Five Portuguese exhibitors visit the capital of Lithuania in Eastern Europe to participate in the 22nd edition of Baltic Textile+Leather.

The textile fair takes place between 17th and 19th October and hosts exhibitors such as Goucam – Impetus – Lady Susy – Lipaco and Sanmartin. This initiative is promoted by the Selectiva Moda Association, within the internationalisation project From Portugal, supported by NSRF and Compete (Competitiveness Factors Operational Programme).

In order to benefit from opportunities stemming from economic growth in Lithuania, the Selectiva Moda Association organises its 8th participation in the Lithuanian event – Baltic Textile+Leather. Goucam – Impetus – Lady Susy – Lipaco – Sanmartin – are the five companies representing the Portuguese delegation that is going to Vilnius within the scope of the From Portugal internationalisation project, an initiative organised by the Selectiva Moda Association supported by NSRF and Compete.

This will be Goucam’s first time at this event in Vilnius, where it presents its women and men’s collection, with special emphasis on overcoats, jackets, skirts and trousers. "Our participation in this fair is related to its proximity of the Russian market and the amount of visitors of the same market", explain Henrique Gandara, the company’s commercial director.

Another newcomer is Impetus, taking to Lithuania the freshness of Brazil and its culture that inspire its underwear collection for the following hot season- On display will be the collections of its own two brand names – Impetus and Hot. Impetus highlights its Nago line, made of open weave cotton mesh, and the Trendy line, where high-tech fibres are used. HOT is considered the most vanguard brand of the group for its unique design, attention to detail and customised approach, where everyone can find their own intimate style.

"Our aim is to cover the Baltic region, where we have an agent focused on market development, and we consider it important to promote Impetus brands to support our local agent’s activities", reveals Helena Soares, from the company’s communications department. 

On the other hand, this is Intecol’s second time at Baltic Textile+Leather with its Lady Susy brand.

"We are participating in this fair in search of new markets in the proximity of countries in Eastern Europe, such as Russia. This is our second time at this event and we feel quite optimistic", says Célia Machado, the company’s general manager. Featured will be everyday-wear socks and tights particularly noted for their softness and comfort with constant focus on the most recent trends in colours and patterns.

The 22nd edition of Baltic Textile+Leather focuses more on the areas on display and a comprehensive programme that includes conferences, seminars, displays of trends, fashion shows and others. The exhibition hall occupies an area of 6200m2 and the last edition registered a total of 230 exhibitors from 23 countries and around 8100 visitors.

Participation of Portuguese companies in Baltic Textile+Leather is an initiative organised by the Selectiva Moda Association, supported by Compete and NSRF and integrated in the From Portugal project. 

Selectiva Moda is an association that promotes the internationalisation of Portuguese companies and for 2013 it has an programme of international actions in 35 different markets, aimed at the areas of yarns, fabric and finishing accessories, fashion, home textiles and decoration and technical textiles.
