After difficult months for the textile sector, because of the closure of companies due to the Covid-19 pandemic, on 8 and 9 September 2020 Italy hosted the first textile fair, in total safety.

During Milano Unica, companies have shown the quality of Made in Italy. A quality that accompanies design and innovation with a commitment to textile production that reduces waste and the use of resources.

Sustainable creativity on display

Also in this 31st edition, Milano Unica has dedicated an entire area of the fair to the concept of Sustainability. In the special hall, the textile companies showed samples of their collections made through a reduced environmental impact.

In this way, the Italian textile industry has drawn attention to quality production, in line with the new trends FW 21-22 and, at the same time, attention to the environment and low consumption of resources.

Companies rely on Textile Certifications

The textile producers at the fair also presented fabrics and fashion accessories with specific sustainability certifications related to the selection of raw materials or types of processing.

In the stands, the most common certification among the exhibitors were Global Organic Textile Standard and Oeko Tex, while the most used materials are of organic origin, recycled or with reduced environmental impact.

The new trends of the companies belonging to Consorzio Detox

During the two days of Milano Unica, Consorzio Detox was represented by three of its member companies: Furpile Idea, Marini Industrie and Texmoda Tessuti. The companies participated in the fair bringing on display their new collections.

“United to start again”, therefore, is the message that Milano Unica wanted to convey to the entire textile sector, opening the doors of the first fair in Italy after the lockdown due to covid 19.
