The Fashion Division of the RUDOLF GROUP unveiled the laser-ready denim fabrics
Also HUB 1922 joined the third edition of Kingpins Show in Amsterdam.
International partner when it comes to the R&D and marketing of innovative and sustainable solutions for garment finishing, the Fashion Division of the RUDOLF GROUP unveiled the advancement that propels the denim industry to a 2.0 level: laser-ready denim fabrics.
Local abrasion on denim always provides character and personality to the items, but over the years some of the techniques used to create local abrasion, such as brushing, sandblasting and chemical spray, have been banned or are highly questioned. Today, laser burning has taken a very central role and it’s being increasingly adopted worldwide. But Hub 1922 did something more.
Through the application of Rudolf Laser Primer, manufacturers can now make the most of laser machines’ magic. That is either through the creation of significantly enhanced aesthetics on indigo and sulphur dyes, or the achievement of important energy savings. The industrial process that returns laser- ready fabrics has been studied and perfected in terms of laser advancing effect, minimization of fiber damage and pH value of the fabric.
“This breakthrough innovation is a first and required 8 months of very intensive and multi-disciplinary work, with key customers in 2 continents” says Alberto De Conti, Head of Rudolf Fashion Division. “It was mainly about applying science through a beginner eye and encouraging teams to learn from each other”.
