DESIGN NAME:
TIMELESS by RKF

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Innovative Fabric for Original Bathrobes

INSPIRATION:
RKF creates luxury linen for hotels and spas. We are a french company known worldwide for our custom-made know-how and the softness of our products. We always aim to help our customers. TIMELESS is a multi-solution offer developed for its technical advantages. Its specific look was a bonus due to its technicity. We've designed the trench-coat bathrobe for our 2016 muse, the french singer Aelle. The annual theme is "HoneyMoon in Paris". So we wanted a parisian girl's look and attitude.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
It's a new exclusive range. Patent pending. The main technical advantages are : An eco-friendly fabric (Up to 70% savings on the laundry cost comparing to a classic Terry). It's comfortable (High Absorption performance). And it has a really long lifetime. The fabric has also a specific look. It fits well the body and it's iron-free. We design original bathrobes with it, especially one who looks like a trench-coat. The goal is to offer efficient and good-looking bathrobes for spas and hotels.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
We have different steps and tests to have this result. The full process is patent pending. All the details were checked by Intertek laboratories.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
We started the research in 2014 after the launch of our famous fabric called DreamSoft. The fabric was ready in December 2015. It tooks 2 weeks to design and sew the trench-coat bathrobe. The TIMELESS fabric was officially launched the 28th February in London for the Professional Beauty fair : the leading beauty and spa trade show in Europe as well as largest in the UK.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
This is the result of different tests aiming to have the most absorbent and hard-wearing fabric. It's made with two different polyester knitted fabrics glued together by ultrasonic heat. The result is a unique honeycomb stitch-like fabric but with more advantages certified by Intertek tests.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The fabric width is maximum 167 cm. To make the trench-coat in EU size 38, we need 2 meters of the fabric.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The main aim was to design a fabric more absorbent and resistant. The main technical advantages for the customers are : - ECO FRIENDLY : Up to 70% savings on the laundry cost comparing to a classic Terry. - COMFORT : 5 times more absorbent than a classic Terry. - LIFE SPAN : 17 times higher than a classic Terry. And thanks to its lightness, its iron-free advantage and its unique look, we are able to design easily elegant bathrobes. The fabric is easy to sew. We've designed the trench-coat bathrobe for our 2016 muse, the french singer Aelle. The annual theme is "HoneyMoon in Paris". So we wanted a parisian girl's look and attitude. This is really different in the spa and hospitality's garments' industry : a fashionable philosophy, a french couture attitude.

CHALLENGE:
The first challenge was a technical one. Our fabric called DreamSoft and launched in 2014 is well-known. It mades RKF's worlwide success, especially for comfortable bathrobes and massage tables' set-up. With this new fabric, we wanted to go further. But the real challenge is to create different bathrobes. We design custom-made products for luxury hotels and spas. The customers deserve the best in every details : services, beds, food, interior decoration,... As a supplier, we need to offer high quality products and especially bathrobes in which people feels good and beautiful. With TIMELESS, an Innovative Fabric for Original Bathrobes, the trench-coat bathrobe embodies the first step of this creative challenge. We will design a full collection.
