SOURCING AND SUPPLY CHAIN

The textile industry is a key manufacturing industry in the world and especially in China. Supply chain globalization has brought lots of economic benefits but today reshoring seems to be a solution.

Costs increased, quality issues, late deliveries, flexibility, sustainability, human rights are recurrent factors that push organization to reconsider their supply chain.

By fact, the textile industry is an environmental unfriendly industry due to hazardous pollutants such as dyeing chemicals and carbon dioxide emissions. Today, these issues are being addressed by compulsory carbon footprint taxes, sustainability rules and guidelines nor international certification (ISO) … but is it possible to do more? Where should investments be made for global supply chain to remain competitive and relevant?

Can today’s model continue to be relevant in the coming years? What is the future of sourcing office?

 PRINTING ARE READY TO LEAVE SOME DRIPS

Printing is the proof that art and techniques are stronger together!

Where would the creative genius of designers and engraving know-how be without the latest technologies in digital printing? These digital technologies have created a multitude of new graphic and color options.  But what constraints apply to each different technique: in terms of raw materials, print grounds, ecological production and production costs? What can we actually print? Should we be prioritizing digital printing? What is the position of screen-printing in today’s industry? Are prints affected by fashion? Do certain markets show a higher demand for prints?

Designers come together to exchange knowledge and answer all our questions, during a panel discussion hosted by Cecile Vivier, Marketing director of Eurovet.
