Sustainable Sourcing with ReSOURCE


21. December 2020

Every season we see new sustainable novelties and extended eco ranges popping up among many of the collections showcased at our shows. As the majority of manufacturers who join us for any given season will say, if they hope to satisfy the global urgency for sustainable products, it is crucial to focus on sustainability along the whole supply chain.

Of course, we wouldn’t leave it to our visitors to find all the sustainable components they require among some 1000 manufacturers across all four halls in the MOC, Munich. This is why we established ReSOURCE in 2018 as the follower of the previous Organic Selection area to provide our guests with a convenient and efficient selection of responsible fabrics and trims. Making it possible to discover a diverse and fresh showcase of sustainable products all in one inspiring location. Our area for sustainable sourcing has grown into a space where teams discover new possibilities in the world of responsible fashion and textiles.

At each edition of ReSOURCE, visitors can meet with our experts from international certification organisations, IVN, GOTS and OEKO-TEX. The certification seals offered by the independent certifications ensure credibility and build consumer confidence that they are supporting sustainable textile production among many other things.
