Famous suppliers from China and around the world will feature a range of fashion, eco and functional fabrics at the Autumn fair. Fair will feature the first 'eco-textile labelling guide', a must-have reference tool for the textile trade. Organic wool and eco-textile standards experts will speak at the Interstoff Asia Essential seminars

Interstoff Asia Autumn 2008 will open from 8 – 10 October at the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, Grand Hall. More than 200 suppliers from Austria, China, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, UK and the US will exhibit at the fair. Cotton Council International will send a delegation of six companies looking to source products from high-quality suppliers at the fair.

Other highlights of the fair include the 'eco-textile labelling guide' introducing the most important existing eco-labels and standards; special display forums for Autumn / Winter 2009/2010 fashionable fabrics, eco-textile products and functional fabrics, and eco-certifications experts to speak at the fair seminar programme.

Special products from Korea, Taiwan and China:
Suppliers in the Korea and Taiwan pavilions will highlight various fabrics with breathable, quick dry, anti-bacterial, UV-protection, quick-absorb functions.

Other featuring products include knitting and woven fabrics, specialty silks, bamboo and corn yarns and more specialty fabrics.

The China Chamber of Commerce for Import and Export of Textiles (CCCT) will organise a group of 19 top Chinese suppliers to join the fair. These suppliers also include companies from Huzhou, one of the famous textile and apparel base in China.

In the first half of the year, the value of Huzhou's textile export to EU countries has reached 6.8 hundred million, and export to new markets such as Madagascar, Afghanistan, Brazil, Australia, Russia, UAE and ASEAN countries has risen 65%.

Fair will feature the first 'eco-textile labelling guide', a must-have reference tool for the textile trade. The 'eco-textile labelling guide' is the first booklet about introducing the most important organic and eco-textiles certifications in the market as well as fair trade standards.

It is an essential tool for textile manufacturers, retailers and brands who wish to find the most suitable eco-standards and to source products with minimal environmental impact.

“Customers at our trade fair want to know what kind of eco-textile labels are available in the market, what is the difference between them, how to sell eco-products to Europe, Japan and the US, and above all, what does it all cost? I believe the 'eco-textile labelling guide' can provide answers to these questions,” said Ms Wendy Wen, Director Trade Fairs of Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. This booklet will be updated annually and available only at Interstoff Asia Essential and Texworld Paris.

The guidebook is divided into four main sections:
Obligatory organic textile standards: This chapter outlines the regulations for organic textiles in the USA, EU and Japan, e.g. USDA National Organic Programme (NOP), EU: 2092/91, Japanese Agricultural Standards (JAS).
