About The Sustainable Angle
The Future Fabrics Expo was conceived and created by Swiss not-for- profit organisation The Sustainable Angle. We were founded in 2010 to initiate and support projects that lower the environmental impact of industry and society. The fashion and textile industries are amongst the worlds most polluting, and thus became the main focus of our work. The Future Fabrics Expo was initiated to effect positive change within the industry by connecting and promoting innovators and suppliers of sustainable materials with fashion brands. In order to achieve this, we established a set of criteria and researching sustainable materials that meet this critera became our main task. We contextualize this activity with the provision of much needed educational information regarding sustainability in textiles, via workshops and informative events.
