To fulfil the role of leading trade fair for eco-textiles, Interstoff Asia Essential Autumn will feature world top eco-experts to explain the thriving market and different standards for eco-friendly fabrics, with a special highlight on organic wool.

The show is also proud to present the first eco-Textile labelling booklet at the fairground, providing the textile trade with all-inclusive information about essential eco-certifications worldwide.

Interstoff Asia Essential Autumn will be held from 8 – 10 October 2008 at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Grand Hall.

Eco-experts to speak about organic wool:
The rising demand for organic wool in the eco-apparel market has stirred the need for organic standards in the growing and production process.

With a strong focus on eco-textiles, Interstoff Asia Essential has invited key eco-certification experts to give presentations about different standards of organic wool at the autumn 2008 fair.

The Australian Wool Innovation and International Wool Textile Organisation from Belgium will explain the role of organic wool in the ethical fashion market.

TM Organics from Australia will analyse different certifications and standards of organic wool. Case studies of Australian organic wool producers will be used to demonstrate how to convert to organic production.

Apart from learning about the growth and production of wool, visitors will be able to see fabrics made with organic wool and other eco-textiles at the special forum 'Eco-textile: Fabrics that care'.

All products will be marked with eco-labels, allowing buyers to quickly identify the raw materials, production and finishing process of the fabrics.

Eco-labelling booklet, a complete information source for eco-standards:
From autumn 2008 onwards, Interstoff Asia Essential will feature the first eco-labelling booklet, Eco-Textile labelling: A guide for manufacturers, retailers and brands to introduce around 30 of the most important eco standards and certifications worldwide.

It serves as a practical, easy to use reference tool for retailers, textile buyers and suppliers who want to know the scopes and procedures to obtain the certifications.

This booklet will be available only at the coming Texworld Paris and Interstoff Asia Essential, and will be updated annually.

Key suppliers to highlight different products:
Buyers can see famous suppliers of various fibres, fabrics and eco-textiles at the fair. Some of the exhibitors to look for include.

World-leading fibre producer Lenzing will feature nominated fabrics of its worldwide fabric competition including fabrics for eco-fibre blends, sportswear, lingerie and lounge, Warmbiz, shirts & blouse, denim and more. Fair participants are also welcome to register as jury members of the competition at their stand.

Japan's woollen textile producers association, Joint Bishu will exhibit at the show for the first time to promote the brand and their trendy eco-textiles made with paper and bamboo to the Asian markets.
