A bag full of coloured building blocks is something that comes to my mind when I look at the audience of the SDC International’s first summit in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The summit had a gathering of textile testing laboratories, brands and retailers, buyers, dyehouses and academics. Representatives from Switzerland, India, Sri Lanka, South Korea and Hong Kong were among the attendees. The mission of the summit was to create awareness about chemical compliance among three major sectors of the textile supply chain namely certification, coloration and fashion.
SDC’s Colour Experience team have recently been working with The Piece Hall in Halifax, UK, on a range of educational activities. We asked the Learning team at The Piece Hall to tell us more.
