Future Fabrics Expo

Future Fabrics Expo is a trade event created by Sustainable Angle, a not-for-profit organisation based in London. To date, Future Fabrics Expo is the world's largest trade show with the aim of inspiring the industry and showcasing the best sustainability-focused material options throughout the supply chain.

Located in a new and larger location in the Future Fabrics Expo, the Alliance booth offers an interactive knowledge-sharing space that highlights the diversity and creativity of
European Flax™ and Masters of Linen™ fabrics.

As an agro-creative organisation, the Alliance promotes European Flax grown in Western Europe, more specifically in France - Ile de France and Hauts de France – and also in Belgium and the Netherlands. This very specific area accounts for three quarters of the world's Flax production. This makes it possible to promote the high-quality production with the certifications of origin created by the Alliance. As the fashion and textile industries are among the most polluting in the world, Sustainable Angle devotes its activities to this issue, suggesting ways in which companies can improve, notably through solutions presented at the Future Fabrics Expo.It brings together more than 10,000 companies in 16 European certifications.

Western Europe is the world's leading producer of Flax-Linen fibre (France, Belgium and the Netherlands account for three quarters of this production).
