The Portuguese presence at Texpremium London came to an end yesterday, 19th June. In overall terms, the two days went well for the companies present, with both regular and new customers coming to the stands.

Taking part for the first time was Burel Factory with an extended collection in the Botanica by Burel Factory segment (natural dyeing), new colour blends in the Metro by Burel Factory seed and new hand paintings in the Abstract by Burel Factory segment. “We also presented the CHURRA collection, from the 2023 shearing at Miguel Chôco. All very much our own products, very Portuguese!” said CEO Isabel Costa.

“The day went very well, beyond our expectations,” said João Carvalho, Fitecom’s CEO, at the end of the first day. “We welcomed our main customers and some new ones, all of them carefully selected and who are allowing us to dream of an improvement for the end of this year,” he continued, speaking to T Jornal. “Next winter is going to be longer, we’re going to sell more, at least that’s what some of our big customers are saying and I want to believe that,” he added. The Covilhã company continues to explore the theme of sustainability with new hues in woollens, with a presence next week at Sodacstories in Paris.

6Dias also welcomed its regular customers and some new contacts, registering a busier second day. Troficolor Denim Markers made a similar comment. Ana Maria Magalhães, export sales manager, confirmed to T Jornal that they were visited by some customers with whom they are already doing business. “We also made new contacts with brands that are starting their projects. We hope that today will be a busier day!” The company from Trofa was on show with its new ECO DYEING concept, which significantly reduces water and energy consumption.

TMG Textiles spoke of a “lukewarm morning” offset by “a busier afternoon” on the first day. The fabric company made its debut at Texpremium London with the aim of reinforcing its strategy of offering sustainable and innovative articles, while focusing on a higher range of customers. On display was “a large group of articles with regenerative agriculture fibres and full traceability from fibre trace, as well as new classics with classic designs and constructions, but with high performance,” said Hélder Rosendo, business director.

Also taking part in the London event were Adalberto Textile Solutions, Bloomati by Carvema and Paulo de Oliveira.
