FutureFinders spots key emerging trends and the products on Global Sources that drive these trends.
The first FutureFinders episode focused on the latest developments in the ever-evolving world of fashion.
Next, we examine techwear, a new term that is rapidly rising in popularity in the industry. Techwear is “clothing that serves a purpose over and above simply covering your body”, according to Fashion Windows.
Fashion Windows cited heat insulation as one of the purposes of techwear, and that’s exactly what a growing number of Global Sources Verified Suppliers have set their R&D sights on.
The jacket is powered by lithium batteries. MOQ is 20 pieces while delivery lead time is between seven and 14 days.
Techwear, however, is not all about function as it also allows designers to add a touch of whimsy and flair to their creations.
This is best seen in the use of LEDs in fashion such as the latest iteration of Balenciaga’s Track Trainer, which has an LED embedded in the heel.
Verified Suppliers on GlobalSources.com, meanwhile, are incorporating LEDs in a wide and varied selection of fashion accessories.
Seekas’ fur scarf, for instance, has an 8-color RGB LED strip built into it. The party scarf features four different lighting modes and changes colors automatically. It runs on a rechargeable Li-polymer battery.
Christmas bonnets are not the only type of headgear bitten by the LED bug. This bright pink statement piece from Jinjiang Jiaxing resembles a fedora and uses paillettes with diodes. It is designed for children and is made of polyester.
The products featured here are just a few of the hundreds of tech-infused apparel and fashion accessories on GlobalSources.com, the go-to for the best sourcing experience, which starts with finding the right supplier.
Supplier evaluation is no joke, especially in this day and age where almost any enterprising individual can claim to be a manufacturer by simply building a website.

Meanwhile, Verified Suppliers whose business scope allows them to manufacture goods are classified as Verified Manufacturers and carry a combination of the M and tick mark.
