March JAD meeting - Collectif Tricolor and Alliance du Lin et du Chanvre européens

20.03.2024 - 19h00

On Wednesday March 20 at 7:00 pm, JAD invites Pascal Gautrand, from Collectif Tricolor, and Julie Pariset, from Alliance du Lin et du Chanvre Européens, for this latest monthly conference dedicated to sustainable fashion.

The European Flax and Hemp Alliance pursues 3 missions: to inform members, manufacturers, brands and consumers, to support and defend the European ecosystem and know-how, and to promote European flax and hemp as the preferred sustainable premium fibers worldwide. It guarantees the traceability of linen fiber through its two certifications.

"Our ambition is clear: to make European flax and hemp the preferred sustainable premium fibers worldwide. To achieve this, our strategic trajectory revolves around three axes: growing our ecosystem; becoming the innovative, creative and sustainable international reference; and finally, guaranteeing quality and embodying desirability. Today, European flax and hemp are aligned with the demands of the times."

Bart Depourcq, President of the European Flax and Hemp Alliance

At this meeting, JAD invites you to discover the challenges facing these sectors, echoing the " Weaving the Future, Dressing the Body" exhibition.
