 s. Karin Malmstrom, China Director of CCI in talking with industry media commented on the trends of the apparels market. “Nowadays, Chinese consumers are more concerned about quality and safety when they are choosing textile products and apparel.

U.S. cotton has been enjoying a high reputation in the industry given its quality and strict planting and production regulations. U.S. cotton producers are leaders  in the implementation of best management practices that generate ongoing environmental gains.  Over the past two decades, U.S. cotton growers have significantly improved resource efficiencies including a 31% decrease in per-pound lint land use; a 68% decrease in soil erosion, a 75% decrease in irrigation water applied; and reductions of 31% and 22% in energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.

U.S. cotton satisfies EU Eco-Label standard and clearly passes the regulation as a foodstuff. U.S. cotton is a safe, renewable and eco-friendly natural fiber. In China, CCI attaches much importance to the development of fabric and apparel sector — a steadily increasing segment for domestic volume consumption of cotton-rich fabrics. In CCI’s booth area, we are displaying products from different COTTON USA licensed manufacturers and brands, including, minipeace, Batty Boop, Elle, Levi’s Kids, Teelocker, Fujian Federation, Septwolves, Nautica, Peacebird, Devil Nut, Dazzle, Diamond Dazzle, Dizzit, JNBY, Miidii, Snoopy Girl and New Jersey.

Ms. Malmstrom further introduced, “Under the theme of ‘Come Home to U.S. Cotton’, the upcoming consumer promotion campaign will be different from the previous years. CCI is going to provide our COTTON USA licensees and Chinese consumers an interactive program to further enhance their understanding of the key benefits of U.S. cotton fiber and how U.S. cotton products can have a positive impact on their lives.

Mr. Katsuro Ishida, Vice President for Global Supply Chain Marketing Asia at Cotton Incorporated, noted, “Cotton Incorporated continues to serve as a resource for the world’s textile industry. We remain committed to helping companies improve their cotton business through innovation, fashion and technical assistance.”
