New ITMA sector for recycled fibres and yarns
Tuesday, 28 January 2014

Milan - ITMA 2015 is to include a new sub-chapter covering recycled fibres and yarns, a decision driven by the growing commitment across the global textile and clothing sector to invest in increasingly sustainable and environmentally friendly production methods.

In 2011, the inaugural fibres and yarns sector featured 37 exhibitors from 14 countries and became the fifth most visited sector at the show. Following the exhibition, 94 per cent of exhibitors indicated that they would return to Milan in 2015 with many suggesting they would require increased booth sizes.
