FUTURE FABRICS EXPO | Paris Edition

23-28th September 2021

La Caserne, 12 Rue Philippe de Girard 75010 Paris, France

We debuted our Paris edition of the Future Fabrics Expo from 23-28 September at La Caserne, Europe's largest sustainable fashion accelerator hub.
 
The Expo featured a curated display of thousands of sustainable materials, alongside best-practice suppliers, and spotlighted the latest innovations around recycling technologies and regenerative agriculture. 

Thank you to all those who attended our Future Fabrics Expo Paris edition! We welcomed many visitors ranging from luxury brands to high-street retailers to startups, and academics.

We were thrilled to have seen such a strong demand for the materials we showcased. The sheer intent, energy, and engagement exceeded our expectations. Visitors' interest in reading the educational content we provided was heartening, from materials' environmental impacts to the sustainability information of potential solutions.
