DEFINING THE FUTURE OF PERFORMANCE
FUNCTIONAL FABRIC FAIR PORTLAND—powered by PERFORMANCE DAYS® will launch in the Fall of 2019 as a standalone event addressing a market need for a curated sourcing platform dedicated to outdoor, lifestyle and active wear functional textiles and accessories. The October, west coast edition will feature products and technologies that will enter the market for the Winter 2021 season.
The fair is open – free of charge – to verified designers, product, purchasing or material managers looking to source fabrics and accessories for outdoor, sportive performance and lifestyle apparel.
Inspired by Nature – From Fibers to Green Treatments
After many years of inaction, everybody is jumping on the bandwagon in terms of sustainability and ecological responsibility. Our best choice is just around the corner: Sustainable fabrics, local production and gentle natural finishings are becoming increasingly important. As a result, people are turning to authentic natural materials, the simplest way to care about our environment: Garments made of natural fibers are predominantly biodegradable, while the brushed inside of a wool-, hemp- or Tencel sweater refrains from releasing hazardous micro-plastic into the sea.
