The Sustainable Angle is a not for profit organisation that initiates and supports projects which contribute to minimizing the environmental impact of industry and society, and that help make it easier for companies, institutions and individuals, to make better informed decisions when it comes to sustainability.
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.

The 6th Future Fabrics Expo took place in January 2017 and welcomed over 650 visitors. Showcased were a diverse range of more than 2000 individually sourced fabrics and leathers with a reduced environmental impact sourced from dozens of international mills and suppliers. Fabrics on show are ideally suited for a wide range of market levels and product types, making this the largest and most diverse showcase of commercially available more sustainable materials in the industry. Extensive background information on sustainability in fashion and textiles, and the latest textile and processing innovations were also be showcased.
