NTA fighting on multiple fronts

BOSTON — The National Textile Association is moving ahead on multiple fronts to assist American home furnishings textiles producers: flammability regulations, for both furniture and home textiles products; trade issues, especially those concerning China; and intellectual property rights.

Flammability regulations for furniture are at the forefront because of the California process to develop flammability regulations, as well as the federal efforts under the aegis of the Consumer Products Safety Commission.

To support these efforts, NTA has established the Upholstery Fabrics Council to ensure its members are represented clearly in this and a variety of government issues, said Karl Spilhaus, NTA president.
