ITMF endorses cotton as natural fibers
Nov '10
At its Annual Meeting in Sao Paulo/Brazil (October 17-19, 2010) the International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF) was informed that the description of cotton as a “natural fiber” by the international cotton industry has been questioned because of the employment of genetic engineering in more than 50% of world cotton production.

The ITMF endorsed that all fibers produced from cotton plants are “natural fibers” regardless of production methodology or seed technology.

The International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF) is an international Association for the world's textile industries, dedicated to keeping its world-wide membership constantly informed through surveys, studies and publications and through the organization of annual conferences, participating in the evolution of the industry's value chain and publishing considered opinions on future trends and international developments.
