Freudenberg adds greener interlinings

August 30, 2011

The new offering is made from recycled polyester.

Freudenberg has developed new fusible interlinings made from recycled polyester fibers. Not only are they softer, easier to handle and more elastic than competing woven polyester products, they are also 20% lighter and feature the same technical characteristics. The products respond to the clothing industry’s need for intelligent raw material utilization and a more efficient production process to create substantial technical and cost advantages.

“Soft, natural support, elastic, and eco-friendly,” are the interlinings' core attributes summarized by Ulrich Scherbel, Freudenberg’s director of business development menswear and business segment leader for interlining Europe.
Création Gross, one of the most progressive men’s wear companies in Germany, is testing out the new technology as Freudenberg’s exclusive partner for utilization and marketing. At the upcoming Munich Fabric Start exhibition, Création Gross and Freudenberg will be exhibiting Freudenberg’s new generation for interlinings with samples from the current collection.
