Vietnam’s garment exports fell by 9.07 per cent year on year (YoY) in the first quarter (Q1) of this year and imports by 16.59 per cent. US and European buyers have suspended or cancelled orders since mid-March, according to the Vietnam National Textile and Garment Group (Vinatex), whose first quarter revenue dropped by 7 per cent year on year.Retail outlets in the United States and Europe are unlikely to reopen until early May at best, causing extended delays to existing orders while few new orders have been placed, Vinatex’s managing director Cao Huu Hieu was quoted as saying by a Vietnamese media report.Most orders put on hold are for spring and summer clothing lines, while the pandemic is expected to be brought under control by Autumn at the earliest, making it highly likely these lines will be cancelled anyway, he added.The Vietnam Textile and Apparel Association (VITAS) has forecast that the country’s textile and garment exports may shrink by 15 per cent to $33 billion this year. Globally, orders are predicted to fall 29 per cent over the course of the year.

Esprit integrating booked materials in later orders

[ad_1]


Esprit Holdings Ltd, a manufacturer of clothing, footwear, accessories, and housewares under the Esprit label, is integrating booked materials in later orders, wherever possible. Since the end of March, however, Esprit’s German legal entities are under a special legal status called “proactive shield proceedings”, which is similar to Chapter 11 in the US.In view of COVID-19, many apparel factories primarily in developing countries in Asia have reported cancellation of orders from global brands / retailers. Apparel sector being the finest value adding segment in the entire value chain and one of the largest employment providing sector is under despair because of cancelled production orders.In response to Fibre2Fashion’s email to Esprit asking how the company intends to support its suppliers during the current crisis, an Esprit spokesperson said, “At Esprit, sustainability and social responsibility are part of our DNA and at the core of our strategy. For years, we have developed strong partnerships in our supply chain working with reliable factories. Exceptionally, since the end of March, Esprit’s German legal entities are under a special legal status called “proactive shield proceedings”, which is similar to Chapter 11 in the US. Therefore, certain payments for orders with handover to a forwarder before the end of March are right now on hold in a legal process. The final outcome is expected in July.”The spokesperson said some adjustments and cancellation of orders have been necessary due to the decline in demand caused by the COVID-19 crisis. “Wherever possible, we are integrating booked materials in later orders. We are well aware of the consequences for our supply chain partners and factory workers. Their well-being is important to us, as well as the continuity of our business which sustains many people’s livelihood. We are in close contact with all suppliers to ensure transparency in this process. Our goal is to always find a mutually acceptable solution with our partners.”

Employers, workers and brands join ILO on call for action

[ad_1]


International Labour Organization (ILO) along with employers, worker organisations, brands and retailers, is endorsing a call for action by committing to work with governments and financial institutions to mobilise sufficient funding to manufacturers to survive economic disruption caused by Covid-19 pandemic and to protect workers’ income, health & employment.The International Organisation of Employers (IOE), the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), IndustriALL Global Union, Bangladesh Employers’ Federation and major brands and retailers including Adidas, C&A, H&M Group, International Apparel Federation, Inditex, M&S, Primark, PVH Corporation, Ralph Lauren, Tchibo, VF Corporation, Under Armour and Zalando SE are working with ILO.“The economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on this critical industry requires a global response. IOE joins this call for action with the aim of supporting business continuity as well as the livelihoods of workers in the garment industry during this disruptive period. This is a voluntary initiative that focuses on mobilising collective action. It is not aiming to disregard stakeholders, companies and organisation that might not be able to join,” said IOE secretary-general Roberto Suárez Santos.ITUC general secretary Sharan Burrow is joining the call to action to ensure jobs and sustainable business in SMEs in the garment industry are maintained through this tragic period.“We cannot afford the human and economic devastation of the collapse of our global supply chains and millions more in developing economies thrown back into poverty. Jobs, incomes and social protection are the dividends of business continuity and this statement calls for emergency funds and social protection for workers to guarantee industry survival in the poorest of our countries. Leadership and cooperation from all stakeholders are vital to realise a future based on resilience and decent work,” said Burrow.“These principles are the essential first step towards mobilising the funds needed to maintain the livelihoods of garment workers through this crisis and beyond. Concrete action is now needed by the industry to protect supply chains and the workers they depend on,” said IndustriALL general secretary Valter Sanches.“The International Labour Organization is deeply concerned by the threat posed by Covid-19 to millions of jobs in the global garment industry. This is an unprecedented crisis that can only be solved through global solidarity. The priority must be to sustain businesses and protect workers.  At the heart of this is effective social dialogue between governments, workers’ and employers’ organisations. We urge all actors to heed this this call and take joint action that will help us avert catastrophe for the industry,” said ILO director-general Guy Ryder.“The Covid-19 pandemic has severely affected every aspect of the apparel value chain, from the closure of retail stores globally, to the workers, families and communities throughout the supply chain. We recognise that tackling this is far bigger than just one business and requires a collaborative industry response – and PVH is committed to that. We must work together as brands, governments, and representatives for workers as well as employers to establish a more just and resilient garment industry that is better equipped to deal with both the human and business impacts of Covid-19 and any future crises,” said Emanuel Chirico, chairman & CEO, PVH Corporation.“We deeply appreciate the global initiative jointly taken by IOE, ITUC, IndustriAll and ILO inviting all the reputed brands/buyers/retailers and other stakeholders in this ‘Call to Action’ to support the workers and enterprises of the RMG sector across the world severely impacted due to Covid-19. We hope that this will be a collective and collaborative platform where business across the globe will come forward to address the immediate crisis so that the lives and livelihoods of the millions of workers can be protected thereby allowing the RMG industry to sustain the challenges and come out with renewed resilience,” said Dr. Rubana Huq, president, Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association.An international working group will be established within the next two weeks convened by the ILO and coordinated by IOE and ITUC, including brands and manufacturers, workers and employer organisations and governments, to further elaborate the implementation steps necessary to deliver on these commitments.

Capri Holdings commits to net zero emissions by 2025

[ad_1]

On the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, Capri Holdings Limited, a global fashion luxury group, has released its first group-wide corporate social responsibility strategy. The strategy is divided into three areas: Our World, Our Community, and Our Philanthropy. All goals and objectives of the strategy support United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals.   The report builds upon the meaningful initiatives that each of the company’s brands has already been working on, and outlines the company’s global strategy to achieve significant, measurable goals across a range of important environmental and social sustainability issues, including material sourcing, greenhouse gas emissions, water use, waste reduction, diversity and inclusion and philanthropic giving.   Capri Holdings has set targets to be 100 per cent carbon neutral in its direct operations and to source 100 per cent of energy for its owned and operated facilities from renewable sources by 2025. Building on its net zero carbon emissions commitment, and in an effort to deliver on the goals of the Paris Agreement, the company will also commit to set emissions reduction targets across its operations and supply chain with the Science Based Targets initiative by 2021.   The company has additionally committed to, and has already been working towards, a number of important initiatives, including: All plastic in packaging to be recyclable, compostable, recycled or reusable by 2025; 100% of point-of-sale packaging materials to be recyclable or sustainably sourced by 2025; Partnering with key suppliers to reduce water use; Traceability of its supply chain; Sourcing at least 95% of its leather from certified tanneries by 2025; Furthering diversity and inclusion within the organisation, including through the company’s new Global D&I Council; and Supply chain empowerment programmes focused on human rights and fair wages to be implemented in line with the UN Framework for Corporate Action on Workplace Women’s Health and Empowerment by 2025.   The report also highlights the company’s long-standing commitment to philanthropy, including the milestone achievement of delivering more than 19 million meals to children in hunger-stricken areas across the globe through the Michael Kors Watch Hunger Stop programme.   “We are proud of the actions our company is taking to drive positive environmental and social change within our organisation and our world,” said John D Idol, chairman and CEO of Capri Holdings. “Early last year, soon after we created our global fashion luxury group, Capri Holdings, we assessed the sustainability efforts each of our brands was already undertaking, along with the core values shared by them. We also considered the responsibilities we collectively hold to the environment, to the communities in which we operate, and to the people with whom we work. We recognise that as our company grows, so do our responsibilities, and welcome the opportunity to do more. We believe that sound environmental and social policies are both ethically correct and fiscally responsible. To that end, we are committed to improving the way we work in order to better the world in which we live.”   Coinciding with the release of the company’s corporate social responsibility goals and objectives, Idol signed the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative established to support achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.   Capri Holdings has previously signed the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles, the Fashion Pact, the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion and the Open to All Pledge, signalling its partnership with industry groups, corporate social responsibility leaders and other brands to create lasting change and increase the collective impact around environmental and social sustainability.

[ad_1]


British multinational retailer Marks and Spencer (M&S) has paid for all shipped products, and for the vast majority of orders it will pre-pay for all garments and committed fabric, it said in response to Fibre2Fashion’s query about its plans with respect to fulfilling its order obligations and supporting the suppliers during the current hard times.Many apparel factories primarily in developing countries in Asia have reported cancellation of orders from global brands / retailers, in view of the current COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns. However, few companies have also assured their garment suppliers of taking shipment of goods that have already been manufactured.In response to Fibre2Fashion’s email to M&S asking how the company intends to support its suppliers during the unprecedented crisis, an M&S spokesperson said, “We’re very proud to have strong long-term relationships with our clothing suppliers and we’re doing all we can for our partners in this unprecedented time.”“We have paid for all shipped products and for the vast majority of orders we will pre-pay for all garments and committed fabric – which is the most expensive cost for a supplier, and across all our partners we will aim to ensure that no fabric goes to waste and is used at a later date. Most of our orders will be paid through the vendor finance facility we have available,” the spokesperson added.“We fully support the efforts of the Ethical Trading Initiative and our partner the International Labour Organization who are facilitating the coordination and distribution of emergency relief funds, supporting safe working where manufacturing continues and co-ordinating an industry-wide response. Additionally, we’ll continue to support our community projects in the supply chain including those focused on employability, health and digital wages,” the email communication said.

Heimtextil Trend Council sets guidelines for 2021/22

[ad_1]


Heimtextil Trend Council recently made a forecast, at a digital meeting, on how the current corona crisis is affecting interior design, which innovations will enrich our lives in the future, and which trend topics will occupy us next year. The Heimtextil Trend Council meeting marks the start of preparations for the trade fair in January next year.   At the Trend Council, the trend researchers give an initial insight into where the journey in terms of interior design will go in the next season. This year – in the middle of the heyday of the global corona pandemic – the meeting was under special circumstances. In a series of video conferences at the end of March and intensive rounds of bilateral exchange in the following weeks, the trend researchers and those responsible for the trade fair laid the foundation for the global trend analysis.   Once again, the Trend Council for Heimtextil 2021 is made up of the three internationally renowned agencies: Spott Trends & Business (Denmark), FranklinTill (Great Britain) and Stijlinstituut Amsterdam (Netherlands). For the first time, Anja Bisgaard Gaede and her team from Spott Trends & Business are leading the project, giving the Heimtextil trends a Scandinavian touch. In addition to the concept of the “Trend Space”, the Danes’ area of responsibility also includes the development of the Heimtextil trend book, which is used by textile producers, interior designers and interior decorators as a working tool when creating their new collections and furnishing concepts.   “The current situation means that trade and industry across industries are facing the greatest challenges that our society had to face in peacetime. The situation is emotional and also has far-reaching effects on our way of furnishing and living,” explains Olaf Schmidt, vice president Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt. “Heimtextil, with its function as a global trend barometer, has the ambition and always has the task of recognising, naming and sketching the future at an early stage. Even in this turbulent time, our trend researchers do not look into the much-tried glass ball. Rather, they observe the global markets and use the methods and tools of trend and future research.”   During the video conference, the trend researchers identified four design and colour trends that will be staged using products from the exhibitors for the upcoming Heimtextil in the “Trend Space” in Hall 3.0. Visitors to the area experience an exciting premiere in the form of the new “Digital Innovation Lab”. It illuminates the possibilities and additional market opportunities of a completely digital textile value chain – from the design to the purely virtual product used by the end user.    In addition, the “Future Materials Library” launched at the past Heimtextil will be continued in the coming season and curated again by FranklinTill. The library shows a number of selected, innovative materials on a sustainable basis and thus demonstrates their specific potential for applications in the area of interior design. Most recently, among other things, a veneer made from the wrappers of Mexican maize varieties and a vegan wool alternative made from cellulose fibres from pineapple leaves – along with numerous other material samples. The trend researchers also agreed with the trade fair officials to continue the material manifesto and to use resource-saving materials when planning the “Trend Space”.   The Heimtextil Trends, which Messe Frankfurt has been calling annually for more than 30 years, are seen as a trend-setting instrument for the global textile furnishing industry and as a figurehead for Heimtextil. The overall concept includes a large service package for manufacturers, users and dealers: First, Messe Frankfurt invites the industry to a preview presentation in late summer to prepare early for the coming season. In this context, the designers responsible will also present the new Heimtextil trend book – including the current colour harmonies and in-depth information on the individual design directions. The exhibitors at Heimtextil will receive this publication in advance as a valuable guide for product design and collection.   During the fair, the Heimtextil “Trend Space” in Hall 3.0 offers a unique opportunity to get an overview of the state-of-the-art in the field of textile interior design of tomorrow. The show is unparalleled anywhere in the world in terms of the depth and scope of the trend information and inspiration presented.   The next Heimtextil will take place from January 12-15, 2021.
