The global textile show Texworld Evolution Paris will take place from 4 to 6 July 2022 at the Paris-Le Bourget Exhibition Center.

 



The shows Apparel Sourcing Paris, Avantex Paris, Leatherworld Paris and Texworld Paris trade fairs will concentrate their global offer for fashion brands, from ready-to-wear to luxury. This summer edition, the first one happening in July for the trade fairs of Messe Frankfurt France, will also see the flagship fair Texworld Paris celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and will mark the return of the major sourcing countries to Paris.

 



Some countries are expected to participate at near pre-crisis levels. With more than fifty exhibitors, the Turkish pavilion at Texworld Paris has doubled its size compared to last February's edition. Korea and Pakistan return in number, as is Indonesia, which will present a high-quality textile offer, especially in the field of silk and silk-like fabrics.

After an absence of two years, Taiwanese cotton manufacturers are making a comeback in the Elite area. Ethiopia will also be present, with some twenty companies led by two international organisations, Solidaridad and GIZ, which are particularly active in promoting new CSR oriented development models.

 



They also expect a strong presence of Indian exhibitors, who were heavily impacted by the Omicron wave this winter. Nearly 80 manufacturers, including some newcomers, will unveil a wide range of textiles, finished garments and fashion accessories will participate.




Part of the show's most sustainable offer, 30 fabric and garment suppliers that use natural materials and environmentally friendly processes while complying with sustainable social standards will participate the show.




 

Denim will be particularly visible this year, with major producing countries such as Turkey, China, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Nepal. A unique Chinese participation, China will also be present in Paris in July with more than 100 companies, despite the health constraints that still weigh on the country.
