During the fair, AITEX will announce the second edition of the 2019 Business Awards to recognise the work of Spanish textile companies. The awards will be in two categories: Innovation and Sustainability.
The objective of AITEX at the event is to present to the industry the principal strategic areas of activity as regards innovation and the research projects and training services the Institute can offer.
Innovations in home textiles
The Institute also certifies decorative and upholstery fabrics in compliance with fire behaviour tests for the UK, France, Italy, the USA and others. The event will also be an opportunity to present the full range of OEKO-TEX® certificates, and the new wider scope of products covered by them. OEKO-TEX® is recognised around the world, demonstrates that a product is not harmful to health and that the manufacturer is environmentally responsible, and respects workers’ rights.
