Dilek Erik to talk on sustainability at Denimsandjeans
Internationally acclaimed denim expert Dr Dilek Erik will be back at the third edition of Denimsandjeans India show scheduled for July 17-18, 2019 in Bengaluru, talking about sustainability. In the recent past years, Erik has also appeared as a guest speaker at different editions of Denimsandjeans shows in Vietnam as well as in Bangladesh.

In the seminar topic titled 'A Comprehensive Look at Sustainable Process in Global Denim Supply Chain', she will talk about the increasing role of sustainable fashion in our industry, and why is it important to have transparent policies and its timely implementation. During her presentation, she is also going to get more details about the current studies in raw materials, dye and chemicals, newly developed processes and waste management. Her presentation will have a comprehensive look at what has been done for sustainable denim production and what needs to be done.

Sustainability has become very pertinent these days and all the stakeholders of denim supply chain have been seriously making efforts to implement policies to assure the sustainable practices at every step.

"As production increased, consumers started to demand better quality. Technical specs of the fabric, shrinkage, shade standards, skew, and similar concerns were voiced. For a long time, the sector fought on banning the use of dye and chemicals which would have harmful effects on humans. Several studies were conducted for further research. This was followed by a period where the industry's awareness expanded to include nature and environment protection. manufacturers were required to have waste control policies and purification. The compliance was assured bylaws. Once it was realised that we had limited resources, companies tried to find new ways to consume less and recycle what had, previously, been used," Denimsandjeans said in its press release.
