Yarn Expo Autumn exhibitors cater for a new wave of demand for sustainable products
As the world has become ever-more eco-conscious in recent years, the textile industry has been no exception. There has been a significant focus and push for sustainable production processes, products and technologies across the entire supply chain. And the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted even more so, the need for sustainability within the textile sector. Whilst manufacturing and travel paused for a moment, skies became clearer and water was cleaner in lockdown cities as the environmental impact of pre-COVID-19 lifestyles was exposed to consumers, who now expect change following the pandemic. At Yarn Expo Autumn, held from 23 – 25 September at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai), visitors will have the chance to view a diverse range of raw and recycled products to satisfy consumer demand for a more sustainable industry.

With 10,000 years of history, see why spinners are choosing hemp again
Sustainable, efficient and with 50,000 possible end uses: hemp offers a useful product for a range of industries. Hemp fibres have been spun into fabrics for at least 10,000 years, but in recent decades, hemp has been a less popular choice for textiles. However, thanks to the crop’s natural benefits, for both sustainability and comfort, hemp is making a comeback in a huge range of industries, including apparel. Lithuanian hemp fibre supplier Naturalus Pluostas (Natural Fiber) joined Yarn Expo Autumn for the first time in September 2019, and experienced huge interest in their hemp fibres.
