BY ANTONIO ALMEIDA & FULHOS, TEXTEIS S.A.

Special Interview with Mr. Pedro Faria,
Sales Manager of Tearfil

SHARING YOUR LIFE
2009 Winter

Muratec participated in the "EXPOFIL 2009", one of the most historic international textile trade shows held in Paris. This time, in addition to introducing samples of many products made with VORTEX yarn, we also explained the technology as well as the originality of VORTEX spinning, which would be a key to developing differentiated products, to the visitors in an effort to provide support to VORTEX Partners' business.

We interviewed Mr. Pedro Faria, Sales Manager of Tearfil, which attended at the Expofil A.W.2009 (Sep.15 - 18, 2009, Paris, France), for the results and the market trend obtained from the exhibition.

Mr. Pedro Faria

Mr. Pedro Faria
Sales Manager of Tearfil

At first, please give us a brief introduction of your company.
Mr. Faria
Tearfil is a modern and proactive company with advanced technical equipment and know how, which enables it to become more competitive and differentiated in an increasingly demanding and selective market, as well as take over the strategic partner role of its customers and suppliers.
What did you think about EXPOFIL generally?
Mr. Faria
Expofil is "the" exhibition for creativeness and high value fashion yarns. Being together with Primier Vision makes it all happen in the same "saloon".
At Expofil we manage to give and receive valuable information on trends and materials. As Tearfil being a "trend setter" company, we were presenting our novelties for SS2011.
Expofil is changing.
We are finding less and less curious visitors and more and more professional and business visitors. This edition we had more visitors from USA, Canada and Brasil, compared with the previous ones.
This means that customers from all over the world are looking for high value and differentiated products.

What is the reputation of VORTEX products?
Mr. Faria
With VORTEX we can produce fabrics with extremely low pilling, and yet maintain softness and feel similar to ring spun.
Cellulosic fibers are known for their silky feel as they are for their pilling issues. Therefore our VORTEX yarn collection is predominantly focused on cellulosic fibers at 100% and blended with fine wool and Silk.
VORTEX is becoming more popular with manufacturers. The benefits of VORTEX spinning are well appreciated and because of that the products are having a fast penetration in the market.
pluma - Tearfil Spun Yarn

Pluma is a spun yarn developed and optimized by Tearfil.
It has low hairiness and a lasting smooth feeling.

Please let us know your expectation for VORTEX yarn in near future.
Mr. Faria
Tearfil produces high value yarns for fashion and technical applications. With innovative mixtures of cellulosic and natural fibers we have obtained products with hybrid characteristics, getting the best out of each finer.
VORTEX is the perfect partner for cellulosic fibers and will have a major role in our yarn mixtures enhancing the fiber properties and helping us to achieve the best products for the best fibers.
