Scott & Fyfe Limited, the Tayport based technical textiles business that is currently family owned, has announced that it is to transform itself into an employee owned company.

Mr Scott & Mr Fyfe started a linen works in 1864 and the company is now one of the few survivors of the Tayside jute industry. It reinvented itself in the 1960s with the development of polypropylene to become a leading player in the flexible industrial bulk container business. 

This textile company is from Scotland.

Textiles that work to help the environment.

Herff Jones chooses REPREVE®, made by Unifi, Inc., to help make spring commencements greener. This year, students from colleges and universities can feel even better about their commencement ceremonies because they will be wearing REPREVE based graduation gowns.

More than 140 colleges and universities have chosen Renew Graduation caps and gowns made with REPREVE. Over 240,000 graduates will walk in Renew caps and gowns, including students from the University of Houston, University of Michigan, Syracuse University, Marquette University, Johns Hopkins University and Providence College.

REPREVE is an essential ingredient that makes REPREVE based fabrics sustainable. Made from recycled materials, including post-consumer plastic bottles, REPREVE helps to reduce the environmental impact of everyday life. Each Herff Jones graduation gown made with REPREVE uses about 29 post-consumer plastic bottles, collectively using nearly seven million post-consumer plastic water bottles this year.

IFAI to hold 100th Anniversary celebration at IFAI Expo Americas 2012 in Boston
Mark your calendar now to attend Nov. 7-9, 2012
Boston Convention and Exhibition Center | Boston MA USA

The Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) has officially kicked off the observance of its 100th Anniversary year in 2012 as the largest, longest-running trade association for the specialty fabrics industry. And when its trade show doors open at IFAI Expo Americas 2012 at the Boston Convention Center, Nov. 7-9, 2012, the entire specialty fabrics industry is invited to take part in a momentous three-day centenary celebration.

Stay tuned for updates on www.ifaiexpo.com.

In January 2012 the Harris Tweed Authority discovered that ITX Fashion Limited, the internet trading arm of Zara, was selling a product on its website described, but not actually labelled, as "Harris Tweed Blazer".

The product was not made from Harris Tweed and therefore ITX had acted contrary to the Harris Tweed Act 1993, and various trademarks held by the Authority.

The proceedings have been concluded amicably, with the Authority having secured assurances from ITX that there will be no repetition.

It has been accepted that this incident was not deliberate and was an oversight on the part of ITX, for which it has apologised. However, the Authority considers such conduct with the utmost seriousness. Misuse of the Harris Tweed name risks diluting it and undermines the integrity of an iconic Scottish name.

The Harris Tweed Act of 1993 defines Harris Tweed as cloth that has been handwoven by the islanders of Lewis, Harris, Uist and Barra in their homes, using pure virgin wool that has been dyed and spun in the Outer Hebrides.

This Parliamentary Act ensures that only cloth following this process can be certified with the Harris Tweed Orb symbol and referred to as ‘Harris Tweed’.

This is an important textile industry development. Interested to see how this plays out. Obviously, the immediate effect has been the rise in cotton future prices. What will happen from here? Any thoughts?
Yesterday, India announced that they have banned cotton exports. How does this effect the fashion industry?

India banned all cotton exports on Monday, causing U.S. cotton futures to surge and igniting fears of another jump in prices for cotton goods. India decided to immediately impose the ban because it's worried about a possible supply crunch in the country.
