BIFMA Completes Woven Fabric Standard

The recently completed Standard for Woven Textile Characteristics Tex4.1-2004 from The Business & Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association (BIFMA) International, Grand Rapids, Mich., now is available on the organization's website, www.bifma.org. The standard is the first document published by BIFMA's Supply Chain Management Committee. The committee's Textile Subcommittee, working with the Association for Contract Textiles, studied the textile supply process for standard fabrics purchased directly from textile mills, as well as the direct or indirect supply of customers own materials from jobbers. The standard, which applies to all sellers of woven fabrics, defines policies for textile flaws and provides a common basis for distinguishing the face from the back of a woven fabric.
