Schoeller: cooperation with Südwolle Group

The coldblack technology by textile producer Schoeller Textil AG, Sevelen/Switzerland, has been specifically optimized for use on knitted and woven fabrics so brands can now expand their product application uses. Under the sun, textiles with coldblack heat up less and stay cool to the touch. The manufacturer of worsted products Südwolle Group, Nuremberg/Germany, has also recognized the ideal combination of merino and coldblack.
coldblack technology from Schoeller supports the natural properties of wool which already has lower heat build-up, and reliably reduces this even more when exposed to the sun. Together with the help of Südwolle Group, the finish has been optimized specifically for the use in merino apparel. The yarn manufacturer chooses coldblack for a variety of uses, especially for knitting and weaving yarns for sports and outdoor apparel and develops such products individually according to its customers’ requirements.

Partnerships between technology suppliers and textile manufacturers have become an essential component in providing solutions to the needs of fast-fashion and increasingly more significant e-commerce retail channels. Alessandro Zucchi, president of the Association of Italian Textile Machinery Manufacturers (ACIMIT), Milan/Italy, reiterated the inevitability of the digitalization process regarding the entire textile industry while presenting the latest figures for the sector for 2017.

In 2017, production of Italian textile machinery rose by 8%, for a value of €2.4 billion, while exports grew by 7% (€2 billion). Production benefitted from a growing demand abroad, as well as the crucial recovery of Italy’s domestic market, mainly due to the boost generated by the fiscal incentives for the digitalization process of the companies.
