"… This club is a very important platform for technical talents to enlarge their capabilities in pattern design and manufacturing skills and to go on to perform as top experts in the clothing industry."
As the first market player in Europe, the Apparel Business Unit launches an online shop with a comprehensive range of interlinings, tapes, canvas and preformed materials, linings and comfortemp® thermal insulation for the apparel industry.
2,000 different products available from the online range
Customers can choose from more than 2,000 different products ranging from bonding solutions up to the recycling range. A clear structure by groups makes finding the right product easier: ladies’ and men’s wear, sportswear, outdoor and work clothes, shirts, jeans and leather as well as special ranges for the production of accessories, for appliqués or embroidery.
Access with and without registration
In addition to their customer account for address and purchase order management, registered users have full access to detailed product information as well as technical data sheets in PDF format available for download. Individually selected preferred delivery dates or a wish list round off the online experience. But the online shop is also available without login – in catalogue format for full product search and information across the entire range. An application-oriented menu structure and detailed filter functions help customers during their search and guide them on their way to the selection of the desired product. Pictures with zoom function show the thickness, structure, strength and drape of the product and how it can be fused. The contact form allows customers to send a request for quotation – as long as they do not have their own access.
The online shop can be reached at https://shop.freudenberg-apparel.com
Freudenberg Active Range
The Freudenberg Active Range includes highly elastic outer fabrics that keep their flexibility and breathability even when the interlining is fused. This is ensured by a special technology by which the adhesive is applied to a carrier material in the form of small dots without a basis material.
For outer fabrics on which fusing is not possible, the Active Range sewable interlinings ensure a handfeel that is natural and elastic at the same time and keep the garment in the desired shape.
Furthermore, most of these products consist of at least 70 per cent recycled polyester.
This first adaptive thermal insulation made of a warming and breathable padding with elastic reinforcement elements is a hybrid revolution for insulation: comfortemp® FLEXX combines lightweight voluminous nonwovens with warp knit technology.
When stretched, comfortemp® FLEXX is thin, extremely air-permeable and breathable. Even when the wearer stops moving, the material still fulfills all the requirements of high-performance thermal insulation for sports and outdoor clothing and keeps the wearer warm even when wet.
comfortemp® FLEXX is made with 95% recycled polyester, is extremely durable and compliant with the OEKO-TEX standard.
