Panel discussion – Textiles 2023: Rethinking the thread that binds us

In this panel discussion during the Munich Fabric Start in 2023, Jasmien goes into conversation with Carl Tillessen (DMI), Marco Mantellassi (Manteco), moderated by Muchaneta Ten Napel (Shape Innovate / UN).

This panel aims to address the multifaceted nature of textiles in 2023, taking into account the rise in fabric innovation, the importance of sustainability, and the many challenges and opportunities associated with textile waste and recycling. 

We venture beyond the usual discussions about textiles and dive into the significant but lesser-explored subjects such as the impact of EU legislation on the textile industry, the myths surrounding harmful textiles, and the intricacies of the supply chain.
