Mumbai: The two parallel exhibitions: Techtextil and Texprocess 2017 will take place in India, Russia and Ethiopia later this year. Organized by Messe Frankfurt, the exhibitions have a world view to promote technical textiles of the future generations with an eye on smart textiles as a growing prospect. Techtextil focuses on the future of technical textiles with a vision to encompass the growing population, combat climate change, employ recycling of waste, and use existing resources wisely. On the other hand, the Texprocess 2017 envisaged the inclusion of cutting-edge technologies for design, cutting, IT, sewing, joining, embroidery, textile dressing, finishing and logistics. The new entrants in the list of realms handled by Texprocess 2017 include concentration of bonding and separating, CMT (cutting, making, trimming), CAD/CAM and printing.
