NILIT and TIBA Win ISPO Textrends Top 10 Award


ISPO MUNICH, January 28-31, 2018

Migdal Haemek, Israel—December 20, 2017 — NILIT, a leading global manufacturer and marketer of premium Nylon 6.6, and Tiba Tricot, an innovative Italian manufacturer of knitted fabrics for a variety of applications, have been awarded an ISPO Textrends Top 10 in the Base Layer Category. The award-winning fabric combines the unique softness and athletic performance benefits of Sensil® Innergy premium Nylon 6.6 with Tiba’s outstanding knitting and fabric design skills. The fabric is perfect for base layer applications because it is ultra-light and exquisitely soft against the skin. Plus, Sensil® Innergy gently reflects energy back to the body to warm and invigorate muscles for improved athletic performance and recovery as well as to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

“We are so happy that this very special fabric made by our longtime partner, Tiba Tricot, has been recognized with this prestigious honor,” says Pierluigi Berardi, NILIT Global Marketing Director. “This remarkable fabric shows what can be created when our premium Nylon 6.6 yarns connect with talented designers and state-of-the-art fabric manufacturing capabilities.”

“The finest fabrics start with the best fibers like Sensil® Innergy,” says Giovanni Brugnoli at Tiba. “With its special FIR technology, Sensil® Innergy infuses fabrics with superior comfort, outstanding performance, and unique benefits.”

Designed for people who value quality over quantity and require their products to always exceed expectations, the Sensil® Innergy/Tiba fabric also boasts beautiful drape, increased durability, and the added features of UV protection and odor-resistance. The fabric is a true multitasker, just like today’s busy consumers. Base layer garments made with this incredible fabric will answer the market’s call for value-added benefits, incredible comfort, and noteworthy design.

Sensil® was created in response to evolving consumer attitudes and rapidly shifting retail shopping trends and, with its launch, immediately elevated the quality standard for Nylon 6.6. Sensil® represents NILIT’s new way to convey the many benefits of its premium Nylon 6.6 products to the market and to consumers looking for beautiful fabrics like Tiba’s that surpass their high expectations for value, performance, and quality.
