The Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF), an organisation coordinating an industry of multiple markets and end uses, has highlighted the latest developments and collections by Taiwanese companies at last month’s Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics, held in Shanghai from 25-27 September.
The booth, organised by TTF, featured 91 companies, exhibiting their innovations in functional and fashion textiles. “Taiwan’s textiles industry is renowned for its integral supply chain. As one of the leaders in chemical fibre, Taiwan has introduced various functional and eco-friendly textiles to the global market, thereby being recognised as a sourcing hub by major buyers around the world,” the federation reports.
Taiwanese producers work with brands, such as The North Face, Vaude, American Eagle, Auto Jack, Oilily, and more. Under the slogan Think Taiwan for Textiles, Taiwan Select featured a number of outstanding Taiwanese textiles suppliers, which regarded the fair as “a good platform to reach potential international partners and showcase their latest products”. Taiwan Select attracted brands, textiles and garment manufacturers, to come to visit and source.
The Taiwan Textile Federation was founded on 25 November 1975. Over the years, TTF has gradually adapted to meet the needs of the textiles industry, expanding its functions to market promotion, product design, fashion information analysis, online information, technology training, collection and analysis of market information, certification of functional textiles, publications of textile information, issuance of Certificate of Origin, and other textile-related services.
