Trend experts predict a new wave for authenticity--authentic products that truly enhance our quality of life, and technical textiles in the various sectors will make a major contribution in this paradigm shift.

The Industrial Fabrics Association International and IHOFMANN have organized and proudly present the 2nd edition of Advanced Textiles, 2-3 April 2009, a uniquely inspiring program.
