Morphotex and the Butterfly | Morphotex y la Mariposa



Morpho butterflies remain a vibrant blue throughout their lives, without ever needing a coat of paint to spruce up a dull finish. The scales on their wings are made of many layers of proteins that refract light in different ways, and the color we see often is due entirely to the play of light and structure rather than the presence of pigments.

The amazing fiber called Morphotex is the firs fiber material that realizes a mysterious color illuination with  no pigmentation.  Teijin Fibers offers 120-tex/12-filament yarn for apparel applications, and 80-tex/20-filaments for paints. Most of the products are used for apparel including denim and women’s wear. Powder will be supplied for paints for electricity-, auto- and printing-related products pendant to be applied in design projects. See more in Ask Nature and Teijin Fibers.
