As the first textile trade fair of the year, Heimtextil Frankfurt is the trend barometer for 2020. Green aspects were also high on the agenda on this, the 50th occasion the fair was held, from 7th - 10th January 2020. Products made from environmentally-friendly and certified materials and the avoidance of plastic packaging were probably the most popular topics.
The HEFEL stand in Hall 11.0, which was themed "Sleep! The Future Forum", generated great enthusiasm amongst visitors thanks to its extensive and increasingly deep organic product range. The switch to environmentally-friendly cotton carrier bags as packaging for the organic range was particularly welcomed. The resultant feedback and discussions at the stand were extremely interesting and promising.
