A. Sampaio is present at ISPO Munich, the main European clothing and sports equipment fair to be held until February 5th in an entirely digital format.
Being a regular presence at the event, the company from Santo Tirso – Portugal shows “fabrics that, in addition to performance and aesthetics, are also sustainable”, explains Miguel Mendes, Commercial Director of A. Sampaio & Filhos.
After last year having seen four of its fabrics selected for the ISPO Textrends forum, three of them for the Accelarated Eco segment, the company is back to betting on sustainability as an argument to seduce new and old customers. “We realized that the sports market is very sensitive to the environmental issue, one of the issues that was appreciated by the Textrends jury was biodegradability. And now we have articles that are of recycled origin and that at the end of their life cycle are biodegradable. All of this is valued. ”
This year, A. Sampaio has five products at ISPO Textrends: two in the top 10 and one selected in the Accelerated Eco category; an article selected in the Second Layer category; and another on the Outer Layer.
