Setting trends on the net curtain market with Bourdon cord lace produced on the JL 65/1 B FASHION
Anyone searching for stylish home textiles needs to look no further than the wide range of products on offer from the Turkish textile sector. The fabrics produced in this country, which borders the Near East and Southern Europe, are characterised by their modern designs and exceptional quality.
One of the most creative and experienced among the many manufacturers is Lale Mefrusat. This company was set up in 1968 by Bülent Kocamaz to supply textiles in Istanbul. Over the years that followed, this entrepreneur expanded his company continuously and focused his production capacity on manufacturing premium products. Lale Mefrusat also concentrated on offering a wide range of products and rapidly changing collections. On an area of 33,000 m2, 16,000 m2 of it being the production area; 25 million m2 of high-end textiles are currently being produced every year for the clothing industry and home textiles sector. 70% of production is exported – mainly to Europe and America, as well as to the Near and Far East. The designers and textile developers in the company create between 300 and 350 new designs every six months.
Meeting customer requirements with the JL 65/1 B FASHION
To meet its strict quality requirements, Lale Mefrusat relies on using top-quality yarns and KARL MAYER’s high-speed raschel machines. The first machines produced in Germany were shipped to Istanbul in 1991. This innovative production technology was accompanied by the decision to specialise in the production of modern net curtains and stylish lingerie. In 2004, the plant was modernised by the acquisition of the JACQUARDTRONIC® Lace range of machines. Additional raschel machines, which were always state-of-the-art machines, followed. Lale Mefrusat’s proven strategy has always been to produce high-quality textiles with a modern look using state-of-the-art machines, and these principles still apply to this day. The company’s most recent investment has involved the acquisition of JACQUARDTRONIC® Lace machines, type JL 65/1 B FASHION, which were delivered at the end of last year.
Lale Mefrusat was recently showcasing its latest designs at Heimtextil 2016 in Frankfurt.
The JACQUARDTRONIC® fabrics produced by this manufacturer are following the current trend in the net curtain sector for all-over patterns featuring classic, romantic designs with opulent, bourdon cord liners. When speaking about the success of their collections, the Chief Executive, Levent Kocamaz, explained, “The lace fabrics, with their three-dimensional bourdon designs, are extremely popular amongst our customers. The feedback on the collection we were showing in Frankfurt was extremely promising. But we are also delighted at the high demand from the clothing sector, thanks to the continuing trend for using bourdon cord lace to create stylish dresses, skirts and blouses.”
The JL 65/1 B FASHION can process yarns having a count of up to 3,250 dtex, which means that this innovative lace raschel machine is able to exceed the usual limit of 1,500 dtex. The vein-like liners create structure in the surface and produce a fabric with a heavy drape.Back to overview
