India Knit Fair 2009 opens its doors on Oct 7
The India Knit Fairs organized in the KNITWEAR CAPITAL OF INDIA, TIRUPUR has maintained the stream of good number of
Buyers/Importers from all over the world including Buying Agents/Houses representing important Buyers and Chain Stores abroad. We have conducted 28 such fairs in Tirupur with the enthusiastic participation of Exporting Community.
Most of the global players are eyeing on India's potential with great interest as one of the key suppliers of Textiles and Clothing in the Post Quota Scenario.With improved technology, we have overcome the limitations like shrinkage and torque in knitted fabrics/garments and this has opened more opportunities.
The biggest bonus of knits is of being able to create and design our own fabric. One can get creative with both colors and the selection of yarns for the very basic knits. Knits have become so versatile that they are not just restricted to apparels or just accessories any more.Not many of us know that at the domestic front knits have entered the world of home furnishings, is capturing the area of lingerie, jewelry, soft toys, footwear etc. Due to its ingenuity of its very basic structural identity knits have conquered the technical and the industrial front too.
Be it Medical textiles, Geo textiles, Industrial textiles. This Knitwear segment of the garment industry has experienced many changes in the recent times.
We would like to emphasize that we have a secured future and Tirupur will bounce back with vigor to show an upward growth in forthcoming years. There is always a niche market available globally and we have to tap it well and one amongst them is the production of garments made out of Organic Cotton.
