The article focuses on an update workshop on the home textile industry conducted by HFPA. It was encouraging to see representatives from about double the number of those companies, but hardly what one might call a significant representation of the supplier base of the home textiles world. It has been assessed that it's the time to wake up for those who are involved with the industry, supplier, manufacturer, distributor, or retailer. The U.S. federal Consumer Products Safety Commission is about to issue a proposal for all textile products concerning flammability regulations.
