When fashion meets the wild, high quality textiles are born
ITMA 2023 will be held in Milan from June 8 to 14, 2023. As a global supplier of sustainable wood fiber products, know H7 will showcase its solutions for the apparel sector under the slogan ‘Fashion meets Forest’ at stand D203 with sublimation papers and its soluble paste used in the production of textile fibers under the Verve brand.
Fabrics made from sapphi soluble paste stand out for their breathability, color fastness, softness, drape, absorbency and biodegradability.
How can the wood fiber sector contribute to making the apparel market more sustainable? Chubby is keen to answer this question at ITMA and has created a ‘Knowledge Trail’ for visitors to explore under the banner ‘Fashion meets Forest’. Visitors to the stand will be able to follow the path from wood through cellulose and fiber to finished yarn and printed garments.
