Sustainability at focus at Yarn Expo Autumn Edition
Sustainable sources of specialty yarns, fancy yarns and chemical fibres will be the focus at this year’s Autumn Edition of Yarn Expo during October 15–17. For this year, Yarn Expo is set to take place concurrently with the biennial ITMA ASIA + CITME. More and more buyers these days are looking to source competitively-priced environmentally-friendly products.

With global attention on the environmental impact of the textile industry, suppliers worldwide are enjoying the benefits of sustainable products. Yarns produced in an environmentally-friendly manner create a domino effect throughout the textile industry. Ultimately, an increasing number of products could be manufactured using sources with minimised environmental impact, catering to customer demands.

One such example is brilliantly coloured fancy yarn, which can be weaved into a variety of products, reducing the industry’s use of more polluting dying processes. “We can find all ranges of cotton yarn, fancy yarn and chemical fibres at Yarn Expo,” noted Wang Gaofeng of Jiaxing Jingqie Fashion at the Spring Edition 2018. “Yarn Expo always catches the latest trends in the industry and presents them at the fair.”

The India pavilion is one such place buyers can find eco-friendly products. At the Autumn Edition 2018, the pavilion will include Valson Polyester, which produces a wide range of shades using eco-friendly paints, avoiding azokislotnye dyes. Other highlights include quality organic yarns such as GTN Group’s organic (ecopure) and organic blend cotton yarn (ecocare), as well as Shreedhar Cotsyn’s sustainable series of organic, BCI and OEKO-TEX yarns.

Eco-friendly fibres, such as wormwood, mint or silk hemp, often take advantage of natural functions. These can include antibacterial and anti-pestilence functions, which have won the favour of buyers worldwide. Yarn Expo has quickly established itself to be a leading platform for exhibitors to announce their latest technologies.

This is key as manufacturers in the industry rapidly develop sustainable products, in keeping with competitors and customer demand. As Warakorn Bunkanokwong of Kongkiat Textile observed in the Spring Edition 2018: “The feedback from buyers from around the world can help us improve and learn the latest market trends.” This level of innovation, achieved through valuable connections, is central to Yarn Expo’s ethos.

Organised by Texprocil (The Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council), the India Pavilion now features over 50 Indian cotton manufacturers, forming a key bridge to connect global buyers with fine Indian yarns and fibres. Other well-known international exhibitors include Indorama, Chemtax Industrial and Sateri. With this being the fourth year of Indorama’s participation, Anupam Agrawal of Indorama described Yarn Expo as “an ideal platform where you meet not only your Chinese partners, but also your global partners”.

Yarn Expo Autumn is Asia’s leading trade platform for the yarn and fibre industry, with quality suppliers from around the world showcasing natural and blended yarns including cotton, wool, flax, and man-made fibres and yarns, as well as specialty products including elastic, fancy and blended yarns. Last year’s Autumn Edition attracted 493 exhibitors from 13 countries and regions, and 17,185 trade buyers from 84 countries and regions. (SV)
