The International Oeko-Tex Association and Textile Insight will present “A Focus on Denim”, the next installment in their popular “Insight on What's Next” textile and apparel industry roundtable discussion series, in New York City on Friday, June, 11, 2010, 12:00 noon-1:30 p.m. at the DuPont Corian Design Studio, 49 W. 23rd St. between 5th and 6th Ave.

Leading denim industry executives will share their opinions on current trends with special focus on sustainability issues. The panel will be moderated by Emily Walzer, Editor of Textile Insight, and will include the following industry insiders:

Andrew Olah of Olah Inc and founder of the Kingpins Denim Show. With 20 years of experience in the denim industry, Olah will provide an industry overview with emphasis on the environmental impact of cotton farming.

Brady Hill, VP Sales, Greensource. Greensource manufactures organic jeans and cotton tops that are certified to the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) and sold at major retailers such as Macy's (“Greensource”), Kohl's (“ReGen”), Walmart (“Faded Glory”), and Kmart (“Route 66").

“The International Oeko-Tex Association has been awarding the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 to denim producers for years,” says Sam Moore who represents the International Oeko-Tex Association in the US. “Denim is a dynamic market, one in which the consumer is constantly demanding new fashion finishes and washes. The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 helps consumers feel confident that their favorite jeans have been tested to be free from harmful levels of more than 100 potentially dangerous substances.”
