Kingpins Denim Fabric Trade Show Amsterdam

Tomorrow the denim fabric fair Kingpins will be held in Amsterdam again. Kingpins is a very successful two days denim fabric show. At the show you can explore and order denim fabrics from the best of the best denim mills worldwide. All the mills will show their latest fabric collections.

The show started in 2004 as a tiny jeans supply chain show in New York for like-minded members of the denim industry. They soon realized that the industry and interest was bigger than they thought and they expanded their denim shows to Hong Kong, China and Amsterdam next to New York.

Nowadays the shows are a must visit for everyone within the denimfield, from brand owners, designers, trend forecasters, media, etc. Next to the huge denim inspiration at the show from all the denim mills it’s also the place to be to meet and greet denimfriends.
