China's Prosperity Textile shifts to Better Cotton

Chinese denim mill Prosperity Textile will begin using Better Cotton for all its lightweight cotton denim fabrics beginning with the Spring/Summer 2017 season, according to media reports.

The Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) is a nonprofit organization that seeks to bridge the cotton supply chain from farmer to retailers by providing global standards for sustainable cotton production.

“We believe sustainable cotton is what every denim mill should use, and we value the importance Better Cotton has for both farmers and the industry in general,” Leo Ku, president of Prosperity Textile, said in a statement.

Prosperity Textile can produce up to 2 million yards per month of lightweight denim, including shirting and dress-weight fabrics. According to the company, there will be no change in the price with the shift to Better Cotton.

“Prosperity Textile's ambitious target is an example that we hope will inspire other textile mills to be a part of the initiative,” said Paola Geremicca, BCI director of communications and fund-raising. “Their support, and the support of our members, helps us to establish a more sustainable cotton sector.”

Andrew Olah, chief executive of Olah Inc., which manages Prosperity's US sales and produces the Kingpins denim trade show, said more retailers and brands are looking to source sustainable cotton. In addition to Olah Inc., Levi Strauss & Co., G-Star Raw,Marks & Spencer, Tommy Hilfiger, Adidas, H&M, IKEA, VF, Inditex and Nike are members of BCI.

“More and more of our customers are seeking fabrics made with sustainable cotton, and Better Cotton is one excellent option,” Olah said.

Founded in 1995, Prosperity Textile is a vertically integrated denim production facility with the capacity to produce 60 million yards annually. The company provides research and development, design, and manufacturing services to customers worldwide.

Located in Shaoguan, China, the company dyes, weaves and finishes its fabrics in weights ranging from 5 oz. to 15 oz. for menswear, womenswear and childrenswear. In addition to BCI cotton, Prosperity also produces fabric from other sustainable fibres including Tencel, hemp, recycled materials and organic cotton. (SH)
