Sunder Genomal, managing director at Page Industries said, “The first quarter of 2015-16 was unique and eventful as we launched our women's sleepwear range Relax this quarter.”

“Comfortable and stylish, these cotton modal blend pajamas trimmed with delicate feminine lace edging has already received a very positive response from all our loyal women customers,” he added.

“This is an exciting category that will further help establish the Jockey brand as a woman's brand as well,” Genomal informed.
