2021 FOCUS TOPIC

The Sustainable Future of Nylon

The world of Nylon is changing rapidly! New restrictions, the concerns on pre-consumer recycling but also new solutions like biobased materials and mass balance polymers approach the market. There are new developments, different paths and many opportunities to help the industry achieve sustainability! What will that material look like in 2035, a hundred years after its invention? At Functional Fabric Fair, we will dive into the possibilities of the future of sustainability.

HELP REBUILD THE PLANET

The health of our planet and the sustainable future of fashion are topics that are incredibly important to the Functional Fabric Fair Team. In partnership with Trees for the Future, we pledge to plant TEN trees for every visitor who attends the Fair in Portland. As a plant-a-tree partner, company success translates to farmer and environmental success!
