These fabrics are specially chosen by the PERFORMANCE FORUM JURY; this TABLE is dedicated to a changing topic per event. The JURY consists of experts from fabric technology, sports design, independent experts from universities, textile consulting managers and purchasing departments from different outdoor brands.

Jury's Pick May 2019

This category shows in many ways how fashionable and beautiful the functional fabrics can be. The surfaces offer many variations – from shiny or oily to silky and velvety to a woolly look. Plenty of jacquards are on display, including crinkle- and crush variants. Three-dimensional structures, of staggered heights and depths, intensify the interplay with light and shade, bringing the fabrics to life. Despite all fashion aspects, function and sustainability do not come up short.

Jury's Pick November 2018

This is all about the Focus Topic: WATER – OUR RESPONSIBILITY. Unfortunately, the textile industry is considered as one of the largest consumers of water resources and one of the worst polluters. But for Winter 2020, the mills are demonstrating several new developments in the area of "water conservation". More and more synthetic fibers are dyed in water-free processes, using methods called "dope dye" or "solution dying." Furthermore, there is now a water-free DWR treatment. Also important: Some manufacturers are providing new fleece fabrics, where the roughened side is made from biodegradable tencel or lyocell, which does not release microplastics so easily.
