Garmon Chemicals, the textile auxiliaries business unit of San Marino-headquartered Kemin Industries, has opened a new fashion laboratory in Jiangmen, Guangdong, China.

Close to Kemin’s regional headquarters in Zhuhai and many customers, this is the company’s first applications laboratory outside San Marino and broadens the opportunity for its technicians to work closely with local companies.

With Garmon Studio China, Kemin Textile Auxiliaries will also be able to create local collections that better match domestic styles and trends. It will be equipped with the most modern equipment available, including Kemin’s Smart Foam system that reduces water consumption in textile applications by up to 80%.

To celebrate its opening, Garmon Studio created a special pair of jeans in honor of the 50th anniversary of official relations between San Marino and China.

The fabric, provided by Advance Denim, is made of natural cotton and hemp fibres and Smart Foam technology was used in the denim finishing, which was performed at room temperature and with Garmon’s most sustainable products. A gold-foil ‘50’ on the finished product represents the years of official friendship between San Marino and China.

During a July  business forum at the Kursaal Congress Centre in San Marino, Garmon donated the one-of-a-kind piece to the San Marino Minister of Industry and The People’s Republic of China Ambassador to both Italy and San Marino. In parallel, the Kemin Textile Auxiliaries team in China inaugurated the new Garmon Studio via video call.
