The Future Fabrics Expo focuses on how fashion’s environmental impact can be lowered through textile innovation, and novel ideas to transform the fashion system and design practice. The Future Fabrics Virtual Expo is an online tool to make the expo content available any time, from anywhere.
We also assist with sustainable fabric sourcing and consulting for brands, and have collaborated on international projects including the Nike x London College of Fashion “Mobilize Makers” project.
Find out who we are here.
Our curated materials collection embodies a range of sustainable principles and new technologies, sourced from international suppliers and mills who demonstrate a commitment to lowering the environmental impact across the textile supply chain. Our aim is to support sustainable sourcing, enabling fashion brands to begin diversifying their fabrics and materials basket, in order to contribute to reducing their environmental impact. Each fabric has detailed specifications regarding its environmental impact, relevant certifications and the contact details of the supplier displayed.
The 7th Future Fabrics Expo will again showcase a diverse range of more than 3000 individually sourced fabrics with a reduced environmental impact sourced from dozens of international mills and suppliers. Alongside our showcase of innovative fabrics with a lower environmental footprint, we also feature low impact leathers and leather alternatives. Background information explaining sustainability in materials is displayed throughout the showcase. Fabrics on show will be ideally suited for a wide range of market levels and product types, making this the largest and most diverse showcase of commercially available sustainable materials in the industry. Extensive background information on sustainability in fashion and textiles, and the latest textile and processing innovations will also be showcased.
As in 2017, we will again feature seminars from key organisations and innovators, highlighting circular economy systems and transparency in the fashion supply chain. Your ticket will include entry to the seminars which you can book upon entry to the Future Fabrics Expo, you can see previous seminars HERE
