ASEPRI to soon set up textile factory in Valencia

The textile factory that Spanish Association of Products for Children – ASEPRI is setting up in Valencia, Spain to help domestic brands grow their reliance on domestically produced inputs, is likely to launch operations this month, the association announced in the framework of 77th edition of Fair of Children and Youth Fashion - FIMI that concluded recently.
 
ASEPRI President Vicente Mompó noted that presently around 80 percent of the textile material that clothing producers use is sourced from other countries like India and China, Las Provincias reported.
 
He said the increase in imports of low-cost textiles from China towards the end of last century badly hit the textile industry of Valencia, pushing several firms out of business or forcing them to move their production to Asia, which led to waning of the domestic sector.
 
However, with decreasing domestic demand and contracting exports due to the ongoing financial crisis, and rising cost of labour in China and increased transportation charges, producing in China no longer remains a feasible option, he added.
 
Following this, several firms are once again looking back home, and the new factory would form a base for re-launching domestic production, particularly when customers have also started attaching high importance to the place of origin of products they use, he said.
 
Highlighting the efforts made by the Spanish textile firms to adjust their production to cater to global demand, Mr. Mompó said despite difficult times, the success of Spanish brands is attributable to excellent product development based on designing, quality, innovation and safety.
 
ASEPRI and Valencia Institute of Biomechanics (IBV) also chose FIMI as a platform to present the results of the European Project ‘Design4Children’, launched in late 2010. The project aiming to enhance the competitiveness of European SMEs in childcare product sector, saw development of three innovative design tools for promotion of clothing with enhanced lifespan and offering better comfort to children.
