FABRIC INDUSTRY MAGAZINE LAUNCHED FOR ECO- AND NATURAL FIBERS
Fiber Ethics Magazine -- a publication dedicated to helping retailers
unravel and understand the explosion of "ethical fabrics" -- will be
launched today in North America and around the world.
The print sister of the successful e-publication Fiber Ethics Online,
Fiber Ethics Magazine will deliver quarterly industry analysis,
product reviews and targetted advice to a wide variety of retailers
buying products made from such materials as flax, hemp, organic
wools, kenaf, organic cottons, and recycled synthetic fibers.

meet the customer demand out there for these socially-conscious
fibers have expressed the need for a comprehensive information
source. Fiber Ethics Magazine brings these different materials under
Publisher Randy Mugford, president of HPI Group, says, "The goal is
to provide a platform for businesses, especially small- and mid-sized
socially responsible ones, to get the message out that business and
environmental and social responsibility can, and do, co-exist."
New technologies are literally blending these renewable materials
together. Combined with the spending power of a socially-conscious
consumer base estimated at over 45 million in the United States
alone, there is clearly a motive for more and more manufacturers to
adopt healthier, cleaner and sustainable fabrics.
Fiber Ethics Magazine sheds light on the latest opportunities and
challenges the industry faces.
Most of all the magazine provides retailers with the latest in
product development, styles and technical information.
Fiber Ethics Magazine is published in Nova Scotia, Canada by the
privately-held HPI Group. For subscriptions call 1-800-330-9117. For
