French fabrics to be unveiled at the London Textile Fair 2013

04.01.2013
For the second consecutive time, there will be a French Pavilion at the London Textile Fair on 23 and 24 January 2013.

The Pavilion is organised by Tisslaine France Promotion, France's national trade association for the textile industry, and is supported by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in London. In January 2013, there will be 17 exhibitors on the French Pavilion, against 10 at the fair before.

The diverse French offer at the London Textile Fair will not only present a wide range of textiles — including wool, cotton, viscose, linen, silk and blends with synthetic fibres in various price ranges — from weavers, knitters and printers, but also clothing-accessory manufacturers such as SATAB RUBANS and design studios such as CREATIONS ROBERT VERNET.

The spring-summer 2014 collection (S/S 14) will feature hybrids and blends, whose features will be expressed through colours, textures and patterns. This season will explore the parallels between nature and human creation, where colour will reflect the range of natural light, from dawn to dusk.

Notable textures will range from the extra smooth to the coarse and granular. Designs and decorations will be varied, where geometric patterns will feature alongside natural materials.

Britain is the fifth largest export market for the French textile sector (2012 figures). Exports of textile goods to the UK reached €291 million in value within the first eight months of 2012 alone.

The 17 companies that will unveil their S/S 14 collections on the French Pavilion from 23 to 24 January 2013 are listed below; further details can be provided upon request.

AB CREATIONS/FABIEN DOLIGEZ

AB CREATIONS/FABIEN DOLIGEZ has two collections: Fabien Doligez and Opening. The former is a collection of plain and fancy weaves; the latter is a Jacquard collection. Opening has a six-to-eight-week lead time for a small quantity of 150 m/col.

Im Focus: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
