A garden full of ideas: “Let it grow”

Anne Marie Commandeur and Ari Vervelde in "their" garden

The consciousness of the protection of nature, the earth and natural ressources has to grow. Therefore the team of this installation choose a garden as a symbol for growth in general. The “Green Exhibition – Let it grow” in Hall 11.1. on the entry facing the “Portalhaus” presents vital and bright colours. Here you can see hometextiles that have been produced sustainably. Exhibitors were invited in a public tender to send in a product that would meet the requirements of sustainability. The choice can now be seen in the garden of the “Green Exhibition – Let it grow”. It shows very well that this kind of textiles don’t need to be beige, brown or grey in colour. No, bedware, towels or carpets can be made in bright colours. And consumers can buy and use them with a good conscience. >>>
