Buyers to explore opportunities in China at Yarn Expo

Buyers to explore opportunities in China at Yarn Expo
Yarn Expo from March 12 will offer a springboard for exhibitors to capture the potential of the China market. Over 450 exhibitors from 12 countries and regions, including new exhibitors from Egypt and France will display natural cotton, linen and wool, as well as extensive options for fancy yarn, functional fibres and other specialty yarns at the fair.

The three-day fair will see an increase in international exhibitor numbers, as well as domestic. This includes Yarn Expo Spring’s first ever exhibitor from France, as well as Yarn Expo’s first ever exhibitor from Egypt. Together with leading suppliers from Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Pakistan, Singapore, the US, Uzbekistan and Vietnam, they will showcase products from around the world.

The trade show will be held along with four concurrent events, including Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics at Shanghai. The fair has developed a strong reputation for gathering high-quality suppliers, such as CCI, who offer access to their sustainable Cotton USA licensed spinners.

“Manufacturing a high-quality finished product starts with using high-quality raw materials,” explained Karin Malstrom, director of China & Northeast Asia at CCI in a pre-show interview, noting why they chose to exhibit at Yarn Expo Spring this year. “Our US Cotton Trust Protocol is the culmination of years of efforts and research to reduce the environmental footprint of the entire US cotton industry. Our whole US cotton industry is highly regulated and systemised by the US government. That's why, if you use US cotton, you are already way ahead to becoming fully sustainable, transparent and traceable in your operations. We find that more and more consumers prefer natural fibres in performance garments, so this is a very exciting direction for us.”

“Recently, we’ve seen more companies seeking new and alternative ways to source high-quality materials. Cotton USA can provide excellent platforms for sourcing throughout the supply chain – from high-quality US cotton, to spinning, fabric and garment manufacturing, and even down to retail," said CCI.

CCI will showcase their global network of Cotton USA yarn licensees at the fair, creating opportunities for domestic visitors to source US cotton. “We feel that the timing is very good to introduce new and high quality sources of cotton and cotton-blended yarns to the market, especially in China,” observed CCI. “We can easily link Chinese manufacturers up with spinners anywhere in the world.” (RR)
