Manufacturers and suppliers in France are some of the oldest in Europe with a distinct focus on the clothing and textile industry. Long known as a hub for European fashion and design, French suppliers also equate for a large percentage of technical textile manufacturing including farm and shade sails, boats and automotive textiles and fibreglass for construction.
Medical technical medical textiles are being produced widely by French manufacturers with many local regions like Rhone becoming hubs for entire industries. Synthetic fabrics are further being developed in France in an attempt to research better ways to make the textile industry more sustainable heading into the future. Combining both better ways of creating traditionally naturally occurring materials with the use of more synthetic materials helps to make progress in the sustainable sourcing of materials.
