Heimtextil Introduces Econogy For Sustainable Evaluation

Heimtextil 2024 is experiencing strong national and global demand across all product segments, with more than 2,600 exhibitors presenting their new products in Frankfurt am Main. The global trade fair for home and contract textiles is also introducing “Econogy,” a realignment of sustainable formats in the global Texpertise Network. Econogy aims to standardize evaluation criteria for sustainability across all Messe Frankfurt textile events, creating transparency for resource-saving products and exhibitors.

Heimtextil 2024 has seen robust registration figures across all product segments, with over 2,600 exhibitors participating, exceeding the number of exhibitors at the previous event. The event offers a comprehensive market overview of global trends in the home and contract textiles industry over four days.

Two new halls, Hall 5.1 for the Carpets & Rugs product segment and Hall 10.4 for Asian Selection exhibitors in the home textiles segment, are being added. Additionally, Hall 3 will serve as a creative hub for Heimtextil Trends 24/25 and exhibitors from the wall decoration, textile design and textile technology segments.

The Carpets & Rugs product segment is expanding, focusing on fitted, hand-made, custom-made carpets, machine-made woven carpets, mats, dirt-absorbing carpets, rugs and runners. This segment caters to international wholesalers, furniture and home furnishing stores, consumer markets, DIY and home improvement stores, specialist retailers and garden centres.

“Heimtextil Trends” is a key part of the event, translating megatrends into textile visions. In 2024, the focus is on “New Sensitivity,” with a spotlight on plant-based textile production, textile circularity through technology and the bio-engineered use of natural ingredients.

The “Asian Excellence” and “Asian Selection” segments have a strong presence at Heimtextil 2024, with top exhibitors from China/Hong Kong, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh.

Econogy is a realignment of sustainability activities that standardize evaluation criteria for sustainability across all Messe Frankfurt textile events, creating transparency and comparability for resource-saving products and exhibitors.

Fibres & Yarns, introduced in 2023, is returning in a larger capacity to Hall 4.0, providing a bundled offering for fabric and curtain manufacturers, weavers, product developers and designers. This extensive event offers exciting opportunities for businesses and professionals in the textile industry to explore the latest trends, products and sustainable practices in the field.
