InStyle and Colan Australia announced the joint acquisition of Geelong Textiles Australia late last year, and the subsequent rebranding as LoomTex. LoomTex will continue to create upholstery, apparel and technical fabrics in Geelong for commercial and domestic use, with plans for investments in technology, research and development that will ensure it remains at the forefront of the industry. Instyle is a sustainable textile wholesaler supporting Australian design and production, and Colan is a manufacturer and distributor of high performance industrial textiles.
