Oeko-Tex to address Fiber & Textile Sustainability at SYFA

The International Oeko-Tex Association will present “Sustainability and Value Creation in Textiles” at the Synthetic Yarn and Fiber Association 2010 Spring Conference to be held April 20-21 at the Sheraton Airport Plaza in Charlotte, NC. The SYFA conference theme is Fibers and Textiles for a New Decade.

Dina Dunn, who oversees the Oeko-Tex marketing efforts in North America, will present an overview of the Oeko-Tex fiber and textile certifications and the importance of those third-party validations to textile manufacturers, brands, and retailers in the US. The most well known of Oeko-Tex's certificates is the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 which guarantees that fibers and textile products are tested to be free from harmful levels of more than 100 substances that are believed to be harmful to humans. The Oeko-Tex Standard 1000 certifies the manufacturing process with respect to environmental and social impact.

“Sustainability is a complex equation, especially in the fiber and textile industry,” says Dunn. “Oeko-Tex is committed to helping manufacturers provide fibers and textiles that meet some of the highest safety and environmental standards in the world.” More than 100 industry insiders will be in attendance. Discussions are expected to center around the mechanisms by which the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 can help create value throughout the apparel and home textile supply chain, reaching all the way to the consumer.
