Strongly represented: Sustainability at Heimtextil 2023
Are you interested in exhibitors with sustainable products or would you like to find out what opportunities the industry has in store for sustainable development? With the exhibitor directory “Green Directory” and the platform for exchange with seal providers, the “Green Village”, Heimtextil offers important orientation in the jungle of the many sustainable offers.
For the first time, you will also find exhibitors in the “Green Village” who are completely committed to the theme of sustainability. Another new highlight is a joint upcycling project with the Frankfurt School of Clothing and Fashion. The cooperation with the fashion school shows how fashion can be made from old jeans and thus meets the trend theme of the circular economy.
Be there and take part in the popular fair tours “Green Tours” to curated exhibitors to learn more about their sustainability strategy and their products. The tours are led by the expert Bernd Müller from Consulting Service International Ltd., who brings an important and independent outside perspective to the dialogue.
NEW: Interior.Architecture.Hospitality TALKS & TOURS
For interior architects, architects and hospitality experts, Heimtextil 2023 will once again offer a high-quality programme with Interior.Architecture.Hospitality.

A variety of different offers with top-class experts awaits you.
Do not miss the TALKS & TOURS by world architects with Dorothee Maier, meierei innenarchitektur | design, who will be giving a guided tour of Heimtextil on the subject of “Actually, why not for a lifetime?” Find out how high-quality materials age well and thus stand up to the throwaway culture and also recycling.
As part of the TALKS & TOURS by world architects, Natalie Pichler, OFFORA GmbH, will report on the subject of “little – less – best?” on how materials that are little, but intelligently used can be applied in a way that saves space, materials and energy and is efficient for users and the environment.
With the brand new edition of the Interior.Architecture.Hospitality LIBRARY material library, Heimtextil offers you a curated selection of functional textiles. The properties “flame-retardant”, “sound-absorbing”, “light-resistant”, “antimicrobial” and “water-repellent” will be the focus in 2023.
In addition, design and innovation in the type of textile construction are important criteria for the selection of products by a panel of experts. The textiles will be marked with the name of the exhibitor and the stand number and presented at Heimtextil in Hall 4.0. The Interior.Architecture.Hospitality LIBRARY is available online at www.textile-library.com/ all year round.

Sustainable materials of tomorrow: Future Materials Library
The impressive ‘Future Materials Library’ will again be presented 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.
There, the spectacular design and trend area will stage Heimtextil Trends 23/24, which will be developed beforehand by the international design agencies stijlinstituut amsterdam (Netherlands), FranklinTill (Great Britain) and SPOTT Design & Business (Denmark).
The ‘Future Materials Library’ refers to the four main themes of this year’s overarching Heimtextil Trend theme ‘Textiles Matter’: Make and Remake, Continuous, From Earth and Nature Engineered. Together, these inspiring themes encourage manufacturers and consumers alike to focus on a more sustainable production cycle – highlighting the creativity, innovation and positivity of moving from a linear ‘take, make, throw away’ system to a circular system where materials are reused and stay in use for longer.
Stop by and experience sustainable materials of tomorrow!
