Origin Africa to feature cotton fibers

Origin Africa will be held in Kenya from November 10 to 12, 2014. The concept around Origin Africa is to capture the spirit, style and innovation of modern Africa. This is an event dedicated to improving African cotton, textile and apparel trade. It aims to make Africa a source of cotton, textile and apparel products for domestic, regional and international buyers. Regional and international buyers of textile and apparel, mainly from US and EU brands, will also be attending.

The event is organized by Africa Cotton & Textile Industries Federation (ACTIF), a regional trade body formed in June 2005 by the cotton, textile and apparel sectors from across sub-Saharan Africa to create a unified and recognized voice in both regional and global trade affairs. Major textile and apparel producers from ACTIF member countries will exhibit at Origin Africa 2014.

Countries participating include: Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mauritius, Cote d’Ivoire, India, Germany, US. Designers will exhibit their wares. A special section has been set up that will include home textiles, home décor, accessories, leather products and gifts.

For the first time, Origin Africa will have a cotton fiber section, where leading cotton fiber suppliers from at least 10 African countries have committed to participate. The objective is to develop linkages with spinners, technology suppliers, service providers and among cotton suppliers.
