Smart clothing plays a key role at Techtextil 2019. To what extent is the fashion industry really focusing on combining fabrics with technology, however?
Every two years, Techtextil in Frankfurt presents new products in the fields of technical textiles and nonwovens. The leading international trade fair, which takes place at the same time as its sister trade fair Texprocess at the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre, also demonstrates the versatility of textile materials with a special event on a changing main theme in each edition.
"Urban Living - City of the Future" is the theme of the special event at Techtextil 2019. The focus will be on how technical textiles can help meet the challenges of global urbanisation.
At Techtextil, issue 2017, the theme of the special event will be "Living in Space". The focus will be on the importance of technical textiles in space travel.
