The 10th Future Fabrics Expo: source from thousands of textiles with a low environmental impact and discover sustainable solutions for a responsible fashion future at our first Physical Expo since COVID. 

Join us at the 10th Future Fabrics Expo and be part of the movement galvanising positive change for the future of fashion! The Expo has expanded to include even MORE best practice suppliers. The fashion and textile industries are currently responsible for significant impacts upon planet and people. However, fashion can and should be part of the solution, representing a powerful force for positive change by following regenerative design principles and a circular systems approach. These themes take centre stage in the materials sourcing showcase, echoed by our dynamic Seminar Series

Discover how our fibres are grown and materials are made in relation to their impacts upon climate, biodiversity, soil and the oceans. Learn about the critical imperative to source responsibly, operate within planetary boundaries  in order to address climate change, secure sustainable supply chains and align with the Sustainable Development Goals.  Explore the extensive Innovation Hub in partnership with Parley for the Oceans, Information Zone and Curated Installations which spotlight positive solutions, all contextualised with educational information, including thousands of textiles across all fibre categories, providing commercially available alternatives to polluting conventional materials. 

Explore the newly added Curated Area of Solutions featuring supporting partners of the Future Fabrics Expo. Learn more about the potential of agricultural waste as the new frontier of next-gen solutions supported by Laudes Foundation and powered by its partners Canopy and Fashion for Good; the focus on Biodiversity in partnership with LVMH; be inspired by Plastic Free Fashion; and discover The Mills Fabrica’s solutions. Rediscover forgotten fibres in the Hemp Hub and explore the Regenerative Agriculture Area including materials and samples. This educational information displayed throughout this area is made possible by our partners. Each unique display shares educational content for the industry to explore, learn about and experience the opportunities and roles of the future of textiles.

This year at The Sustainable Angle’s Future Fabrics Expo we will share the next chapter of our journey. One that is dedicated to a close collaboration with nature, to green chemistry and biology. For the Oceans, Climate and Life!” Cyrill Gutsch, CEO and founder of Parley for the Oceans.
