It [Future Fabrics Expo] is very interesting, and super useful. Anybody who is interested in sustainable textiles should go; it is a great sourcing hub.” – Katharine Hamnett


“[Conventional] cotton is so overrated. The Future Fabrics Expo is really good to find alternative fabrics.” – Leah Borromeo, Guardian Sustainable Business


“I was very impressed with the collection of sustainable fabrics available, in particular the shirting fabrics. The Info Hub provided interactive information on relevant tools and initiatives for anyone (but specifically would be of interest to designers, buyers and technicians) wishing to enhance their knowledge on sustainable design and sourcing.” – Carol Rose, WRAP


“I love the curating job in this Future Fabrics Expo with the fabric categories and rails organised by feeling. As a brand we appreciate this kind of curating. It is great to see progressive technical fabrics as well as aesthetic fabrics together.” – Ada Zanditon, designer


“The Expo brings together leading fabric innovation from localised production to cutting edge globally sourced fibres, to provide designers and brands with much needed access to sustainable suppliers. It is awesome to see the diverse collection as a whole and connect with the dedicated suppliers who make it up. It is an invaluable resource for fashion designers and fashion educators.” – Lizzie Harrison, Sustain, Royal College of Art


“The big interest of the Fashion industry in sustainable textiles showcased by The Sustainable Angle indicates great potential for the Future Fabrics Expo, as they offer a platform for the textile industry as well as sustainable initiatives like CmiA.” – CmiA


“We love small designers and start ups, they have the excitement, energy, and courage we enjoy working with, and there seemed to be lots at the show. We have really enjoyed the feedback and response to our fabrics from visitors to the Future Fabrics Expo – many many thanks for all your hard work.” – Organic Textile Company


“Great to see such a diverse array of sustainable materials on show. I particularly enjoyed the amount of information that was available about materials and sustainability and other related research projects. The expo was easy to navigate around and information was accessible and engaging. I thought the series of iPads also worked really well as information points to different issues and ideas – helping to add a richer context around the materials collection as a whole.” – Emma Dulcie Rigby, Programme Co-Leader, Fashion Design, Buckinghamshire New University
“We flew in from California just for the Future Fabrics Expo. It was so worth it, we found many fabrics for our brand.” – Alex Otton, ‘Amor de’ fashion
