It's vital that Modefabriek keeps pace with the current transition in the fashion industry, which is why, together with Manufy, we are adding a segment to The Sustainable Stop at Modefabriek. On 23 & 24 January 2022, we will be offering sustainable European manufacturers a stage to share their expertise, quality and possibilities with brands.
At the moment, finding the right sustainable European producer can be quite a difficult task. Searching on the internet or social media may have been the best choice until now, but these options can be very time-consuming, they can also lead you to the wrong producer. In our role as the epicentre of the fashion industry, together with Manufy, we want to lower the treshold for local production, and to support clothing brands in their search, with is an unknow territory for many companies.
What is Manufy
Manufy is the first purchasing platform that facilitates sustainable clothing production in the EU, founded by four Dutch entrepreneurs. They want to connect buyers, manufacturers and freelancers from the EU in an efficient, transparent and above all sustainable way. In this way, they hope to strengthen the European economy, create more support for local sourcing, provide quality over quantity and help businesses of all sizes to grow.

Manufy brings several sustainable manufacturers to Modefabriek, so that they can present themselves to the visitors at The Sustainable Stop. Michiel Dicker, co-founder of Manufy: 'We are proud of this collaboration with Modefabriek because we connect offline and online, and together with all partners of The Sustainable Stop we can showcase what the future of fashion can look like!'
