With more than 400 units and an annual turnover of around Rs 5000 cr (including both export and domestic garment manufacturing), Jaipur has come a long way by any definition. Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan, founded by Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II on November 18,
1727 is no longer a cluster for getting printing and dyeing work; in fact, it has already attained the status of an international manufacturing cluster supplying to hundreds of brands, both international and national.
There is a huge demand for Indian textiles in the foreign market and Jaipur has been serving the need of readymade garments like a ‘Boss’ from a long time now. Availability of raw materials is abundant and skilled workmanship has contributed the most to the success of this industry. This has put Jaipur in the limelight and investors are seeing it as a lucrative option for investment.
Over the years, international buyers like Zara, Mango, Macy’s, Carrefour, New Look, Miss Selfridges and K-mart, among others, have started sourcing from Jaipur. While Japan still remains the most important buyer for most of the players, many new buyers have from places like Australia, New Zealand, Russia and the Middle East markets have started approaching manufacturers in Jaipur, tacitly recognising their strengths in giving the best and innovative product range, especially hand work. Majorly known as a producer of printed, dyed fabric and tie & dye for fashion garment industry and Rajasthani prints of Bagru and Sanganer, manufacturers from Jaipur have achieved international recognition.
