Eschler Introduces Bluesign and Ceramic Printing

Christian Eschler AG, known for yarns and knitted fabrics will show and explain Bluesign at Eurobike. For the 2008 – 2009 winter collection, Eschler is launching a new line of yarns manufactured either from recycled synthetic fibres or from renewable natural fibers, or fibres made from agricultural produce, like corn carbohydrates. 

The environment as a topic in textile production is gaining importance, as is the question of the end-of-life disposal of garments. Therefore, the leading yarn and textile manufacturers have their own industry standard; the Bluesign, in order to guarantee that manufacturing processes produce as little harmful substances as possible and also using all resources sparingly.

‘Ceramic printing’ is another innovation by Eschler. It is a polyurethane-based coating with ceramic particles that bring in the colours. The process is completely solvent-free, and the ceramic particles will always remain within the polyurethane coating, which means that the printed surface will never release any toxic substances. The fabric will win in wear resistance as much as up to 100%. Eschler’s space knit is being marketed as ‘the true soft shell tissue’. (OB)
