Defining the future of sustainable performance: SENSIL® will be exhibiting its complete portfolio at this fall’s functional fabric fair


“Is it better to evolve or revolutionize?” The answer could be in good quality discussions when companies  work together to change the future of the textile industry into a more sustainable one. SENSIL® will be exhibiting the latest sustainable high-tech sports apparel designed for a better future at Functional Fabric Fair, at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, November 1-2nd.

Recently, changes in our world have become more noticeable, partly due to increased communications constantly flooding our lives with all sorts of inspiration and newness. The shifts come from a more conscious consumer and the detail-oriented mindsets of those seeking meaningful choices and experiences. The trend is most evident in the outdoor and sports industries, where products should deliver performance and durability without impacting style and sustainability. As we navigate these times of dynamic change, a fundamental question arises: “Is it better to evolve or revolutionize?” Evolution involves improving existing products without significant changes, while revolution entails creating almost entirely new categories. The Functional Fabric Fair, powered by PERFORMANCE DAYS, taking place at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland on November 1-2, 2023, is a platform where this, and many other questions, will be explored by people who are revolutionizing the industry.

As the apparel industry continuously evolves, designers, product managers, and material managers must stay ahead of the curve. FFF will be a unique opportunity for attendees to get a sneak peek into the industry’s future and gain an early advantage in incorporating these cutting-edge materials into their designs. In addition, the Functional Fabric Fair will also offer a series of expert-led talks covering a wide range of topics from sustainability in textiles to the role of technology in shaping the future of performance apparel. Designing and producing responsible apparel presents numerous challenges for companies, but access to good quality information and collaboration are both keys to success on the sustainability path.

Circling back to the question at the beginning of this article, the sustainability path and the design of life-changing solutions that lead to better decisions, whether achieved through evolution and transformation or created from revolution and innovation, represent a crucial commitment for apparel businesses. Attendees at the Functional Fabric Fair will find themselves at the forefront of this transformative debate and will have the opportunity to explore the possibilities of evolution and revolution, both valid approaches to shaping the future of performance apparel.
