Conference to discuss issues facing UK textile sector
27
Aug '12
The conference - 'A New Dawn - Rebuilding UK textile manufacturing', is being organized by The Dyers’ Co, The Clothworkers’ Co and The Weavers’ Co on November 2 in London.
 
The conference would discuss issues like the advantages of sourcing and producing in the UK, the significance of British design and the skill challenge confronting the industry at present.
 
Alongside other textile industry retailers, producers and experts, fashion designer Sir Paul Smith and Business Secretary Vince Cable would address the conference.
 
Ahead of a conference to discuss issues confronting the British textile industry, stirred by rising concerns over international sourcing, three City of London Livery Companies have given a call for investment in skills and infrastructure, to provide a boost to the domestic textile industry.
 
The City of London Livery companies originated during the medieval period as craft guilds. These guilds decided on who can trade, controlled prices & wages, working conditions and welfare. Also, they kept a check over quality in return for a trade monopoly, carried out inspections and penalized poor workmanship. In turn they would take care of members unable to work and ensure them a decent life.
