The balance between beautiful materials, innovation, and responsible manufacturing is becoming the norm with the ISPO Textrends Hub. Newly located in Hall C1, ISPO Textrends is the essential springboard for brands and product developers to start sourcing for the next season.

The eighth edition of ISPO Textrends encourages a harmonious approach between creativity and the in-depth development of seasonal basics for Fall/Winter 21/22, but with one common thread, the ever-growing importance of sustainability and responsible production. Creativity is a key driver, incorporating both recycled and virgin yarns through to innovative print and dye techniques, digitalization and novel constructions.

No longer the exception but now the rule, sustainable elements feature throughout the 480 items covering ten categories at ISPO Textrends, from insulation through to outer layer, trims, and accessories. What makes ISPO Textrends unique is the international jury of textile experts who have selected the latest innovations and all the key ingredients to create the next generation of products.

“I saw really amazing stuff, smart stuff, more than I expected,” said Giussy Bettoni, CEO Founder of C.L.A.S.S. regarding applications at the jury meeting. “I don’t think I saw any article without the word eco-friendly. At least we understand that something has changed, now is the time to inform in a different way. There is a lot of good work happening in the industry, that’s for sure.”

The international jury of textile professionals also took a harmonious approach when it came to the final selections during the jury meeting. The array of knowledge and know-how in all aspects of the sports and outdoors sectors from the jury members led to unanimous results for each sector.
