Web Exclusive | December 2014
This Christmas wear light, thanks to Karl Mayer
A red jacket, boots and hat may not make Santa Claus, but the outfit shown in the picture can still give us pleasure – and not just at Christmas time.
The lace in the stylish briefs for that special occasion was produced on an MT 51/1/ 32 machine. This multibar raschel Textronic® machine was successfully premiered in December 2013 in China, and was presented to industry professionals at ITMA ASIA + CITME in June 2014 in Shanghai for the first time. It has been a great success since then. With its exceptional speed and low initial outlay, the MT 51/1/32 has been setting new standards on the Textronic® Lace market for producing outer garments. The special configuration of the bars enables sections of the pattern featuring the typical, relief-like fall-plate effects of Textronic® lace to be produced in greater detail and with more complexity than ever before.
The new multibar Textronic® Lace processed nylon, viscose and elastane to produce a silky fabric with soft length elongation – for that special little surprise under the Christmas tree. The matt/shiny effects and clear, classic floral pattern create a festive look. At the side edges, the panel fabric has a decorative border made from tiny scallops. The lower edges also feature fringed scallops. These design elements can be used directly when designing the edges of dresses, collars and fashion tops.
