The overarching theme at Heimtextil 2023 is also sustainability. With the "Green Directory" of exhibitors and "Green Village", the platform for discussion with the seal providers, the fair offers important points of orientation in the jungle of the many sustainable offers. There will also be the popular "Green Tours", which will take interested visitors to curated exhibitors to learn more about their sustainability strategy and their products.
Last but not least, the impressive "Future Materials Library" will be presented again as part of the Trend Space at Heimtextil 2023. The international collection of material innovations in the interior sector is curated by the future agency FranklinTill, which is also responsible for the conception of the Trend Space at Heimtextil 2023. The spectacular design and trend area will set the scene there for Heimtextil Trends 23/24, which will be developed beforehand by the international design offices stijlinstituut amsterdam (Netherlands), FranklinTill (Great Britain) and SPOTT Design & Business (Denmark).
Under the title "Textiles Matter", Heimtextil Trends 23/24 – presented for the first time in Hall 9.0 – sets standards for the future-oriented and sustainable textile furnishings of tomorrow. The focus is particularly on the subject of the circular economy. By adding materials to a utilization cycle again and again, the need for new raw materials is reduced on the one hand and the production of waste on the other. In the technical cycle, inorganic materials, such as nylon, polyester, plastic and metal, can be recycled with no loss of quality. In the biological cycle, organic materials, such as linen and bast fibres, are returned to nature at the end of their useful life. This is the basis of the four trend themes: ‘Make and Remake’, ‘Continuous’, ‘From Earth’ and ‘Nature Engineered’. The design of the Trendareal itself was also based on predominantly recycled materials and elements as well as a strict waste avoidance strategy.
