Cotton Council International (CCI) showcased what is new in cotton, with a focus on innovative US cotton-rich products from Latin American Cotton USA licensees, at its booth at Colombiamoda in Medellin, US. CCI featured new product developments from Liztex, Textufil, Disex, Toptex and Fabricato, which attracted attention from the booth visitors.

To reinforce awareness of Cotton USA in the regional textile industry, CCI handed out 8,000 information packets about the Cotton USA Sourcing Programme and its 13 US mill participants to visitors during the three-day fair.

In addition, CCI organised a sustainability panel with Procolombia on the second day of the show. CCI showed several Cotton USA videos focusing on US cotton's sustainability. Representatives from companies such as Color Siete, Fabricato, CI Jeans and Crystal, spoke on the panel. Ten buyers from Belgium and the US attended the panel, including Tory Burch, Venus, LAT Apparel and Vineyard Vines.

Colombiamoda had 27,200 visitors, 500 exhibitors and 11,800 buyers in attendance. Some 88 per cent of the buyers were domestic, and 12 per cent came from 40 countries, mainly Ecuador, Mexico, US and Peru. (PC)
