From Waste to Yarn; an Adventure of Transformation
The adventure of yarn, starting from the times it was a waste and reaching until the final product, meets visitors at the exhibition hall called "From Waste to Yarn; an Adventure of Transformation" at the foyer. The stages showing how yarns made through recycling of plastic bottles and textile wastes reach the state of a final product are exhibited at the hall. Discovering how the recycled yarns produced by the leading companies in the sector turn into products we use in our daily life, visitors will be able to observe, respectively, first the plastic bottle or textile wastes, then the shredded versions of those products, then yarns made of shredded products and, lastly, the final product.

The 19th International Istanbul Yarn Fair that will last for 3 days can be visited between 10:00 and 18:00 on the first two days, and until 17:00 on the final day.
