Talon International and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has announced their partnership for the CFDA’s Supply Chain Collective. The collective is a not-for-profit CFDA’s new initiative designed to bring even greater value to the nearly 500 American womenswear, menswear, jewellery, and accessory designers in their membership.

“The supply chain collective aims to help alleviate hurdles related to topics such as sustainable solutions for materials, packaging, hangers and plastics, logistics for fulfilment, warehousing and distribution, inventory management, size inclusivity, and artisan sourcing, among others. The inaugural supply chain collective partners include: ApparelMagic, Arch & Hook, Bergen Logistics, KEDIC Fashion Workshop, Nest, SwatchOn, Talon International, and TIPA,” Cal McNeil, programme manager at the CFDA said in a press release.

As such, Talon International will now be the CFDA’s Supply Chain Collective provider of zippers, trim, packaging, stretch technology, as well as providing a variety of sustainable and ECO like solutions. The latter will be fulfilled, in part, with their use of materials such as ocean waste, recycled polyester, eco plating, BCI cotton, Oxo-biodegradable polybags, FSC paper, and more, along with offering full sets of marketing materials curated to give CFDA members an edge in the industry.

“As a provider of single-use zippers, trim, and packaging products, we are finding imaginative ways our customers may re-use our products rather than just throw them away. Whether it’s our sustainable hang tag that can be planted to grow trees, our ocean waste ghost nets material that can be transformed into zippers, buckles, D rings, buttons, and more, we focus on reducing our impact on the environment,” Talon International’s CEO, Larry Dyne said.
