Trade Show: Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics

Sustainability through and through

In the fashion industry, there's no way around the topic of sustainability. The upcoming Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, taking place from 9 to 11 October 2021, proves the point. Visitors and buyers can explore the issue in the All About Sustainability zone, both on-site in Shanghai and on a digital platform.

September 2021

Recycled textiles, plant-based fabrics, innovative solutions: From 9 to 11 October 2021, exhibitors and buyers will meet at the autumn edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabric to explore current trends in the fashion and textile industry. Sustainable innovations will take centre stage. Visitors to the previous edition of the trade show were already impressed by the wide range of sustainable alternatives: "I very much agree that Intertextile uses its strong influence to bring the industry together and promote its progress. Here at the fair, I can clearly feel that the entire market is paying more attention to sustainable and functional fabrics”, observed Ms Bella Lin, Designer at CGC (Shanghai) Corporation, China.

China's fashion and textile industry is currently moving towards sustainability. Buyers are actively seeking eco-friendly products and solutions. According to a study published by the international R.I.S.E Sustainable Fashion Lab, 85 per cent of Chinese consumers no longer buy from brands with a negative environmental image. In touch with the latest trends:  Sustainable exhibitors include the American company DuPont, which will showcase the new, high-performance, plant-based fabric, Sorona. Yagi & Company of Hong Kong will present its recycled yarn product, Recycolor. Here, cut waste and scraps of material generated during the apparel-production process are collected, sorted by colour and the recovered fibres reborn as yarn. Toray Industries of Japan will also introduce a new fibre made from recycled PET bottles.
