Suzhou Deylon facility opens with Oeko-Tex Standard 1000

"A path appears, when you take it," says an ancient Chinese proverb. This is even more true, if you know which direction you want to take. Since Suzhou Deylon Textile Co Ltd opened its production facility in Wujiang City in the Chinese province of Jaingsu in 2000, its goal has been to make highquality headwear for the Arabic market in the most environmentally-friendly way possible.

Evidence of successful attainment of this aim is the company's certification in accordance with Oeko-Tex Standard 1000 – a heretofore unprecedented achievement for a firm located in Asia. At an Oeko-Tex Information Event held on 28 July 2008 at the ITMA ASIA in Shanghai, the President of Ajlan & Bros Co.

Mohamed Ajlan, received the Oeko-Tex Standard 1000 Certificate from Oeko-Tex General Secretary Raimar Freitag for the environmentally friendly production conditions at the Suzhou Deylon plant.

Suzhou Deylon Textile is one of a total of 16 Chinese subsidiaries of the Saudi Arabia-based investors, Ajlan & Bros. which feature a broad range of textile products. With more than 2,100 employees, the company is helping to meet steadily growing demand for traditional headwear, the yashmagh and ghuttra, in the Arab world.

New production technologies smoothly contributed to bringing the Wujiang City plant into compliance with Chinese environmental protection laws implemented in 2002. After a four-month preparatory phase, the production facility now meets the requirements of the Oeko-Tex Standard
1000 as well.

In the weaving area, for example, an air conditioning system with built-in air filters ensures that dust and lint remain within prescribed limits in the production halls. In addition, the company also meets the required standards when it comes to protecting its employees from noise and with respect to equipment and electrical maintenance.

And the Chinese weaving machines have been optimally set to produce fabrics of special thickness and weave suited to all types of headscarves with respect to size, colour and quality.

meeting Oeko-Tex Standard 100 for all items produced – are substituting problematic substances used in production with environmentally friendly ones (for example, replacing chlorine bleach with more environmentally friendly hydrogen peroxide bleach), maintaining strict standards regarding wastewater quality, optimised energy use, implementing certain measures to ensure worker safety, and maintaining strict social security standards, including ruling out child labour.

Suzhou Deylon Textile Co. Ltd. is the 38th textile company worldwide to be certified as an environmentally friendly production site. Adrian Meili is convinced that other companies in the Far East will soon join Suzhou Deylon.

He says, "You could say this is initial spark towards which other interested companies can orientate themselves. What is really remarkable is that a Chinese facility is receiving certification for markets in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait rather than markets in Europe.”

This fact indicates that along with Europe and Japan, more and more consumer markets are developing an awareness of human-ecologically optimal textile products and that textile producers in Asia are reconsidering their production technologies and making conditions more environmentally friendly.
