Texon Inc., Hong Kong/China, announced it is working with Umbro, Manchester/UK, on an innovation in the design and manufacture of football boots. Umbro is integrating ProWeave – Texon’s jacquard weaving technology – into its speed silo for the season autumn / winter 2022.
ProWeave transforms the way performance fabrics are made and how they look, feel and function. Creating different elasticity, tenacity and abrasion zones within the same weave, ProWeave helps brands bring new creative concepts to life.
ProWeave is being used exclusively in the football boot sector by Umbro until 2023. Further details of Umbro’s football boots featuring ProWeave remain under wraps until Q3/2022.
