Jan '09
FAO officially launched International Year of Natural Fibres (IYNF) 2009 to celebrate the virtues of cotton, flax, sisal and hemp, but also of wool, alpaca, camel hair and angora.Production of animal and vegetable fibres is a major agricultural sector, worth some $40 billion annually to the world's farmers. Fibres can in some cases account for up to 50 percent of a developing country's exports.

IYNF 2009 to raise awareness of natural fibres, to promote efficiency and sustainability of the natural fibres, and to foster an effective international partnership among the various natural fibres industries.

The International Year of Natural Fibres has a logo and slogan. We hope this image will become widely known in 2008 and 2009.
