Returning to the Javits Convention Center in New York City, Texworld USA will once again open its doors to exhibitors and attendees alike on Tuesday, July 12, 2016. Continuing through Thursday, July 14, the 10th anniversary edition of the North American fabric sourcing show features a brand new international pavilion, the most diverse product group offering to date, and a dedicated focus on sustainable and eco-friendly product, said show organizers.
Texworld USA’s summer 2016 edition will feature more than 500 international exhibitors representing 15 countries, including the USA, United Kingdom, China, Indonesia, Lebanon, Japan, Canada, Colombia, India and more. Alongside the returning Turkey and Taiwan pavilions, a brand new Korea pavilion presented by KTTA will make its debut on the show floor.
Once again, the Lenzing Innovations pavilion will return to Texworld USA with 25 exhibitors focused on incorporating sustainable fibers into a wide range of product categories.
“Through our new selection committee process we’ve ensured that the quality of our exhibitors and their offerings is the highest we’ve ever presented at Texworld USA,” said Jennifer Bacon, Show Director. “In addition, we’ve listened to what the industry is demanding and we’ve continued to expand our functional fabric, denim and eco-friendly categories.”
Attendees will have the opportunity to source fabrics, trims and accessories for every type of product line – women, men, juniors and children’s wear — across a total of 16 product groups, including the brand new “faux fur” category and an expanded functional fabrics category.
Taking note of recent industry discussions and the increased importance of sustainable sourcing to both consumers and designers, Texworld USA has increased its focus on the topic. Attendees will be able to discover over 35 exhibitors offering sustainable and eco-friendly textiles and on-site recycled fiber demonstrations courtesy of Repreve and the #TurnItGreen tour interactive trailer. Rounding out the sustainability focus, Lenzing Innovation will present 6 complimentary, expert-led educational sessions focused on sustainability as part of the Texworld USA seminar series and the brand new Texworld USA Industry Boot Camps programming.
