Jacquard spacer fabrics

High-level jacquard spacer fabric with flexible design possibilities using new technology of KARL MAYER

Our innovative Jacquard Technology add design values to spacer fabric and expand the potential of creativity.

KARL MAYER`s successfull Jacquard spacer technology is optimized for broad range of applications in worldwide markets. Taking an advantage of this technology, design possibilities expand the limit of spacer fabric. Any sized mesh structures can be freely arranged in desired positions and manifold patterns by jacquard technology are created on the fabric surface.

In order to adapt the demands of markets, jacquard patterning technology expands the possibilities of spacer fabrics and achieves high level products. These technical growth contribute to promote jacquard spacer fabrics to the textile industry.



Potential of Double Needle Bar Jacquard fabrics

Shoe industry is the biggest driver of the Jacquard spacer fabric market, due to its high comfort, light weight and breathability, and increasing demand for engineered mesh. By further technology of Jacqurad spacer, such is clear two color double layer, counter lapping technology (RDJ 6/1 EN) make market field also for outerwear, mattress and automotive fabric.
