Trade Show: Yarn Expo

A sustainable new beginning

Sustainability is becoming more and more important by the minute – also in the textile industry, the issue is omnipresent. At international sourcing platform Yarn Expo, visitors can get an overview of sustainably produced yarns and fibres from 23rd to 25th September 2020.

In the past months, the world has stood still in many ways. Some of this time was used by the fashion industry to question old processes and pave the way for new procedures. The industry has been transitioning away from short-lived concepts to more sustainable ones. Yarn Expo will support this transition by focusing exclusively on raw materials and recycled products at its autumn edition in Shanghai. From 23rd to 25th September 2020, exhibitors from all over the world will present a large variety of sustainable and recycled materials to the international crowd.

Visitors at Yarn Expo have the possibility to exchange information with industry experts about environmentally friendly ways of producing textiles. Non-profit organisation Cotton Council International (CCI) has been promoting the production of sustainable cotton for 60 years. In cooperation with spinning mills, fabric and clothing manufacturers, retail, textile associations and the governments of various countries, the organisation has developed a sustainability programme, which will be presented at the trade show. The programme's goal is to create more transparency when it comes to the production and processing of cotton, because sustainable end products can be produced only by using materials that save resources. „If you do not get it right at the beginning, you’ll never get it right at the end. Your finished product is as good as the material you put into it. It is that simple!,“ says Karin Malmström, director of CCI China and Northeast Asia.

Yarn Expo will take place alongside the autumn edition of Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, one of the biggest trade shows for clothing fabrics. The newest trends and developments in the textile industry will be presented in September in the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai.
