B.C.’s Supreme Court is set to rule on a lawsuit challenging the legality of synthetic home textile production, which was recently upheld by the Supreme Court of Canada.
The decision by Justice Jody Wilson-Raybould comes after a decade-long legal battle between the B.A.T.N.B. and the owners of Synthesis Textiles.
The case was originally filed in 2014 by the BCTN.
The Supreme Court ruled last year that Synthesis textiles were not legal.
Wilson-rayborough said she hopes to be able to reopen the case by the end of next year.
The company was established in 2014 to produce synthetics for textiles and other textiles.
Wilson-raybour said she believes that the case will help establish the rights of the BFTN and their clients.
“This case is really important to me, because it opens up the rights and responsibilities of all the stakeholders in the textile industry,” she said.
“I hope this case opens up all of them, and that this will help open up the way that this industry can function.”
Synthesis Textile was set up by B.N./M.S.F. and licensed to a third-party supplier in 2014.
The BFTn sued B.K.B., a Canadian subsidiary of Synthesis Textiles, in October of that year.
Wilson’s ruling means the case can be reopened, but the company has until the end and not until May 25, 2021 to file its appeal.
Synthesis, which owns and operates Synthesistyle and Synthesize, was founded in 1995.
Syntheses main product is an acrylic-coated synthetic yarn, called a synthetic blend, that is used to create a range of synthetic textiles including textiles that are used for carpets, carpets for carpentry, carpentry textiles for textile trimming and textiles to make jewelry.
