Learn more about the exhibition

The 36th edition of Milano Unica features new special areas and content projects, along with the creative proposals for the SS 2024 season presented by the textile and accessory producers.


The StartUp Textile Connection area will present the most interesting research projects, focused on the main challenges facing the textile industry: from the search for new raw materials to the digitalization of production processes, and from circular economy and sustainability insights to quality control.


Three Certifying Bodies will be present:

  • FSC ®ITALIA (Forest Stewardship Council ®) is an international, nonprofit NGO that has created a forest certification system aimed at the responsible management of forests and the traceability of derived products. For some years now FSC® has also expanded to the textile sector, offering informational support to exhibitor companies and their customers in their search for applications that enhance the value of sustainable forest management solutions.
  • ECOCERT: A leader in the certification of sustainable practices for nearly 30 years, ECOCERT supports the development of a more sustainable textile business by setting the goal of strengthening the bond of trust between suppliers, producers and consumers. Supporting more than 2,000 companies with the GOTS, GRS, RSD and RWS standards and also active in fair trade with Fair for Life, ECOCERT has increasingly developed environmentally friendly production processes to better manage the energy available and natural resources such as water, air and soil fertility, while promoting the most responsible sectors. All of these elements are essential to meet today's economic, social and environmental challenges and build tomorrow's world.
  • OEKO-TEXT: for nearly 30 years, OEKO-TEXT has been committed to maximum product safety and to ensure, for textile and leather companies, sustainable and socially responsible production. It is fundamental for OEKO-TEXT to uncover compliance violations, particularly violations of the stated Code of Conduct.

A new name and an ever-stronger mission, for ALLIANCE FOR EUROPEAN FLAX-LINEN & HEMP (formerly CELC), which since 1951 has been working to enhance the international visibility of Flax and Hemp from European countries. Western Europe is the world's leading producer of Flax fibers (France, Belgium and the Netherlands account for 80% of the overall production), whose technical and environmental qualities are a source of creative inspiration worldwide and offer new perspectives to industrial innovation, guaranteeing the traceability of Flax fiber through EUROPEAN FLAX® and MASTERS OF LINEN® certifications.

For the third season, Milano Unica re-confirms Modular, an ITS TAM project, involving students of the ITS TAM schools of Biella and Verona, promoted by Fondazione Cariverona and Upskill, a spin-off of the Ca' Foscari University of Venice.
