Sep '14
‘All About Sustainability’ zone returns to Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics – Autumn Edition 2014 fair again, expanding this year by 148% with a total of 32 exhibitors taking part.

Only one month away, Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics will see over 3,700 exhibitors from 32 countries and regions taking part in the fair’s 20th anniversary edition.

Matching the strong demand in the industry for eco-friendly and sustainable products, technology and services, the ‘All About Sustainability’ zone will also have an ‘Educational’ zone.

The ‘Educational’ zone, features the Oeko-Tex Pavilion which currently has 17 confirmed exhibitors, while individual brands such as bluesign, GOTS, Intertek, SGS-CSTC and TÜV Rheinland will also feature their products in this zone.

Bluesign will showcase bluesign system, a chemicals management system, and bluesign bluefinder, a web based application for chemicals management at the fair.

One of the new exhibitors in the Educational Zone is Chori Co Ltd from Japan and will be showing their natural vegetables dyed textile products using standard vegetables and inedible parts of vegetables collected from farmers around Japan.

The eco fabrics brought by Chori are finished in Japan using an eco friendly production process - dyeing with less water and less electricity consumption.

Another first-time Korean exhibitor, Naco Co Ltd will display an eco-friendly dyeing method. Naco possesses a 25-year study of natural dyeing techniques developed over 300 color renditions.

Confirmed exhibitors so far in this area include industry leaders Lenzing, Unifi, LiNing and Toread.

This year, for the first time, a special GOTS forum will take place on October 22. The forum is designed to give examples of achievable improvements that producers can make along their supply chains to become more sustainable.

To ensure the fair remains as relevant as possible for the industry, a comprehensive seminar programme will take place during the second and third days.

A few of the companies hosting seminars at this edition include Birla, Huafu, Jintex Corporation, Milano Unica, NellyRodi Agency, Oeko-Tex Association, SGS, Unifi, etc.

Running concurrently with this fair are two other events: Yarn Expo Autumn (hall N4) and PH Value (hall N4-5) which are located within the same venue as Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics and take place over three days from 20–22 October. (AR)
