Sustainable living for all: conscious handwork!

"Green" products have now established themselves in many consumer areas - even in the handwork sector! Sustainable products are an integral part of the supply chain of many trading companies. Sustainable products are evolving from the trend to self-evident.

The more sustainable product variants become established, the greater the need for orientation. We would like to follow this up and will be giving an insight into the green segment again on the special event area "h + h cologne goes green!". At the presentation platform in Passage 2/3, exhibitors of the h + h cologne show a selection of their products, which consider social as well as ecological points of view.


Statements Exhibitors 2018

"The h+h cologne goes green area places the ever more important topic of sustainability in the foreground and as the only GOTS-certified manufacturer of knitted fabrics h+h cologne goes green offers us the ideal presentation area for the retail trade. In recent years, the h+h cologne goes green area has convinced with its appealing and professional presentation of sustainably produced fabrics and haberdashery. We are looking forward to a great h+h goes green area in 2018, which will focus on the high relevance of sustainable production."

"As an exhibitor from the very beginning, we are looking forward to the upcoming h+h trade fair with positive expectations. The topics of sustainability and ecology have always been of great importance to us as a German manufacturer. Innovative button materials such as liquid wood buttons made from 100% renewable raw materials, lead-free colours and materials as well as recyclable product packaging underline this claim."

"h+h cologne proved last year to be a very good platform for us to present our company and fabrics. A very special highlight is the exhibition area - h+h cologne goes green. This platform enables companies such as fabrilogy to present their particularly environmentally and socially responsible textile production. Once again this year we expect a very large response from the trade public."

"By presenting our products on the h+h cologne goes green exhibition area, we would like to arouse the visitors' interest in this topic and ensure that they come to our stand to obtain information and order. Sustainability is at the forefront of our collection, Schoeller Süssen focuses on environmentally friendly produced yarns made of natural fibres."

"As a manufacturer of GOTS-certified yarns, we are pleased about the growing demand for sustainable wool. h+h cologne goes green gives us the opportunity to present our organic wool where merchants are looking for ecological wool."

"Once again this year, we will be happy to participate in this important trade fair event for the environment. By participating, we want to show how many sustainable products there are in all of our collections."

We are a global player. But we certainly do not play with the future of our planet. This is why we have developed an environmentally friendly sewing thread. Naturally in well-known Gütermann quality. Its production requires less energy and produces less CO2, and you are already familiar with its outstanding proximity: thanks to Gütermann's Micro Core Technology®. Convince yourself and visit us - we will be present at this year's h+h goes green!"

"With our participation in this project we want to make a clear statement for the use of sustainable products. In addition to the Oekotex certification, our products contribute to making clothing longer wearable and thus counteract the throwaway society. We hope that our participation will help us to raise the profile of this important issue even further."

"Mettler® is the strong, international trademark of the AMANN Group. We are the first sewing thread and embroidery thread manufacturer worldwide to participate in the detox campaign of the environmental protection organisation GREENPEACE, which has launched a global detoxification programme "Detox Our Future". Accordingly, an extended catalogue of criteria was developed for the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® certification in accordance with Appendix 6, in which the limit values, especially for the so-called "detox groups of substances", were greatly increased. Nearly all our yarns have now been tested and certified in accordance with the strict requirements of Appendix 6."

"We have been participating to the h+h cologne goes green area since the very first edition because we believe in this project of sustainabilty for a better environmemnt. We are strongly fighting for high quality and checked productions notwithstanding the trends of low cost and imported materials. The topics of attention and quality have always been important to us, and with the professional  presentation of the exhibiton we wish that all trade customers and  then the final users will understand the importance of certified productions."

"10 years Opal Schafpate - if that's no reason to celebrate. In 2008 the project Opal Schafpate was founded by our father Wolfgang Zwerger. The idea behind it is a continuous improvement of the wool quality of Merino land sheep, the support of migratory sheep farming and the preservation of the unique juniper heathland of the Swabian Alb. Over the last 10 years, the quality of virgin wool has demonstrably improved considerably, so that the German shepherds were again able to demand a better wool price and also led to jobs being secured."

"All Bio Mondial Yarns in 100% organic wool or 100% organic cotton have obtained certifications from ICEA (Environmental and Ethical Certification Institute) according to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and by OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 “Confidence in Textiles”. These certifications identify a natural textile product with environmental sustainability requirements and a high level of production eco-technology, and guarantee that the yarns (tested and controlled in each and every processing step) are free of harmful substances."
