Featuring the theme ‘ECO MEETS FASHION’, the ‘Taiwan Innovative Textiles and Accessories Gallery’ is staged by the Green Trade Project Office in collaboration with Taiwan Textile Federation. At the Gallery, located at the North Hall, Las Vegas Convention Center (Booth 64914), members of the Taiwan delegation present a wide variety of products with eco-friendly characteristics and innovative design.
‘Given the growing concerns for the environment, products manufactured using recycled materials or adopting a process with lower environmental impact have started to enter the global supply chain,’ said Li-Yen Ma, Division Chief of the Integrated Marketing Division at the Green Trade Project Office.
‘With continued dedication, Taiwanese textiles manufacturers have achieved remarkable results in the development of functional and environmentally friendly fabrics and related products over the years. We believe visitors to the Taiwan Pavilion will easily find the most suitable solutions and designs among the various product lines.’
