Source of inspiration for Indian clothing

Delicately patterned fabrics produced on the RSJ 4/1 machine open up completely new design options.

The Indian textile industry is increasingly focusing on synthetic fibres. With an output of 2,511 million kg in the period from 2015 to 2016, the formerly typical cotton country has meanwhile become the second largest manufacturer of synthetic fibres and yarns worldwide.

By processing versatile polymer-based yarn materials, warp knitting is greatly on the rise. In particular when manufacturing lavish lace articles and light, patterned apparel fabrics, the Indian warp knitting mills are setting new trends by using modern Raschel machines and creative ideas. Karl Mayer can provide the Indian companies with both inspiration and high-tech machines. Especially for the production of traditional Indian sarees but also of upbeat fashion styles, this innovative textile machinery specialist can offer its RASCHELTRONIC® machine. What can be done with this equipment shows a collection of sophisticated clothing fabrics made by Karl Mayer’s own product developers. “Especially for the Indian apparel market we have developed rigid RASCHELTRONIC® articles with a lace-like, filigree design and country-specific motifs”, explained Stefan Gross from Karl Mayer’s creative section.

Examples are the all-over designs presented on this page. They show typical Indian ornamental and Paisley patterns in a fashionable, modern style. The traditional Indian style elements have been combined with flowers and leaf tendrils, and they have been placed on transparent, diversely structured fabric grounds.

When producing the warp-knitted articles, the RASCHELTRONIC® was equipped with one ground guide bar and the Jacquard bar. Both knitting elements processed polyamide, a material which ensures a soft, silky touch and, thus, a pleasant wearing comfort on the skin. However, the fabric not only impresses with its look and feel, but also with its extremely high production efficiency. The RSJ 4/1 in a gauge of E 28 used for this purpose, operates at a rotational speed of up to 1,450 min-1.
