Sustainable Fabric Sourcing

The Future Fabrics Expo by the Sustainable Angle (London) Textile Fair

22nd June – 2nd July 2021

The below images are a selection of fabrics that were of particular interest when I attended The Future Fabric Expo in London, eager to source fabrics that are sustainable and ethical. The event required a small fee to attend and it certainly matched my expectations, there were so many amazing fabrics on offer and although the show was much smaller than the likes of PV or the London Textile fair it was great to know you didn’t have to hunt down the sustainable sections from the ranges with the benefit of it all being under one roof. I was interested in all there was to offer which included the information points with details on the latest technologies and emerging fabrics I specifically focussed on selecting fabrics that had small minimum order requirements. This unfortunately drastically reduces my options but I left pleased with the varying qualities, interest fabrics, print houses, trims, and novelty fabrics available.

In the interest of sustainability, you’re not expected to have your scissors out taking cuttings, instead, you’re asked to take photos of the fabrics and composition details along with the supplier contact information, so as you may notice I’ve tried my best to capture the drape of the fabric.

The next Future Fabric Expo will be held between 26 - 28th June 2023 @Magazine, London. Check the website below for further details.
