Jiaxing's manufacturing prowess has once again been showcased on the global stage, this time at the Paris Olympics. The city's products, known for their quality and innovation, have become a staple at international events.

The athlete accommodations at the Olympic Village in Paris feature 3,000 lazy sofas from Rayri Hometextile (Jiaxing) Co Ltd, notable for their eco-friendly design. Made from recyclable sponge scraps and a waterproof, flame-resistant fabric, these sofas represent a breakthrough in combining safety and sustainability.

The development of these sofas was a complex task, balancing the contradictory needs of waterproofing and flame resistance. After extensive research and collaboration, Fei Zhongfu, chairman of Rayri Hometextile and his team innovated a new production process that integrated both features without compromise.

Meanwhile, Zhejiang Texwell Textile Co Ltd has developed eco-friendly and high-performance knitted fabrics for the Olympics. These fabrics offer moisture-wicking, quick-drying, and heat-retention properties, ensuring athlete comfort during competition. Texwell's commitment to sustainability is evident, with over half of their products made from recyclable materials.

The company's fabrics have been selected for various Olympic needs, including volunteer apparel and T-shirts for athletes and officials. Their dedication to R&D and partnerships with universities and sports brands like Decathlon, Anta, and Adidas has established them as a leader in sports fabric innovation.
