Simon GmbH will attend the trade fair equipped with a fully-automatic textile folding machine. “The T-Apparel is part of the portfolio of our Belgian partner Dekken Machinery. Another highlight is also the automatic textile printing carousel from the model series Wise by our Portuguese partner KTK,” said Michael König, managing director of Simon GmbH, about the company’s presence at the trade fair.

There are also many new companies among the exhibitors. Lagerkarton Systembox GmbH produces sustainable storage cartons for textiles—so not only is the company’s participation in TecStyle Visions in itself a première, but their product has also never been in the exhibitor portfolio before.

“Especially in this day and age, environmental awareness is omnipresent. Sustainable storage for textiles will soon be unavoidable,” explained Sebastian Welp, managing director of Lagerkarton Systembox GmbH. “We are delighted about the trade fair in Stuttgart. We expect to meet many of our customers and to inspire many of them with our storage solution.”

Pigment.Inc BV will also be exhibiting, showcasing its new DTG/DTF Q series machines. These machines can be used to finish both synthetic and natural fabric types. “We are looking forward to meeting professional visitors and industry colleagues in person at the trade fair,” said Robert Wade, editorial content at Pigment.Inc.

Kornit Digital is another manufacturer in direct-to-garment. This company will be presenting its energy-on-demand smart curing system that allows for the production of high-quality, durable textiles. Visitors will also have the chance to view the digital Max technology textile printing machines in action. Direct-to-garment and direct-to-film are currently highly popular in the textile finishing industry and, besides Pigment.Inc and Kornit Digital, there are also many other manufacturers—but also traders—presenting the related machinery.

Sustainability is at the forefront of industry-relevant keywords. One company that is increasingly incorporating this topic into its trade show presence is Stanley & Stella. “In all our collections, we use GOTS-certified bio-cotton as well as recycled cotton, recycled polyester, recycled nylon, each of them GRS-certified. Sustainability is therefore a matter of course for almost every item at our stand,” said Michel Hublet, head of sustainability at Stanley & Stella.

Result Clothing incorporates sustainability into its trade fair concept. “Besides new products, at TecStyle Visions 2023 we are also focussing on products from our Recycled assortment. We look forward to a busy show with a focus on sustainability and quality business leads from all over Europe,” declared Sara Sanders Smith, director at Result Clothing.

It is where visitors can learn more about fair trade, sustainable products and eco-friendly manufacturing processes in the textile finishing sector. They can also make their own sustainable T shirts.
