In order to strongly highlight its deep commitment to responsible innovation, Bemberg™ strategically decided to exhibit within the Smart Creation Area, the key research and sourcing space for those looking for new generation of sustainable solutions.
For more than 80 years the story of Bemberg™ has shaped a new future for smart innovation through heritage, research, knowledge and expertise to deliver the new face of Bemberg™: an original material for modern living. Made by Asahi Kasei, the company is the sole maker of this one-of-a-kind, matchless, high-tech natural material, with a unique and precious touch and feel.
Here in Paris the company speeds up on its responsible profile and showcases the unique range of materials developed by its premium partners within the Smart Creation area, an informative, educational, visionary and multimedia space where exhibitors, designers, buyers and fashion brands can experience and truly visualize the progress the industry is making in terms of responsibility.
