MAS to show latest fabric for swimwear at Interfiliere

Sri Lanka-based MAS Fabrics is set to showcase their latest line of fabric and trim solutions for intimate apparel and swimwear products at Interfiliere 2013 (Stall S39).

Given the complex construction of the garments and the number of components essential in the manufacturing process (e.g. a bra has over 30 components), MAS Fabrics presents a unique value proposition with its one-stop-shop solution for requirements across lace, fabrics, elastics, moulded cups and accessories.

20130719 1In today’s fast fashion and online shopping revolution, MAS Fabrics’ capability to offer reduced cycle times and coordinated digital colour management to lingerie and swimwear brands across their full raw material need is particularly timely.

The challenges of balancing low inventories and minimal mark-downs with a ‘never out of stock’ policy means that having a single source of innovation for every component of the garment and a shared manufacturing solution that operates a speed to market model, is critical if leading retail brands are to retain market share.

Mr. Timothy Speldewinde, Head of MAS Fabrics, Sri Lanka said, “As the world’s only complete raw material solution provider to the intimate and swimwear apparel sectors, Interfiliere is the ideal platform to showcase how we at MAS Fabrics bring together the innovation and manufacturing excellence of six best in class companies across fabric, elastics, bra cups, lace, accessories and printing.
