The government of the Spanish autonomous province of Catalonia has joined forces with Texfor to promote Catalan textile and fashion, according to statement from the government of Generalitat de Catalunya (gencat).
Catalunyan Minister of Enterprise and Employment Felip Puig and Texfor president Jordi Ribes signed a collaboration agreement for the promotion of Catalan textile-fashion sector, specifically the fashion industry as a business, with the completion of the activities within the just concluded 080 Barcelona Fashion event.
As part of the agreement, the Catalan Department of Enterprise and Employment, through the Consortium of Commerce, Handicraft & Fashion (CCAM), will facilitate the presence of Texfor member companies by providing them space for pop-up store and thus foster the relationship between the Catalan industrial suppliers of fabrics, accessories and finished textile designers participating in the 080 Barcelona Fashion event. Both parties will also collaborate in disseminating knowledge of textile and fashion trends.
Texfor is the Textile Industry Confederation that brings together major textile associations and represents and defends the collective interest of Spanish textile companies that manufacture or sell yarns, fabrics, textile and clothing, as well as those firms that manufacture finishing and/or prints for apparel markets, and household, technical and industrial uses. At present, Texfor represents a total of 3,787 companies, mostly SMEs, with a total turnover of €4,682 million and employ 41,512 people.
As part of the Barcelonian fashion fest, Texfor organized the second addition of the Catalan annual textile forum Texmeeting by Texfor. Themed ‘Textil, carrera de futuro’ (textile, future career), the forum discussed solutions to different aspects of the textile sector and create the right framework to expand the professional network of participants.
The event addressed issues related to training and adaptation of knowledge according to different business needs. It also hosted Roundtable sessions on topics ranging from the future opportunities in the textile sector to the jobs currently in demand and the training required in today’s scenario.
