FIND NEW BUSINESS WITH PROMISING BUSINESS CONTACTS

The Circular Textile Days is a business event that offers a great opportunity for meeting new partners in the sustainable textile business and for discovering and discussing innovative circular textile solutions.

The diversity of companies at the Circular Textile Days is great. For example, there are companies that focus on developing recycled yarn, circular design, reusing materials, product passports and assessing other companies for circularity. Among them are established names as well as young start-ups. In addition, visitors also include students, people who have been in the business for a long time or, on the contrary, brand owners, retailers or consumers who want to start circularity but don't know where to start.
