What Was New for Heimtextil's Latest Edition?

Heimtextil 2022 featured several new changes in its format. Among them was the new topic of the Trend Space. The focus topic was “tomorrow’s furnishing trends”. The Trend Space in Hall 4.0 showcased how the pandemic has changed the way people furnish their homes.

Another change was hosting the event in a hybrid format - digital services complemented the in-person aspect. They included online lectures as well as live streams. The sessions discussed subjects such as Heimtextil Trends. They additionally focused on the sustainability theme and the Future materials Library. Another service, Nextrade, served as a data and order-management portal. The portal provided 24/7 business-related services between dealers and suppliers. This allowed Nextrade to bring together demand and supply from the whole sector.

The Future Materials Library focused on six subject topics. These are:

  • “Regenerative crops”
  • “Remade fibres”
  • “Harvesting waste streams”
  • “What is changing?”
  • “Impact of the crisis”
  • “Sustainable colours”

Trends included Repurpose, Rewild, Reinforce, and Revive.

The subject theme “Regenerative crops” focused on regenerative practices in fibre agriculture. These included sustainable techniques that allow crops to return to the environment. Such methods enable topsoil to become nutrient-rich. They furthermore encourage biodiversity to grow and remove excess carbon from the atmosphere. Such approaches often result in the yielding of higher and more frequent harvests. Crops that, at present, use such methods include nettle, flax, and hemp. Fibres made from animals can also use such methods. “Remade fibres” focused on production methods that reuse waste textiles. This will help in reducing the amount of pollution caused by the discarding of waste fabrics. “Harvesting waste streams” showcased innovations in repurposing post-consumer and industrial waste. “Sustainable colour” showed slow, natural-dye processing substitute methods. Such methods focus on using new agricultural sources as well as lab-engineered bacteria. “What is changing” showcased changes in existing industry systems. “The impact of the crisis” showed the influence of the pandemic on textile innovations.

Heimtextil’s third format change involved a new site plan. This included a new Hall 12, which accommodated the Bed & Bath fashion segment. Additionally, the Interior, Architecture, Hospitality event was held in Hall 4.2.
