It's that time of year again, Texworld USA is around the corner and you should be there because FOMO. But seriously, here's why it's beneficial for your team to attend Texworld this January.
1 | Fabric Swatch Shopping
Forget sheep! You could count swatches to go to sleep you see so many! If you're a fan of saving time, nix the numerous fabric meetings and swatch book messengers, and see them all in one place in one day in over 14 different fabric categories.
2 | Direct Communication
Nothing beats face to face meetings. Ask direct questions about the mill house and their environmental practices for producing their fabrics. Do they offer natural dyes? Digital printing? Do they hold ethical or organic certifications?
3 | Education & Inspiration
Over the 3 days of Texworld there are multiple "Textile Talks" ranging from how to start up a fashion line to how to source sustainably and trace your supply chain. Bring a notebook, mark your calendar, divide and conquer if you need to, there will be some great classes - - Including one by THR3EFOLD!
Attend the THR3EFOLD Textile Talk
THR3EFOLD Founder & CEO Jessica Kelly will be leading a panel on Transitioning the Industry to Sustainability. In this discussion we will learn how you can make small choices that allow your team to be more sustainable and support a more ethical supply chain.
