The 40th Texworld Paris show aspires as ever to offer a venue for international fabric manufacturers and 730 exhibitors have been chosen by the selection committee on the strength of the quality and benefits of their products. There is an increase in the number of previous exhibitors now returning after missing several of the recent shows.

Backed by its business network extending throughout the world, Texworld is a platform that offers products with cosmopolitan flair and overflows with unrivalled choices, which are both distinctive and respond to market requirements.

Turkey, with 87 exhibitors, remains the 2nd most represented country after China and continues to leave its mark on the show by virtue of its skills and expertise, Korea ranks third with 71 exhibitors, some 30 of which are to be found in the KOFOTI pavilion. India with 53 exhibitors, Taiwan with 26 and Pakistan with 19 bring up the rear of this top five; both countries consider Texworld Paris as THE international platform for market opportunities.

“Watch out for the arrival of the French firm of Domotex, a specialist in prints, and of a Canadian company designing jeans that are made in China. The ranges for shirting, jacquard, fake fur and synthetic leather will be especially varied in the 17-18 winter season,” organisers enthuse.

ELITE, the segment dedicated to customised solutions, welcomes to its second show 21 exhibitors, the majority of which played a role in setting up this space for specialist offers that are adapted for European markets.

The show will be host for the third time to the FRANKfurtstyleaward, the renowned international fashion competition that has promoted young designers since 2007.

A series of lectures about the latest developments in the sector, news from exhibitors, catwalk shows and the Trends Forum go to make up a varied and imaginative programme, providing visitors with food for thought as they work their way around Texworld Paris.
