Press Release

Welcome to Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition

Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics is a comprehensive platform to showcase your supreme apparel fabrics and accessories.


There are lots of business chances to meet potential customer, explore new market opportunities, learn about next season’s trends, and add value to your business. It is currently one of the biggest and most comprehensive apparel fabric and accessories exhibitions in the world.

With both the spring and autumn shows in Shanghai, this provides an excellent opportunity for overseas suppliers to build stronger relationships in the region and increase their presence in the market.

That was Intertextile Shanghai 2019

After already experiencing a significant increase in last year’s Spring Edition visitor numbers, and with muted reports coming from some industry events earlier in the spring / summer sourcing calendar, we were not expecting such a strong increase again this edition. However, it’s apparent that no matter the economic situation, the unrivalled scale and variety of Intertextile Apparel’s exhibitors means that trade buyers worldwide continue to choose this fair as their main spring / summer sourcing platform, year after year. We look forward to welcoming the global apparel industry back for their autumn / winter sourcing from 25 – 27 September, for our 25th anniversary.


Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Spring Edition 2019 – Impressions

Participants' comments

“We’ve had a lot of good customers come to our booth during the first two days, who’ve made sample orders. Our target is Chinese buyers, but we’ve also had European and Korean buyers come to our booth. As a Swiss brand, we have a high quality and price, and a very good standard of finishing, and domestic buyers recognise us for these things. We have also had a lot of customers come to our booth saying they saw us in the Trend Forum. Next time, we will have a bigger booth!”

“We have over 20 years of experience exhibiting with Intertextile, and we find new clients every time. Intertextile is an important bridge between Western and European products and the China market. That enables the Chinese buyers to source products that are not available in their local market. At the same time, it helps to expand our brand exposure in the Chinese market.”

“I’m really impressed with the quality of the exhibitors, and the high level of quality and certified fabrics here. I’m looking for sustainable alternative fabrics such as Tencel, Modal, organic cotton, BCI and I found them all here, so it’s been really good for eco-friendly products. Intertextile is different to other fairs as I can find anything I need here due to the number of suppliers. The price range here is very wide, so I can find all kinds of prices as well as qualities. This fair has been amazing, it will make my life a lot easier back in the office!”

“We have been sourcing from China since 2013. We can always find new suppliers here as well as our existing ones. It’s very easy to source here, the suppliers are flexible even for small orders. With such a wide range of products, we can find a lot to meet our needs here. We will place some orders while here this week, but we also use this fair to discover new things that we can evaluate back in the office. We tend to place orders every month so this fair gives us a good catalogue of options.”
