5 Reasons You Can’t Miss Première Vision Sport at the NW Materials Show this August!

Updated: Oct 26, 2022

The last time we were all together was August 2019. Now, our industry is ready, willing, and able to attend our in-person shows. Brands are slowly going back to office work and are eager to reconnect. Suppliers are ready to present their most innovative materials, components, and services at the most important sourcing show in the world.

Come See, Touch and Feel Materials again. We look forward to seeing you ALL soon.

This August, the world-renowned fashion trade show firm, Première Vision will appear with one of the footwear and performance industry’s longest-running and most influential trade shows, The NW Materials Show, to create an event unlike any other!

The Materials Show & Première Vision Sport event takes place on August 10th & 11th in Portland, Oregon. Première Vision Sport will showcase a specially-curated selection of fifty Active and Performance Sports Apparel exhibitors from Asia, America, and Europe. It’s a designer’s dream, giving you access to textile vendors, pattern designers, and fabricators you can only find in Europe — all face-to-face with you in the U.S. It’s one-stop sourcing that’s perfect for makers and designers of leggings, sports apparel, performance wear, outdoor gear, and athleisure fashion. Here are five things you won’t want to miss!

(Note: PV will only be at the Portland show).


Première Vision’s offerings include an array of fabrics like knits, wovens, synthetics and naturals, 3D fabrics, free cut, bi-stretch, 4 way-stretch, super light-weight poly, fine denier with lamination and coating, cooling fabrics, nano-chemicals, performance finishings and more — along with customized development possibilities!


Meet manufacturers of zippers, badges, acrylic stones, resin printing technology, seamless bonding, compression bonding, and more.


You’ll find easy-care, stain-resistant, anti-UV, anti-bacterial, climatic, water-repellent, high-resistance, waterproof, reflecting, breathable, chlorine-resistant, fast-drying, thermal, and windproof materials! Perfect for sports apparel, outdoor and performance wear.


Source from original prints and patterns to buy, digital printing, sublimation facilities, exclusive designs, custom prints, and reworked vintage.


To showcase Premiere Vision’s offerings and the Materials Show side-by-side they have expanded the show floor by 25%! That means more vendors, more materials, and more choices for you!

About the Book

"Conscious design is a philosophy used at the Peterman Design Firm. We use it to create brands and products that restore and sustain our planet. The Peterman Method for conscious design is the culmination of Ian’s 15+ years working in product development and Jessica’s 20 years in working as a healer and studying regenerative technologies and tools for both people and our planet. Together, we’ve written this book to lay out a culmination of our combined experiences. Our goal is to help other people start looking at the world, and design, in a more conscious way."
