Yarn Expo to see more exhibitors in Fancy Yarn Zone
Yarn Expo Spring 2019 will see a significant rise in exhibitors at the Fancy Yarn Zone, with 125 exhibitors already set to showcase their latest fancy yarn collections. Yarn Expo, be held in Shanghai, comes out with new options each edition, with a wide array of yarn and fibre products, from fancy yarn to high-quality wool yarn, cotton, and chemical fibres.

Over 460 exhibitors from 11 countries and regions will join the fair, to be held during March 12-14. These include China, France, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Korea, Pakistan, Singapore, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, and newcomer country Egypt.

The fair will be concurrent with four renowned fairs, including Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, to attract the entire textile supply chain. Sourcing trends indicate that consumers are more conscious of the materials that construct their clothes. As such, Yarn Expo has seen fashion brands like Adidas, Ralph Lauren and Zara source upstream in recent editions, partnering with yarn and fibre suppliers to meet consumer demand. For brands in the textile industry, Yarn Expo is a prime platform to find innovation, whether that’s in sustainable fibres, high-quality yarns or unique functional products.

With fancy yarn continuing as a popular option for stand-out fashion trends, this year’s larger Fancy Yarn Zone is expected to be a visitor hotspot. Other fashion trends – such as sustainable apparel, easy-care athleisure, and high-quality premium wool tailoring – can be developed with the product expertise of Yarn Expo’s exhibitors. The fair’s global reputation and product zones – such as the Fancy Yarn Zone, Quality Wool Zone and Green Linen Zone – attract high-quality exhibitors from China, including well-known enterprises Lida, Hongqi, Jiancheng, Hoyia and Dalong.

Functional and chemical fibre zones will showcase new products with technological, fashionable and sustainable features. Domestic exhibitors can be found in four themed areas within these zones: ‘China Fibre Trends 2019 / 2020’, ‘Innovative Functions’, ‘Green and Environmental Protection’ and ‘Industrial Alliance’.

Cellulose fibres can be found at the Sateri Pavilion, led by leading viscose manufacturer Sateri Group. More product ranges can be found at the China Hi-Tech Corporation Pavilion. Meanwhile, the Natural Cotton Yarn zone will promote high-grade refined cotton yarn, as well as fine siro spinning, air jet vortex spinning, rotor spinning and functional yarn products. Highlighted areas in this zone include the Xinjiang Pavilion, led by the Xinjiang government, which will include 23 premium cotton spinning exhibitors.

The China Fibre Trend Forum will focus on a curated selection of fibres from exhibitors, illustrating China’s 2019 / 2020 fibre trends. Meanwhile, academics, corporate executives and industry experts will closely interpret hot topics at the Textile Materials Innovation Forum. Themed around ‘New Vision of Fibres’, discussions will delve into the future of the fibre market: the direction of smart textile development, application demands for green textiles and the latest trends in textile product development – a series of talks that serve to enhance audiences’ business knowledge and insight. Launch events will also feature the latest products and technologies from selected exhibitors.

The fair will be held concurrently with Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition, Intertextile Shanghai Home Textiles – Spring Edition, PH Value and the China International Fashion Fair (CHIC). Yarn Expo Spring is organised by Messe Frankfurt (HK) and the Sub-Council of Textile Industry, CCPIT. (SV)
