TITAS Show to emphasize on healthy, bio-friendly & hi-tech textiles
Oct '08
Co-organized by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) and Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF), Taipei Innovative Textile Application Show (TITAS) will be held this year at the Taipei World Trade Center (TWTC) on October 15 through 17.

TITAS 2008 sustains the repositioned concept of "F4+1 - from Fibers to Fabrics for Fashion plus Functions + Full package services".

For the past several editions, the show has been renown for featuring functional and fashionable aspects of high added-value yarns and fabrics, mostly from Taiwan and other Asian countries.

And now with comfortability and bio-friendliness becoming major concerns and interest for textile buyers and consumers, TITAS 2008 will furthermore emphasize on "healthy", "bio-friendly" and "hi-tech" textile materials besides the ever-important themes "fashion" and "function".

Firstly, the show will allocate a special "eco-textiles image area" featuring exhibitors' latest R&D results in bio-friendly materials, such as eco-friendly polyester fibers, bio-compatible textile products, textile products made of recycled PET bottles, fibers produced through non-polluting process, dope dyed fiber and other innovative materials that help preserve our environment.

Secondly, there will be a new "organic cotton pavilion" inside the show. This area will present an integrated "show within the show" introducing the products and services of accredited companies and relevant institutes for organic cotton, including Far Eastern Textile Ltd, Formosa Taffeta Co Ltd, Tai Yuen Textile Co Ltd, Eclat Textile Co Ltd, and Institute for Marketecology (IMO) and Control Union.

On the exhibitors front, leading Taiwanese manufacturers including Formosa Chemicals, Nan Ya Plastics, Far Eastern, Formosa Taffeta, Chain Yam, Taiwan Paiho, Lealea Group, Zig Sheng, Shinkong Synthetic Fibers and Tri Ocean are all among the list.

They will present their latest functional and fashionable products and technologies, including fibers and yarns made of bamboo charcoal, corn, soybean, metals, as well as antibacterial, electromagnetic shielding, UV protective, moisture transferring and quick drying, water-proof and thermal fabrics.

Overseas exhibitors will come from Japan, India, mainland China, Thailand, Korea and Indonesia.

Delegation groups from Indonesia, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Vietnam, Australia, mainland China and Hong Kong will also visit the show.

Meanwhile, there are more then 60 VIP buyers from major brand names such as Adidas, BCBG MAXAZRIA GROUP, Gas Far East, Glen Raven Asia, Warnaco, EXCEPTION de MIXMIND, O'neil, Ace Alpha International Limited, Outdoor Research, UTT, Kuraray Living, Young Fiber-Resource. Li Ning from mainland China has also confirmed his attendance.

With a seemingly somber economic picture lying ahead, we still see opportunity for textile industry. This sector is characterized by change and innovation, which helps the industry survive the declines and then prosper again and again.

Over the years, TITAS means to be the leading platform in Asia introducing the innovative evolution in this part of the global textile map. It is definitely a show worthy of your visit!
