Apparel Online - - INDUSTRY LIVE -

The re­cently con­cluded In­tex South Asia,2018 at Colombo (Sri Lanka) was a good op­por­tu­nity for

In­dian tex­tile com­pa­nies as well as buy­ing agents of In­dia. A del­e­ga­tion of to­tal 14 mem­bers from Buy­ing Agents’ As­so­ci­a­tion (BAA) vis­ited this 4th edi­tion of the event which was ded­i­cated to yarns, fab­rics and trims. The show too had nearly 200 ex­hibitors from sev­eral coun­tries like China, Tai­wan, Hong Kong, In­done­sia and Ko­rea etc. More than 40 tex­tiles com­pa­nies from In­dia dis­played their prod­ucts at the event. San­jeev Jain, Pres­i­dent & CEO, TQM Global Buy­ing who was also a part of BAA del­e­ga­tion told Ap­parel On­line, “We met few in­ter­est­ing tex­tile com­pa­nies there and they have in­no­va­tive tex­tured and dif­fer­ent kinds of dobby fab­rics. Nowa­days, buy­ers are ask­ing for more and more value ad­di­tion on fab­ric, so that it gives more value as a gar­ment. We there­fore keep ex­plor­ing new­ness in fab­rics.” BAA also had a B2B meet­ing with a del­e­ga­tion from Tai­wan and had good ex­pe­ri­ence about the Tai­wanese prod­ucts. “We used to be­lieve that fab­ric and trims from Tai­wan are costly which is ac­tu­ally not true as now we have got to know things in de­tail,” added San­jeev. He fur­ther stated that com­par­a­tively fewer ex­hibitors from Sri Lanka was a lit­tle dis­ap­point­ment as these buy­ing agents were ex­pect­ing polyester fab­ric suit­able for sportswear. Chi­nese com­pa­nies had good in­no­va­tions in this re­gard. In the present year, the show saw 18 per cent more buy­ers and 14 per cent more ex­hibitors com­pared to the last edi­tion.
