Sourcing fairs across India draw attention
After a series of dull technology fairs, sourcing fairs of yarns, fabrics and garments have seen a positive footfall. During the period of September 21-26, there were three different fairs held in India and all three proved to be successful. Organized by Sandeep Agarwal, Denimsandjeans India Show (Denim Flexx Menn) in Bangalore witnessed nearly 30 denim-related companies from across the globe under one roof. Representatives of many top international and Indian brands, retailers, export houses and buying houses visited the show. All of them were satisfied with the collection/products displayed there by top companies like Reliance, LNJ Denim, Bhaskar Industries, Raymond UCO Denim, Mahmud Group, Bangladesh to mention a few. Most of the exhibitors and visitors were of the opinion that this kind of wellorganized and dedicated fair, specific to the denim industry, is very much essential in a country like India.
In Tirupur, the 11th edition of Yarnex by SS Textile Media was also successful as most of the top Indian textile giants like Trident, Pallavaa Group, Vardhman Industries, Indo Rama, Aditya Birla (Liva), Amarjothi, Bhilosa Industries, Winsome Group, Wearit Group, Mercury Fabrics and many such big companies displayed a variety of yarns and fabrics. The show witnessed good visitation from Tirupur and nearby textile hubs. New innovations were also seen by many of the players.
Jointly organized by RIICO and FICCI, the 6th edition of Textiles and Apparel Sourcing Fair, VASTRA Jaipur was held recently at Jaipur.
