Colombo to host International Summit on Textile Coloration

The International Summit on Textile Coloration 2017: Colouring the ‘Emperors New Clothes’ will tackle some of the difficult questions around technical innovation and environmental sustainability within the textile colouration industry. It will be held in Colombo, Sri Lanka on March 8, 2017. Multiple sessions will also be carried out during the summit.

The summit to be organised by the SDC International Limited will give participants a chance to meet the people who are driving the change and get to know the people who have used new innovations. Sessions on compliance in fashion, compliance in colouration of textiles and compliance in colour management will be held during the summit.

Colourists face a lot of challenges which include retailers and brand owners demanding the best performance at ever decreasing prices and frequent eco norm changes that place them under tremendous pressure and may introduce perceived trade barriers.

The cost of natural resources and labour are increasing worldwide with consequential impacts on margins in static or decreasing prices markets and challenges also include unsold retail inventories. Global markets are increasingly turbulent with the emergence of online selling channels and colourists find it difficult to leverage higher prices from purchasers for eco-friendly products.

The SDC is the world’s leading independent, educational charity dedicated to advancing the science and technology of colour worldwide.

This conference will bring together textile colourists, buyers, retailers, garment manufacturers, academicians and researchers from around the world to discuss technical innovations & ‘green’ initiatives in the textile colouration industry. (KD)
