Werner International Heimtex Impressions

The Werner International team was at Heimtex as always.  The fair was busy as usual, the show has appealed to around 70.000 visitors from 135 countries in January 2018, with 2,975 international exhibitors.

We have observed a growing trend towards bio and natural fibers, and a focus on sustainability, including the usage of recycled materials from second hand garments and PET bottles. The garment industry has been utilizing recycled PET bottles for polar fleece garments for many years. Now, we have observed that the home textile industry is also following this trend to make use of this technology to blend with the cotton fibers generated from second hand garments.
