Trade fair: Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics

The future is green

Megatrend sustainability: Fringe programme of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics to focus on various aspects of this important future topic.

September 2018

From unacceptable working conditions to unworn clothing being burnt down to contaminated waters – the textile industry seems to be attracting more and more negative headlines these days. So it’s hardly surprising that the plea for more environmentally friendly and fair production is becoming increasingly louder and the demand for more sustainable products is continuously increasing.

But what specific measures make sense for companies in the textile industry? How can they gain the confidence of consumers with eco-certificates? And how can sustainability be implemented in the denim industry? From 27 until 29 September 2018, the fringe programme of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, the world’s biggest trade fair for clothing fabrics and accessories, will be putting the spotlight on sustainable exhibitors and topics. In panel discussions, industry experts will be debating environmentally and socially responsible approaches and showcasing innovative solutions. And the more than 70,000 visitors who are expected to attend will also be able to find out what progress China is making in terms of sustainable production at the “Scale up GOTS in China” seminar. Selected brands and retailers like H&M, Target and Bestseller will also be presenting environmentally friendly alternatives.

As well as the focus on sustainability, the fringe programme will also be covering topics like functional innovations, the growing appeal of Africa as a production location and the fashion trends for autumn and winter 2019/20 – including the most important trends from the Asia-Pacific Region .
