As consumer awareness about eco-friendly and sustainable products via quality production and processes devoid of harmful chemicals and raw materials, has driven producers and manufactures of textile and leather goods to adopt latest standards and procedures.

For this to happen, Hohenstein Institute, Germany along with its 14 other associates has evolved global standards and procedures that are quite laudable.

A workshop to explain the salient features of Eco Passport and OEKO-TEX – a concept and labeling developed by Hohenstein Institute, was held in Ahmedabad.

A well attended workshop today attracted audiences from as far a Bangalore, Mumbai, Bhilwara, Vapi and of course - Ahmedabad, was conducted by Hohenstein Institute (Germany) city based representatives team comprising of Mr Sumit Gupta, Branch Head, Mr Vinay Chavan, Marketing Executive and Mr Paul Thomas.

In his valedictory, Mr Sumit Gupta explained the importance of holding the workshop while appraising the audience about the history of Hohenstein Institute and its activities.

He said that the standards were all about sharing, exchanging, value offering and ultimately benefiting all components of the textile as well as leather value chain – from fibre or raw hides to retail and fashion with special emphasis on the consumer.

Hohenstein Institute offers comprehensive services in terms of Clothing Technology, Consumer Tests, Textile Testing, Function and Care, Hygiene and Bio Technology, Test Centre for personal and Protective equipment and Corporate Communications and Marketing, was explained by Mr Vinay Chauhan through a Power Point presentation.

Delving on the different aspects concerning these standards, Mr Gupta explained the certification standards procedures in details and also satisfied the audience queries during the conclusion of the sessions.

The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 was introduced at the beginning of the 1992 as a response to the needs of the general public for textiles which posed no risk to health. "Poison in textiles" and other negative headlines were widespread at this time and indiscriminately branded all chemical across the board used in textile manufacturing as negative and dangerous to health.

The Hohenstein Institute founded in 1946, offer manufacturers, retailers, service providers and consumers “competence from one single source”, covering a wide range of distinct, but closely linked fields of work.

The result of this interdisciplinary approach is the successful cooperation with other research institutes from sectors such as medicine, electronics or microsystem technology.

These networks open up totally new areas of application for textile products and thus provide the Hohenstein Institute' clients with additional markets and opportunities for the future.
