Chesapeake develops new utility kitchen towel technology

Retail Editor 4, August 5, 2013

Venice Beach, Fla. - Scott Silver, president of Chesapeake Textiles Company, has developed and patented a new technique for making multi-face, multi-fiber towels and fabrics for home textiles.

Combining cotton and microfiber to create "the towel of the future,"
Silver's new "Multi Face Fabric Towel" invention - U.S. patent #US 8,236,403 - can be used to develop a variety of towel styles, such as pigment print reversing to textured micro fiber; heat transfer print reversing to textured cotton; and solid color programs with jacquard or dobby embellishments.

The product has been six years in the making, from initial concept to sample development to the utility patent process.

"By combing the ability to print fashion textiles, and giving designers the choice of pigment printing or heat-transfer sublimation printing, along with separate faces for solid color textured utility/function, this new patented towel removes the age old quandary of both retailers and consumers, of whether to go with printed fashion or woven utility and functionality," Silver explained.

Inventing new kinds of product technologies for home textiles has long been part of Silver's endeavors. He developed what he claims to have been the first full bleed printed heat-transfer sublimation towel with 100% print coverage, as well as inventing the patented technique to weave micro fiber into towels.
