Textile Exchange Sustainability Conference in Hamburg

The Textile Sustainability Conference, organised annually by Textile Exchange, is a place where industry experts from around the world gather to share progress, knowledge, and best practices. This year’s event took place from 4-7 October 2016 in Hamburg, Germany and focused on how the industry will accelerate the growth of Preferred Fibers and Materials. Featuring progressive sessions led by the world’s foremost thought leaders and hands-on learning and networking opportunities, the attendees left inspired, equipped and with a network of connections to produce positive impacts.

Mantis World’s CEO Prama Bhardwaj hosted an Open Space session about sourcing from Africa during the Organic Cotton Round Table (OCRT) event on Thursday. The annual meeting, following the Textile Sustainability Conference, is a global stakeholder platform that supports and brings together the organic cotton community to be inspired, mobilized, and equipped to act. The OCRT has on-going Task Forces for Business Models, Seed & Soils, and Consumer Engagement, as well as an Innovation Lab that seeks out and celebrates new ideas in organic cotton.
