Review: 14th Knit-Tech

“Largely unaffected by demonetization, the last six months have indeed been very good for Tirupur, and which should continue for one or two years more. This is because a lot of work has been shifted from other countries, and most of this work has gone to Tirupur. Basically, garmenting is a volume trade and there is nothing better than knits for volumes. Also, exports of knitted garments are growing from India, and Tirupur exporters are […]


Exporters getting value by working with wholesalers/importers

Since last few years, as market conditions have become more difficult, many of the Indian apparel exporters are just focusing on one agenda, ‘machines chalti rehnee chaahiyen’ – machines should not remain idle.

Wholesalers/importers looking for very wide range of products

These are some of the common statements that small- and medium-level exporters, who are mostly working with wholesalers/importers, give when questioned about their product capabilities… But are these statements really true; and are buyers happy with the products available with the Indian exporters, is another story altogether. Of course, there are also many companies that are doing only niche products from day 1 and wish to continue with the same as they are enjoying the edge […]


Bottoms – A scene in contrast!

Even as most of the medium-level bottoms manufacturers are struggling to keep afloat, others are constructing new and green facilities for bottoms/trousers/denims.
