which registered an increase of international buyers, especially from Holland, the U.S., Japan, China, France and Germany.
“Sustainability has been treated as a marketing tool, but it’s time to put the focus on what the Italian companies have done so far and it’s time to put the accent on the sustainable approach of the whole supply chain,” said Andrea Crespi, president of the Italian fashion chamber’s sustainability committee.
The Italian textile compartment’s leadership in terms of sustainability is a fact, according to Sistema Moda Italia president Marino Vago, who revealed that “an executive from a French major luxury brand admitted that our textile companies have a five-year competitive advantage on our competitors.”
The main issue is to guarantee the traceability of the raw materials, according to Milano Unica president Ercole Botto Poala. “Technology and the digitalization can be instrumental in the development of this process,” he said, adding that despite the new

Tollegno 1900 Digitalizes Its Textile Archives

TOLLEGNO, Italy — How do you count experience? Some people count it in years, others in deeds.
Italian textile company Tollegno 1900 combined both engaging in a significant work of conservation, classification and enhancement of its heritage and expertise in the production of yarns and fabrics.
In particular, since 2010, the firm has implemented a dedicated area in his factory in Tollegno, in the Italian region of Piedmont, to create an archive of all the textiles, documents, packing lists and studies on yarns produced and collected from the end of the 19th century to nowadays.
As a further step, this year the company has decided to transpose the more than 1.24 miles of documentations archived so far digitally.
“In the future, we would like to put our archive online and make it accessible to everybody,” said Lincoln Germanetti, chief executive officer of Tollegno Holding, comprising Tollegno 1900 SpA and Manifattura di Valduggia SpA, which controls the Ragno, Julipet and Riabella brands.
The executive didn’t reveal when this long-term project could be effective, but the company has already digitalized half of its current archive, including 800 books of samples and technical charts and more than 10,000 wool samples.
This operation enables the firm to easily track every item, create data crossroads

London’s Fashion and Textile Museum Mounts Louise Dahl-Wolfe Exhibition

THE WOMEN’S ROOM: London’s Fashion and Textile Museum is set to unveil a showcase of American fashion photographer Louise Dahl-Wolfe. More than 100 images from the Thirties to the Fifties will be on show, and the focus is on the contemporary independent female. Among Dahl-Wolfe’s subjects are Coco Chanel and Madeleine Vionnet as well as the Hollywood stars Bette Davis and Veronica Lake.
“She was a great colorist, and had an understanding of the female form and how it related to clothing,” said Dennis Nothdruft, head of the Fashion and Textile Museum, adding that the show is aimed at “rediscovering and promoting what she did — which was very influential.” He said Dahl-Wolfe isn’t as famous in Europe as she is in the U.S., noting that “people like Avedon and Irving Penn really follow on from what Louise Dahl-Wolfe did at Harper’s Bazaar.”
Born in San Francisco in 1895, Dahl-Wolfe started her career in 1923. She graduated from San Francisco Institute of Art, then moved to New York, opening her photography studio there. She shot for Saks Fifth Avenue and Bonwit Teller before taking up a staff photographer role at Harper’s Bazaar from 1936 to 1958.
She worked with editor Carmel Snow, fashion

Robert L. Wells, Longtime Textile Executive, Dead at 90

NEW YORK — Robert L. Wells, former president and owner of textile sales agency European Textile Trading Corp., died Jan. 18 in Palm Beach, Fla., according to his son, George. He was 90.
George Wells said his father helped Ralph Lauren source hand-printed wool challis fabrics from Switzerland in the early years before the Polo Ralph Lauren brand began. He also was instrumental in supplying Halston with matte jersey for some of the designer’s iconic styles.
In addition, Wells, who went by Bob, was among the first to bring Loden cloth from Austria into the U.S. market. Loden would go on to be featured by many classic men’s wear labels.
Wells recalled how his father’s easygoing manner and positive attitude within a hectic industry made him stand out among his peers.
“He was a trailblazer in the textile field and evolved the business with extensive travels to various mills in the years well in advance of Interstoff Germany and Première Vision in Paris,” said Wells, who succeeded his father as owner of the company in the mid-Eighties.
The company has been in operation for more than 50 years and was founded by Robert Wells’ uncle, Alfred, in 1936.
Born in 1936 in Waterbury, Conn., Wells enlisted in

Hybrid Yarns and Textile Preforming for Thermoplastic Composites

Hybrid Yarns and Textile Preforming for Thermoplastic Composites


The Textile Progress monograph series provides a critical and comprehensive examination of the origination and application of developments in the textile industry and its products. This issue reviews developments in Polymer composites which are increasingly gaining importance as substitute materials for metals in the aerospace, automotive, marine, sporting goods and electronic industries. In past decades, fiber-reinforced composite materials were principally fabricated using thermosetting matrices, with all the associated disadvantages (eg brittleness, lengthy cure cycles and inability to recycle damaged or scrapped parts). Such intrinsic problems have led to the recent development of the thermoplastic matrix composite system, which provides several advantages in terms of mechanical properties and processing. This monograph covers the characterization of hybrid yarns, their structure and properties, and details various types of preforming in the context of the major textile manufacturing techniques (weaving, braiding, knitting etc.).These are described in relation to the practical application of thermoplastic materials in applications within the transport, manufacturing and medical sectors.
