China best green fabric award given to 20 companies
Dec '16
A total of 20 companies, from more than 300 entries, were selected for the third best green fabric award at the 'China Fabrics Quality Competition' held on December 3. The event was held along with the 18th session of Shenzhen clothing OEM and accessories exhibition and the closing ceremony of the third session of the Shenzhen original design fashion week.
During the thirteenth Five Year Plan period, the supply side of reform as a national strategy has greatly impacted the textile and garment industry. The Chinese government put forward strategy to increase varieties, improve quality and create brands, and promoted a 'quality revolution' across the country. As a large textile manufacturing country, China is facing quality bottleneck in continuously upgrading its international reputation. The 'China Fabrics Quality Competition' was initiated to address the pain point of quality of the domestic textile industry, and to ensure orderly competition and healthy development of textile fabrics enterprises.
The theme of the third China Fabrics Quality Competition was to 'find a good fabric in China'. With fabric quality as the core of the contest that began on June 28 this year, the competition attracted entries from more than 300 fabric enterprises. To make the entry of various enterprises more convenient, a variety of registration channels were opened through multimedia and widely publicity was given for the same. The competition was organised by the China Academy of Textile Science, Textile Science Research magazine, the Shenzhen Textile Industry Association, the global textile network, DICTION, and Pengcheng Exhibition Co. Ltd. The China Textile Testing and Certification Center provided exclusive technical support.
Compared with the previous two editions, the latest China Fabrics Quality Competition had three firsts. It was for the first time that the event was held in Shoaxing, Shenzhen and other industrial clusters. It was also for the first time that industry trade platform Global Textile Network, fashion industry innovation platform DICTION news network, and well-known exhibition company Pengcheng exhibition were invited to join as a sponsor to bring in new vitality in the industry chain contest. The competition was also held for the first time in a textile laboratory, on the opening day, which ensured zero-distance access to the participating enterprises to understand testing standards, projects and related standards and methods.
Further, activities were carried out in Shaoxing, Shenzhen and other places to make the fabric enterprises understand the rules of the contest, and to help fabrics and brand apparel enterprises to achieve effective participation. At the same time, the organisers sent representatives of enterprises to third-party testing organisations to visit textile labs to make them understand the requirements of the testing process.
The entry fabrics for the competition were tested by professional testing organisations and textile standard testing and certification centres. The fabrics were tested for the presence of various items including formaldehyde, decomposable carcinogenic aromatic amine dyes, etc. PH value and colour fastness of fabrics were also tested. Additionally, combustion performance was also tested for those participating in the national best baby clothing green fabric products competition.
To make the test results easier to compare and understand, the China Textile Standard designed and evaluation system, whereby various laboratory results were converted into scores, and based on the weight of each test, an ultimate Total Quality score was arrived at.
The fourth edition of China Fabrics Quality Competition will begin in June 2017. (RKS)
