UKFT to host digital British Textile Week

Sep '20
The UK Fashion & Textile Association (UKFT) is set to launch the British Textile Week from September 9-15, 2020, to provide a digital showcase of the craftsmanship, creativity, and technical skills of the UK textile industry. UKFT is co-ordinating the project, with the generous support of The Clothworkers’ Company and the Campaign for Wool.

During the week, UKFT will tell the stories of some of the British textile companies that would normally be at international apparel fabric trade shows during the month of September, as well as putting the spotlight on some of the pioneers and leaders in the textile field. Each day will have a theme, and the week will feature a series of online articles, images, interviews, case studies, videos, seasonal trends, and more, according to a press release by UKFT.

UK fabrics are highly sought after by the world’s most prestigious designers, tailors and fashion brands as the starting point for their collections, while our home-grown flair for printed, woven, knitted and embroidered textile design blends creativity with commerciality.

Fabrics and yarns made in the UK are highly sought after by leading brands, designers, and retailers and the UK exports £3 billion of textiles to almost every country in the world. The UK has a strong textile heritage and a promising future, with more than 4,800 people studying textiles at university each year on courses including textile design, textile technology, and textile engineering.
