Niggeler & Küpfer Textile Spa group has recently integrated recognised fabric brands Algitex, Principio Attivo and La Panamà, and the line of basic fabrics Sand, into the group.

NKT group has been operating since 1876 in Northern Italy, near Brescia. Thanks to this acquisition, NKT is reinforcing its portfolio in the apparel segment, which already includes greige fabrics, yarns and finishing, and control of productive sites in Italy and Tunisia.

Algitex offer feminine fabrics characterised by precious fine and elaborate manufacturing techniques; Principio Attivo focus on elaborate fabrics aimed at fashion-addicted consumers, thanks to a sophisticated and technically advanced fabric selection; La Panamà is a brand of urban and casual fabrics aimed at male consumers; and Sand offer high-quality cotton basic fabrics.

Among the newest products presented during the last edition of Premiere Vision for S/S 2015 is an impressive selection of golden and silver jacquard fabrics by Principio Attivo (see photograph).
