The 16th edition of Maroc in Mode-Maroc Sourcing show will be held from October 11-12, 2018 at Moulay Hassan racetrack in Marrakesh, Morocco. The show will host about 200 exhibitors from fast fashion, denim, knitting, tailoring, lingerie, workwear, leather goods, shoes and accessories segments.
This year’s edition will include the launch of the Circular Textile Cluster, a project focused on the development of sustainable production, an issue many Moroccan enterprises are keen on. The project involves construction of a spinning mill that processes recycled fibers and a recycling plant in Tangier expected to recycle over one million kilograms of textile waste per year. The entire production chain aims to follow sustainable standards starting from the recycling of textile waste.
Among other novelties, the Moroccan Denim Cluster will present a support program aimed at helping denim companies making all the necessary changes to ensure a more sustainable future. Thirty exhibitors participating in the show are members of MDC, which also participates in the Paris textile shows.
An international exhibitor to debut in this edition is Kilim Denim, a Turkish denim manufacturer involved in major investments in sustainable denim production. Among its various past projects was Raw For The Oceans, the innovative denim collection launched by G-Star and made with recycled plastic waste from the sea.
