Textile Exchange has partnered with ethical clothing leaders Mantis World and Gossypium to produce its first limited-edition T-shirt collection for men, women, and children. "Funds raised will pay for farmers to go to the Textile Exchange Global Conference in Barcelona in September 2011." says Liesl Truscott, Farm Engagement Director, Textile Exchange. As the biggest global meeting of textile brands and retailers with an increasing number of manufacturers, the Textile Exchange annual conference provides an excellent opportunity for people within the Industry to meet, and network, as well as learn about more sustainable textile products and processes. This opportunity to connect can result in long-term business relationships. By making farmers a part of the stakeholder discussions and allowing them to see for themselves where their organic fiber ends up, future trade relations are improved and mutual understanding and respect is built between growers and retailers.
