Sweden Textile Water Initiative

Re:think, Re:make, Re:use: STWI showcase

Wednesday 30 August | 14.00-15.30 | Room: FH Cabaret

At this year’s World Water Week STWI is hosting a Sustainable Fashion Show!
Through our event we want to demonstrate why the textile industry in key in achieving global sustainability and change the way people view sustainable fashion. The event will highlight several brands who are members of the STWI network and embrace the ‘RE:’ philosophy. The brands will show their clothing and share their statements and philosophy on sustainability.

Sweden Textile Water Initiative (STWI) helps leather and textile companies and factories reduce water, energy and chemical use in their supply chains. From 2014 onwards we have been working with more than 30 brands and 277 suppliers in Bangladesh, China, Ethiopia, India and Turkey.

The event gives you great opportunities for networking and the Showcase is also open for external visitors not registered at World Water Week.
