Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN)– Bangladesh denim expo is set to begin on Thursday aiming to drive the denim industry towards the direction of circularity.

The 10th edition of Bangladesh Denim Expo is scheduled to be held in the capital on May 02-03, organized by Bangladesh Apparel Exchange (BAE).

“The theme of Circularity is to raise awareness and open debate about the need to embrace circular business practices. We live in a world where we are producing too much clothing product that is then discarded rather than reused, recycled or repurposed – this linear business model is unsustainable for the future”, Mostafiz Uddin, founder and CEO of Bangladesh Apparel Exchange (BAE) and Bangladesh Denim Expo, said in a statement.

“We’ve chosen Circularity as the theme of the expo because it is one of the most pressing topics facing the denim industry, and the wider apparel industry at present”, Mohiuddin Rubel, managing director of the BAE, explained.

A total of 63 exhibitors from 11 countries are going to exhibit in the much awaited show of denim manufacturers and buyers; where circularity will be pushed in a number of ways to bring positive changes in the denim industry of Bangladesh, they added.
