Taiwan Eco-Textiles: a Marriage of Fashion plus Function
Sustainable products are an integral part of the green consumerism as well as a key element to become a successful business in today’s very competitive global textile market.
International brands, retailers and manufacturers are taking long-term plans and actions to source and produce textiles that have the least impact on the environment and are made in a socially responsible manner. The Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF) has been working in promoting Taiwan’s eco textiles for some time in order to establish the island’s leading position in the eco textile market after the successful precedent in the area of functional textiles.
After more than 60 years of development, Taiwan’s textile industry has evolved from a mass production textile supplier to a textile innovator equipped with a comprehensive yet integrated value chain. While traditional textiles still have an important share in Taiwan's textile output, the extraordinary performance achieved by local enterprises in the field of eco and multifunctional textiles has redefined Taiwan’s status in the global textile marketplace.
The core competencies of Taiwan’s textile industry lie in its R&D, technology and innovation. The industry is constantly introducing its new eco textile developments which combine high-tech, ecology, function and life aesthetics to give new definition to modern textiles.
The annual publication of Taiwan Eco Textiles serves is a compilation of the industry’s achievement in eco textiles for the past year. It serves as a valuable tool for those who are looking for reliable and determined textile business partners. More information on eco textiles in Taiwan can be found at eco.textiles.org.tw
We truly believe that the abundant innovation of Taiwan’s textile industry can contribute to our environment and ameliorate our daily life!
