Fibre2fashion plans compendium on Ethical Sourcing

Nov '12
Fibre2fashion the world’s largest B2B online portal for the textile, apparel and fashion industry is planning a compendium – ‘Ethical Sourcing’, which will feature those global textile and garment manufacturing companies which follow strict ethical production norms.

Rising awareness amongst consumers seeking ethically manufactured textiles and clothing is forcing worldwide apparel brands to showcase products which are produced by following ethical manufacturing standards.

The ‘Ethical Sourcing’ compendium will help connect the manufacturers of apparel, home textiles and other finished goods that are sourced by the retailers in various global textile hubs.

Mr Sumit Gupta – India Representative of Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and a participant in the compendium says, “Being a forerunner in promoting sustainability in textile manufacturing, we want to create more awareness about organic fashion. There are many brands and consumers already purchasing GOTS certified garments and home textiles”.

He adds, “Through Ethical Sourcing Compendium and the Cotton-on Campaign, we wish to initiate a pull effect by increasing consumer demand and promoting sustainable supply chain management of brands and retailers including GOTS certified organic textile products”.

“GOTS not only ensures that the final product is free from harmful substances, but also certifies that the whole processing was done in an environmentally and socially responsible manner”, he winds up by saying.

Mr Jainam Kumarpal of Bhu:sattva, a India-based producer of organic textiles and clothing says, “Ethical Sourcing Compendium (ESC) we feel is a good opportunity for Bhu:sattva to promote itself globally”.

He informs, “Looking at the target reach of ESC, we feel its a perfect platform for a ethical brand like us to spread the word and create awareness about our brand in the international fashion fraternity and amongst global consumers who might be interested in a organic designer wear brand like Bhu:sattva”.

The compendium which will be available in three formats – print, online and e-book will be circulated among 4,000 global retailers, brands, buying houses, sourcing agencies, certification companies, trade bodies, association, trade fair organizers and textile ministries or textile departments of various countries.
