Being the top leading packaging show for all luxuries, the 13th Luxepack Shanghai was held on 7th and 8th July 2021. Though the international visitors were still absent because of Covid, the intense 2 days show with over 200 exhibitors of all kinds did attract over 7000 domestic visitors from the field of jewelries and watches, wine and liquor, cosmetics and so many other merchandises which would require outstanding packaging solutions.
Beyond doubt, sustainability was the highlight of show. Exhibitors were very eager to present their GREEN options. The Winter Company, a world leader of covering materials, had launched their first GREEN leatherette option, NABUKA Recycled, a fine touch PU leather with a 100% recycled polyester extracted from ocean waste. This is the first step of the 100-year-old Swiss company to go GREEN on their leatherette options, in addition to their extensive paper products.
WSG Covering, the young company with key personnel serving the industry for years, also offered various GREEN products. Being aware of the market need, WSG newly offers non-solvent leatherette with recycled PET backing, 100% recycled PET woven suede, along with their current natural fiber collection such as silk, hemp and cotton. With proximity to the manufacturing bases, they target to provide sustainable, affordable and quick turn-around options to customers, who are increasingly concerned with the difficulties of international shipping.
While everyone exhibiting there was claiming how “green” they were, there might be confusions among some Chinese suppliers. A product which is REACH and ROHS compliant is not necessarily “environmental friendly”. Any plastic products could easily pass the above tests, but unfortunately these might not have any green element. It is certainly a mission of Belfino to bring our Asian partners to show the outside world their true strength and capabilities.
Belfino showcase will be displayed at Hong Kong International Home Textiles and Furnishing Show, Wanchai Convention Centre, Hong Kong from 26/7 to 29/7/2021. (https://event.hktdc.com/fair/intlsourcingshow-en/s/12926-General_Information/HKTDC-International-Sourcing-Show/FairDetails.html)
