Yarn Expo exhibitors offer a sustainable, traceable starting point for fashion brands
In recent editions of Yarn Expo, new opportunities have been presenting themselves as demand for transparency in the textile supply chain increases. At Yarn Expo Spring 2019, three highlighted exhibitors were selected for in-depth case studies: Birla Cellulose (China), Cotton Council International (USA) and Safilin (France). Each exhibitor gave their opinion on shifting sourcing trends, what needs to be done to achieve sustainability in the textile industry, and how they found entry points into new markets at Yarn Expo.
Final report: Yarn Expo Autumn wraps up with 501 exhibitors and over 19,000 visitors
More exhibitors than ever joined Yarn Expo Autumn 2018, which was held concurrently with ITMA ASIA + CITME from 15 – 17 October at the National Exhibition Convention Centre (Shanghai). 501 suppliers from 14 countries & regions participated, with new countries to the show including France. This international diversification, as well as strong domestic numbers, demonstrated Yarn Expo’s increasing recognition as a top show in the industry.

These exhibitors, as the largest gathering ever seen at the fair, are set to welcome a wide variety of visitors throughout the textile supply chain next week, solidifying the status of Yarn Expo as the leading first stop of every textile sourcing season. The fair will take place this edition alongside ITMA ASIA + CITME.
“Going green” a predicted hit at Yarn Expo Autumn
Sustainability is more than an industry trend. By definition, it is a long-lasting key message for development, with more buyers looking to source environmentally-friendly products that are still competitively-priced. Responsible sources of specialty yarns, fancy yarns and chemical fibres are all on offer at this year’s Autumn Edition of Yarn Expo, held from 15 – 17 October. For this Autumn Edition, Yarn Expo is set to take place concurrently with the biennial ITMA ASIA + CITME.
A sustainable supply chain, from the ground up: a case study of CCI
Cotton Council International (CCI) is a global non-profit organisation, which promotes US cotton using their COTTON USA™ brand. While they have participated at previous editions of Intertextile, in 2019 they took part in Yarn Expo for the first time. Messe Frankfurt had a chance to sit down with Ms Karin Malmström, Director of CCI China & Northeast Asia, to discuss the benefits of using a sustainable raw material throughout the entire supply chain.
