Gunold took the time for In-Depth Discussions


Textiles are increasingly used in different industries far from the clothing industry. The questions of trade show visitors about application and processing of embroidery supplies, confirm this new trend–GUNOLD’s experts welcomed visitors from the more traditional fashion industry but visitors from the automotive and building industry, from the medical engineering sector visited in increasing numbers.

Trade show visitors gathered information about the comprehensive range of Gunold’s embroidery supplies and were especially impressed by the hands-on demonstrations on the one head embroidery machine (ZSK) - textiles for the automotive sector such as floor mats, cockpit panels, leather seats or head restraints were being embroidered and at the same time Gunold’s experts explained what to especially look out for when embroidering different materials and fabrics.

The entire range of products was represented at the booth, including the unique range of embroidery threads, foils, backings, specialty fabrics, and auxiliary products. In particular, the embroidery viscose threads SULKY, the polyester threads POLY, the flame retardant thread POLY FIRE and the specialty “glow-in- the dark” threads FLOUR and GLOWY were in high demand. The comprehensive range of backings and specialty fabrics such as STEP ,Felty ,TWILLY or PUFFY and thus a variety of inspirations were also well received by trade show visitors. Adhesive sprays, needles, as well as scissors complemented the presentation of the various products. GUNOLD’s new seminar program for the 2nd half of 2015 is aimed once more at beginners and professionals and covers different topics - ranging from basic knowledge about materials, to professional expertise when digitizing and embroidering.

What else is new?

With their partially small but meaningful innovations, GUNOLD met the needs of many trade show visitors who were impressed by the presented products as these "are tuned to 100 percent to the requirements and needs of embroiderers”, a trade show visitors commented. Just to mention a few innovations: COTTY 30, now available in single 25g spools for each shade in the color card (cotton thread), a new addition to the range of embroidery needles, Z1, an all-purpose embroidery needle from ORGAN, “when the regular all-purpose needle is not enough”, available with extra small point (Q-ball) and sizes: 65, 75 and 90. The popular twill fabric TWILLY is now available on smaller rolls of 40cm x 3 m.

Gunold’s approach to the show not only offered solutions to existing problems but has also drawn the interest of many trade show visitors. "We had many interesting discussions and also got new ideas for the use of embroidery materials. It remains to be seen which of all these new ideas will be put into practice”, Stephan Gunold, Head of Marketing, comments rather excitedly.

To get into contact with new customers especially from companies in the field of technical textiles has been proofed to be true in any case and most enquiries reveal the potential use of the more traditional embroidery supplies in those new sectors. This development, although still in its infancy, will be approached by the GUNOLD team with increasing effort. Therefore Gunold is already planning to participate at the 4th Texprocess being held from May 9-12, 2017 in Frankfurt again.
