Interstoff Asia Essential - Spring heralds the end of winter. On 13 and 14 March 2013, international fabric manufacturers will be showcasing their trends for the spring and summer seasons 2014. How important the whole issue of sustainability has now become for the show is abundantly demonstrated by the seminar programme. On the first day of the fair, Dr. Austin Au, from the Clothing Industry Training Authority, will discuss sustainability in textile manufacture in his seminar "The Back Side of Reducing Carbon Emissions".

On the second day, there follows a series of seminars on certification and standards, with speakers from organisations such as the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI), the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), Imo Control China, Testex, Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) and the WWF. Shirley Han from GOTS will, for instance, show what advantages organic textiles have for buyers, manufacturers, designers, teachers and students. Dr. Jean-Pierre Haug, from Testex, will take a closer look at the Oeko-Tex Standard.

So that buyers can more easily find those exhibitors, who are offering ecologically and socially optimised products, Interstoff Asia Essential has developed a labelling system in conjunction with the consultancy firm, Systain. The exhibitors are categorised with labels in four different colours, which indicate the extent to which they take account ecological and / or social aspects in the manufacture of their textiles.
