The Textile Association (India), Mumbai Unit organized one day Seminar on "Organic Textiles – Farming to Finishing” in Mumbai on January 18, 2008.

Mr. Mahendra Tanna, Vice-President, TAI Mumbai Unit welcomed the Chief Guest, Dr. J. N. Singh, Textile Commissioner, Ministry of Textiles, Govt. of India, Guest of Honour, Mr. Dilip Jiwrajka, Managing Director, Alok Industries Limited., Key Note Speaker, Dr. C. D. Mayee, Chairman, Agricultural Scientist Recruitment Board, speakers and delegates.

Mr. C. Bose, President, TAI, Mumbai Unit mentioned in his presidential address about consumer demand for organic textile is growing in double digits. The consumer awareness for ecology & environment is growing all over the world. There is increasing demand for ecofriendly & organic products. This also extends to organic textiles. More number of large retailers & buyers are pushing the demand for organic textiles.

Mr. V. C. Gupte, Chairman & Convener, briefed about the Seminar. He said that consumers all over the world are increasingly becoming environmental and health conscious. Developing concerns for protecting ecology and preventing global warming is boosting the demand for organic products across all categories. Textile is no exception to this global trend. Purchasing an organic textile was considered more of an emotional and philosophical decision, unlike purchase of organic food, which has obvious health benefits.

As more and more statistical dataemerged, every one realized that it was not a 'fad' – Just to give you one example, the world's 25% harmful pesticides are used for cotton cultivation which covers only 3% of farmland. And most of these pesticides were manufactured & used as warfares as chemical weapons during World Wars I & II.
