Established in 1992 in Corlu, Tekirdag, Entema has mainly focused on the manufacturing of special machinery for drying and finishing of variety of textile products.

Omer GOKCAN, a partner of the company, has informed that ENTEMA machinery exported successfully to several countries in South and North Africa, Middle East, Central Asia, Asia Pacific and Far East regions.

 

Machines that are sold under Swell Soft brand are developed and produced 100% domestically by using internationally protected patents and they can be used in the processing of several types of textile products such as towels, velvets, special, delicate textiles and other fabrics.

 

The development and the production of the machinery is supported with R&D incentives provided by Tubitak, the scientific and technological research authority in Turkey.

 

1-HAVLUSwell Soft machinery can process a wide range of fabric categories, including the lighter tulle, knitted or woven fabrics, velvets, draperies, imitative leathers, blankets, carpets made of all kinds of natural or synthetic fibers.

 

One of the early models of Swell Soft is the carpet finishing machinery that was installed in the factory of KARTAL Carpet, one of the major carpet manufacturer brands in Gaziantep in 2012 and it still serves flawlessly. Another one is sold to Erdenet Carpet company in Mongolia. Talks with companies in Belgium, Iran, Egypt, and China are continuing to sell machinery to buyers in the countries mentioned above.

Sustainable in many different ways: recycling at Trevira

Tags: , ,

On the 4th October 2017 a new brand was introduced at Trevira: Trevira SINFINECO®. This label may be carried by all textiles that contain sustainable Trevira products. Sustainable, innovative, high-value and responsible – these are the values the new brand stands for.As an industrial enterprise, Trevira is conscious of its special responsibility for an intact environment and has long advocated the recycling of valuable raw materials and waste products. Trevira CEO Klaus Holz: “We at Trevira wish to preserve the environment and at the same time work to create value. These are the criteria of our sustainability concept.“Creation of the new brand is therefore only a logical step, one that enables customers to label their sustainable Trevira products as such. Trevira is known for the high quality of its products. In every way recycled products are as good as the original materials in terms of quality and performance. Two vital elements in Pre-Consumer Recycling and an important concept in Post-Consumer Recycling form part of the sustainability strategy of Trevira to conserve resources and maintain value. h26 In the area of Pre-Consumer Recycling, on the one hand, residual materials resulting from the manufacture of polyester fibers and filaments in Bobingen and Guben, dependent on the manufacturing step, are processed in the agglomeration plant and restored to become serviceable primary material. The recyclates are then fed back to our fiber and filament spinning mills, to be made into new top-quality products. On the other hand, in fiber production there occurs in the manufacture of tow a small proportion of tow that cannot be used for converting and has to be cut out. Instead of selling this material as waste, it is cut up, pressed into balls and then carded / combed by a partner, resulting in a 1A quality product. The GRS certification (Global Recycled Standard) is requested for this. As with converter tow from new material, the recycled tow is mostly incorporated into polyester wool blends (55 % PET / 45 % wool), which are used primarily in corporate wear and uniforms. In the area of Post-Consumer Recycling, Trevira offers filament yarns consisting of 100 % recycled PET bottles. Our parent company Indorama manufactures very high quality recycled chips from PET bottles. Since only transparent PET bottles are used in Thailand, the flakes and chips are of a particularly good and very uniform quality. The recycled chips, fibers and filaments from Indorama bear the GRS certificates (Global Recycled Standard) and RCS-NL (Recycled Claim Standard). Trevira processes the regranulate made by Indorama from bottle flakes into filament yarns consisting 100 % of recycled material. The filament yarns are available in titres 167 and 76 dtex normal polyester. Alongside technical applications, they are used in the automotive and apparel sectors. In addition, many promising developments with the recycled material are on their way.

SPGPrints presents the flexibility and quality of its PIKE® and JAVELIN® digital textile printers at 2017 SGIA Expo

 

SPGPrints has recently displayed its comprehensive range of digital technologies and inks for textile printing at 2017 SGIA Expo, 10-12 October, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, New Orleans.

Featured were SPGPrints’ two leading digital textile printers, the PIKE® and the JAVELIN®. The JAVELIN is a multi-pass scanning head printer, available in print widths of 1850mm and 3200mm. It has an output of up to 367 linear meters per hour and offers an annual capacity of up to 2 million linear meters.

The PIKE printer is the ideal solution when a higher annual capacity is needed. PIKE is a single-pass, 1850mm-wide printer, operating at speeds of up to 40 linear meters per minute. Both JAVELIN and PIKE facilitate fast responsiveness when meeting demands for both short and longer production runs. Both printers use SPGPrints’ unique Archer® technology that is capable of firing variable drops (2-10pL) up to 4mm on to the substrate using Fujifilm Dimatix Samba print heads. This enables a very wide range of materials to be printed with the assurance of accurate fine lines, solid blotches, crisp geometrics and micro-florals. The variable drops mean that a wider color gamut can be achieved with a standard color set than with the high-definition gamut of other suppliers. The technology, with its higher color density, also contributes to higher ink yields, and thus lower ink consumption and better cost-efficiency.

PIKE and JAVELIN use tailor-made reactive inks, developed and manufactured by SPGPrints. Acid, sublimation and disperse inks are under development and will be released in the coming months. This enables use of these printers for fast-fashions, limited editions, couture fashion, swimwear, sportswear, and interior decor applications like bedding, curtains and soft furnishing, as well as soft-signage.

SPGPrints also makes a range of digital inks, including sublimation inks, for printers with Kyocera print heads. SPGPrints Nebula inks, developed to meet all Kyocera requirements, and manufactured at SPGPrints’ recently expanded 1000m2 ink facility in Boxmeer, deliver a high level of color quality, reliability and runnability to ensure optimal performance and uptime.

A global market leader and digital pioneer

SPGPrints introduced the first digital textile printer in 1986 and is in its fourth decade of innovation and production. SPGPrints printers and inks are designed to work as an end-to-end system. From software and ink, through to drying, each stage integrates with the whole to bring customers reliability, print quality and production efficiency.

SPGPrints America, Inc., is one of a global network of SPGPrints companies based in regional markets to ensure high levels of service, fast deliveries of consumables and timely support. Local market knowledge means that the company is able to provide consultancy services for specific applications, and advise on market strategy and supply chain management.

“Digital textile printing is a major challenge for many textile printers,” said Sangeeta Sachdev, managing director, SPGPrints America. “We are able to help printers and their customers understand the implications of the digital proposition and its benefits, to help them make the right investment decisions. Along with the demands of fast-fashion come the issues of streamlined logistics, just-in-time deliveries and profitability. With its global and local understanding of the world of textile printing, SPGPrints is ideally positioned to help customers make the move into digital production.

“At the same time, SPGPrints provides digital imaging solutions for screen printers, as well as a comprehensive range of screens to meet today’s demands for detail, durability and sustainability,” Sangeeta Sachdev concluded.

Nine exciting interior décor fall trends you don’t want to miss

 

Fall is a beautiful season! All the stunning colors nature presents us with, warm beverages and cozy nights in. It’s that time of the year we all start to spend more time indoors again. And who wouldn’t want the indoors to look as beautiful as ever?
Trends around this time tend to go through a complete renovation, although some elements from last seasons may remain. It’s that time of the year when everyone wants to update their wardrobes and their homes, getting it ready for the upcoming holiday season.

This year, the trends are all over the place. Marble continues to take stand and the colors and fabrics are very adapted to all the cozy needs this new season brings. Below is an interior décor interpretation by LUXXU, a reference brand not only in Luxury Lighting Design, but also in Quality and Innovation Furniture Design. LUXXU’s world is all about exclusivity and dedication, gathering the classic and modern design expressed in its high-quality materials.
A design not only to enjoy but also to live for! The nine fall trends:

lul11- MARBLE TABLES

As in the previous seasons, marble will continue to make a statement during the Fall. This time the trendiest items will be marble tables and countertops. If you’d like to hop on board with this trend a marble center table, as the Beyond, is a great option. It’s as beautiful as practical as it provides storage.

 

 

 

LU22- TEXTURE

During Fall, we all want to make our homes as cozy as possible. For this purpose, textures take a leading role, as fabrics can add great comfort to a home. A tufted chair in a rich fabric, such as velvet can add a lot of texture to an interior. Check the Charla Dining Chair and turn your dining room into the most fall ready room of the house. It’s also in a great fall color.

 

 

 

lu33- NAVY BLUE

A huge trend is using navy blue as a state- ment color. As it is a soothing color it looks good in every room, from the bathroom to the bedroom, from the kitchen to the office. It looks best with white, grey and gold. A gold pendant lamp like the Burj would make the blue pop!

 

 

 

 

lu44- METALLICS

Although this is not a new trend, just take a look at all the metallic clothing items out there, it will be a huge statement in the Fall! You can opt for hues, as the Draycott pendat lamps, or a full on interior in metal- lic tones, such as gold. The best part is that you can use it in any room of the house!

Even in the kitchen.

 

 

 

lu55- VELVET

As it was mentioned, Fall is the season for cozy fabrics! And what combines best coziness and style than velvet? A velvet stool such as the Noir is a great option, as it’s a subtle item that you can move around the house.

 

 

 

lu66- ENTERWAY STYLING

Entryways and foyers are a huge part of our homes! We don’t even realize how much it can say about us and our décor style. If you’d like to keep things fresh in this area, catch up with this trend and give your entryway the styling it deserves. Pen- dant lamps, as the Waterfall, can be a great choice as they give the most unique look. To make it fall ready you can add a fur rug and a few decorative items in fall colors.

 

 

 

lu77- GOLD LAMPS

Gold is a huge trend! But it’s not the easi- est color to incorporate in your home. Try to start small with a glamorous pendant lamp, as the Babel, or a side table. You can place it next to a comfy armchair by the fireplace and have a spot ready for all the fall reading sessions.

 

 

 

 

lu88- ROUND MIRRORS

These are not a new trend, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t as important. Round mirrors with a twist are especially on trend! They can add a touch of exclu- sivity to any interior setting and the best things about mirrors is that they are as practical as they are beautiful. The Darian Mirror, with subtle hints of gold is an amaz- ing choice.

 

 

 

 

lu99- JEWEL TONS

One of the biggest trends for the next season are jewel tones! Emerald green, rich purples and reds. It’s one of the most luxurious trends but use it carefully as it may overwhelm the room you put it in. A great color pairing with emerald green is black and gold. The Waterfall Round sus- pension is a great choice!

Make your home Fall ready with these new trends!

LC Waikiki, local proud of Turkey, launches Home brand

 

 

LC Waikiki, a leading apparel brand in Turkey, now adds to its stores a new brand for home textiles.

 

Known as a major apparel brand LC Waikiki decided to sell home textile products in its wide network of retail stores. Collection and Buying Manager of the brand Ummuhan San says that they have special products for every age groups and sex. She informed us about their new move and the collection they prepared under Disney license for Car movie.

 

lcw4How was born LCW Home brand? Was there any gap in home textiles field or did you want to reflect your energy in this segment as well?

Both reasons are valid for our decision. We are a family brand working under the motto of “Everybody deserves to dress well” to respond to all their needs of family members. We have been receiving demand for home textiles besides their other needs for some time. In short, our customer demanded and we responded.

What products are covered in this line? Are all products made in your facilities?

Mainly, the category covers all spaces from kitchen to bath and to living rooms. Since the brand is so new, it now covers more than 400 varieties. All are aimed to certain age groups, adults, kids and babies, every item for bedrooms are in the line, including bed linens, blankets, pillows, quilts, etc.

For bathrooms, there are bathrobes, towels, and slippers. Floor mats and carpets for halls; pillow case, candles, odors and cologne are for decorations. In kitchen group are table cloth, place mats, gloves and accessories.

While planning the collection and the categories we started with this question: what are their needs? All of the products are produced in Turkey. We emphasize on domestic production because Turkey has a great power and potential in this field, a deep experience, an experienced suppliers base. We did not want to spend our capital in other countries. Every item sold in LC Waikiki stores under Home brand are 100 % made in Turkey.

 

lcw2Health is a major consideration in the materials and in the products. What are your priorities and sensitivities in this regard?

LC Waikiki brand have made all of the products produced under strict rules for health and safety. We have test laboratories in Turkey, China and Bangladesh where all products are tested. Besides, extra safety is observed for kids and baby products. We have delicate safety measures, such as the distance between buttons of bed linens for safety of the baby. They should not allow the passage of baby’s head in it. Besides, products should not have any hazardous accessories yarns, or beads that might be swollen.

 

How many stores do you have in abroad, in which regions and what are your targets?

Presently we have 786 stores in the country and abroad. LCW Home products are located as corners in 56 domestic LC Waikiki stores and in 14 countries. Kazakhstan was the first market we entered, followed by East European countries, Rumania, Bulgaria, Kosova, Serbia, Poland, Azerbaijan and Iran. We aimed to present Home brand at all stores of LCW.

 

Do you keep the same scheme all other stores, or you will develop a separate store concept?

Actually, both ways are in their experimental phase. We want to use present traffic of customers, because we have large scale of loyal customers. We thought that this strategy is right and we were right. We opened an experimental store in Eminonu unit. We will decide on our way upon the results of this study.

 

lcw3What were the responses of customers?

At the beginning they were shocked. There was no promotion, or media activity in the launch of the brand. From the first sales in 1 September 2016, a group of loyal customers was accumulated for Home brand. They are happy, and respond positively. We offered women an additional shopping space following their apparel shopping.

 

How do you follow trends?

All of our designs are developed by our design team. Besides this team of designers, we have special designers who work on graphic and motifs for Home brand products. As a global firm, we need to know what happens in the world. Watching domestic trends only is not sufficient. We participate in certain fairs and keep watching digital platforms.

 

What do you want to add more?

We have categories such as cologne, room and auto perfumes, etc. in home cosmetics field. All these products have passed the serious tests and are made 100 % in Turkey. We deal with several major suppliers, who test all products for chemical safety and their effects on health.

We signed a deal for Disney characters; they are liked by the customers. In June, Cars movie was in the vision. We have prepared a special commercial in line with this movie that is now running to promote our Home line.
