Texworld USA returns for Summer 2018 with a plethora of fabrics, findings and finishes for sourcing professionals while buyers will find a breadth of finished apparel manufacturers in the co-located Apparel Sourcing USA show.
Running July 23-25 at the Javits Center in New York, the all-under-one-roof concept will welcome more than 800 exhibitors with products that fall into 20 different categories of fashion apparel as well as home goods. In addition to the product resources, the shows are a platform for educational events like panel discussions, presentations and show floor discovery.
“Texworld USA together with Apparel Sourcing USA offers designers, sourcing professionals and anyone looking for manufacturing or private-label development a unique marketplace for networking, education and sourcing,” said show director Jennifer Bacon.

Texworld USA exhibitors will have a range of textiles on display, including cotton, denim lace, faux fur, jacquards, knits, linens and wool as well as fabrics that speak specifically to the performance market as well as eco-friendly collections.
Exhibitors from all over the globe will be on hand like Texollini, an innovative, vertically-integrated knitting mill advancing Made in America stretch fabrics like Lycra and spandex; Colombian mill Textile Lafayette, which is a one-stop-shop for high-tech polyester fabrics with divisions dedicated to sports, fashion, deco and uniforms; and Rich Silk Textiles, a fabric manufacturer based in Hong Kong that specializes in wovens for ladies’ garments, including silk, silk blends, viscose, cotton and polyester as well as quick-turn digital printing.

Our seminars and Textile Talks are perfect for anyone no matter their level in the business,” Bacon said.
