The Maroc in Mode-Maroc Sourcing 2018 trade fair, which will be held on October 11 and 12, 2018, in Marrakech, will accentuate the growing Moroccan textile industry. Around 200 exhibitors will participate in the segments of fast fashion, denim, knitting, tailoring, lingerie, workwear, leather good, shoes, and accessories of the leading textile trade show.
A project titled ‘Circular Textile Cluster’ will be presented at the show. It is a project for the development of sustainable production in which high sums are invested in Morocco. The companies Hallotex from Tangier, Textil Santanderina and Vich Industrial from Barcelona, and the Austrian Lenzing Group are involved in the project. The project involves the construction of a spinning mill that processes recycled fibres and a recycling plant in Tangier that is expected to recycle over one million kilograms of textile waste per year. The entire production chain is worked sustainably until the recycling of textile waste, according to a media statement.
The Moroccan Denim Cluster (MDC), also represented at the Maroc in Mode-Maroc Sourcing, together with its partners, will implement a support programme for denim companies, enabling them to make the necessary changes so that the Moroccan denim industry is recognised as a ‘sustainable industry’ and one to ensure a sustainable economy for future generations. Thirty exhibitors participating in the fair are members of the MDC.
As an international exhibitor at Maroc in Mode-Maroc Sourcing for the first time is Kilim Denim from Istanbul, a company that makes major investments in sustainable denim production and has developed, among other things, the Raw For The Oceans collection in collaboration with G-Star, for a new generation of denim and clothing recycled plastic waste from the sea is used in an innovative way.
