YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-03-14 15:00:00 – Munich

Performance days is the functional fabric fair for innovations, trends, and sourcing of fabrics will be taking place in Germany next month with challenges and opportunities around recycled textile materials as the key theme.

There will be a strong sustainability theme running throughout the two day show which will take place in Germany and include more than 120 exhibitors from 23 nations. The show will include the latest trends in fabric development for the functional textile industry and is the only exhibition to link seasonal sourcing schedules (April/May and November), offering textiles, yarns, finishes and accessories.

The functional fabric fair attracts the major international manufacturers and most of the well-known sportswear and active clothing brands as well as the sports fashion collection industry.

Presenting on these issues will be Ashley Gill of Textile Exchange, who will look at certification for recycled materials, Thread CEO, Ian Rosenberger, who will look at using recycled fabrics to address poverty, and Nora Kuhner, an independent fashion and design consultant who will examine how to "change the game" of waste and production. Closing the loop in textiles will also be high on the agenda.

Among the other sustainability issues tackled at the show will be presentations from Lars Gutow, a marine biologist at the Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research who will look at the 'fabric footprint in the ocean.' Gutow's presentation will give an overview of the pollution of the world's oceans by anthropogenic litter, with delegates learning about the sources and distribution of marine litter and its implications in the marine environment.

Also presenting will be Carlo Centonze who, since 2004, has served HeiQ as CEO. Centonze will provide an overview of the various fluorine-free technologies available for achieving durable water repellency together with insights into how natural materials, and unique geometries and structures found in nature are informing some of the emerging technologies for achieving fluorine-free durable water repellency performance.

The fair will run from 20-21 April 2016 in Munich, Germany and will offer visitors everything from textiles, to yarns, finishes and accessories.
