Founded in 1903, Tejidos Royo has produced been a leader in Europe’s textile sector for more than a century. Its two production facilities in Valencia, Spain produce fabrics exported to customers in more than 30 countries.

Royo has announced its new Suave capsule collection for Spring/Summer 2018, developed with TENCEL® fiber. Suave Capsule SS18 includes fabrics of 100% TENCEL®, as well as new blends with linen that for a special level of elegance and comfort. Royo draws in the past and the future to the present, with its tagline: “Looking at the past with eyes of the future.”

Royo calls denim the “protagonist” of the collection, its versatility aided by TENCEL®, in colors from baby blue to black, and indigo in between. The collection takes its cues from three fashion trends, which Royo describes as “Marine Soul” inspired by nautical explorers, ship sails and sailor knots; “Adventure Dream” touched by the unique romanticism of pioneering women; and “Wild Life” with a wild, Latin sensibility brought by tropical prints and exuberant summery color.

This is another iteration of denim, where the ability of lightweight fabrics to flow contradicts their strength, something that Jose Rafael Royo, Shareholder, attributes to the silkiness of TENCEL®, and its ability to work in blends. Read more at Carved in Blue.
