“The Future Fabrics Expo is one of the most exciting events in the sourcing calendar. The FFE team have done an incredible job curating such a wide range of amazing exhibitors – nowhere else is there such a variety of innovative and sustainable fabrics, plus the seminars are insightful and thought-provoking. One not to miss!”

“The Future Fabrics Expo was a wonderful platform to deliver the critical sustainability message amongst the fashion industry.
The visitors were able to learn, understand and share the latest in sustainable development in different areas, meet and discuss the new
initiatives of future materials, with industry wide representatives. We were really impressed that visitors attended from all over the world,
and were so receptive to the innovative and constructive ideas showcased throughout the Expo in their discussions with us”.

“We are more than pleased with the latest Future Fabric Expo in London. It is the only textile show where we participate as a core exhibitor, and we certainly intend to continue doing so! For us the concept is very much unique in that it has an open and welcoming collaborative concept. It creates a wonderful atmosphere where like minded people that are serious about making our industry more sustainable can come together to share, listen, learn and create”.

“It was a really great experience to visit the Expo, as it’s such an opportunity for designers and brands to source their materials from more sustainable mills. The platform you provide makes it a lot easier to get in contact or even discover new mills, such as emerging innovative materials.” – Ana Pasalic from Stella McCartney Ltd

“The Expo was a great experience for us as a Sustainable Packaging company. It was very well organized and we were able to meet many exciting brands all the way from start-up stage to some of the largest brands around”.


“Sustainability, allows us to join hands with other industries in the pursuit of a common goal, since we all should embrace this cause. Although this type of event is not a natural habitat for an outsoles manufacturer, we´ve got an incredible feedback from all types of professionals in the fashion industry.

It has also brought us new challenges, as we´ve got requests for other types of business, using our factory and sustainable approaches.

We´ve started this path of a circular approach more than 10 years ago. Nowadays, it´s rewarding to be at events where we find people in line with our vision. We will definitely be back to present our new advanced sustainable solutions, as this is ongoing process.

The time is now!”
