Textile ETP discusses marine-based textile materials at WTiN webinar

On 5 March 2024, our Secretary General Lutz Walter spoke at the World Textile Information Network (WTiN)'s 'Innovate: Marine-Derived Textiles' event to shed light on the potential of marine-based textile materials

Lutz delved into the pressing sustainability challenges facing the textile industry today. He emphasised the critical role of innovation in tackling these challenges, especially as we witness a surge in demand for textile materials coupled with evolving consumer behaviour. He also highlighted the textile and fashion sector's significance in upcoming EU legislations.

Lutz then shared insights on scaling marine-derived textiles, focusing on avoiding commodity competition, identifying niche markets, and smart scaling practices.
