The International Summit on Textile Coloration 2017, organized by SDC International, a leading independent, educational charity dedicated to advancing the science and technology of colour worldwide, to take place on 8 March, in Sri Lanka will be focusing on sustainability.
The conference will bring together textile colourists, buyers, retailers, garment producers, academicians and researchers from around the world to discuss technical innovations and green initiatives in the textile coloration industry.
The conference will help visitors meet the people who are driving the change; get to know the people who have used the new innovations, and learn the path to a better world of coloration. Some of the questions that will be answered during the summit include: Whatâ€™s the way ahead? Who will pay for the increased cost of sustainability? Is fashion the most polluting industry? How toxic are the clothes that I buy? How organic is organic?
According to organizers, the world is changing fast and colourists have to recognize the challenge and face it squarely. Some of the factors affecting the industry is the growing demand on behalf of retailers and brand owners for the best performance at ever decreasing prices.
Eco norm also continue to change frequently, placing the colourists under pressure and arguably introducing trade barriers. The cost of natural resources and labour are also increasing worldwide with consequential impacts on margins in static or decreasing prices markets.
Finally, challenges include unsold retail inventories, and increasingly turbulent global markets, with the emergence of online selling channels.
