Taiwan Textile Fairs in South Asia 2014, held last month, received positive response from buyers and most of the exhibitors expressed their desire to participate in the next edition of fairs, Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF) and the Bureau of Foreign Trade, the organisers of the fairs said.
 
The Taiwan Textile Fairs was held in Indian cities of New Delhi and Benglauru on November 18-19 and 21-22, respectively, while it was held in Sri Lankan capital of Colombo on November 24-25.
 
The Fairs showcased the latest, state-of-the-art, high performance functional textiles to Indian and Sri Lankan apparel and garment manufacturing entrepreneurs. New fabric products showcased at the platform included fabrics made out of coffee yarn, rainwear fabrics, leather auxiliaries for shoes and garments, functional and eco-friendly textiles with special properties like UV protection, odour resistant, etc.
 
Despite a slight decrease in number of participating Taiwanese companies compared to 2013, buyers from across India and Sri Lanka came to source and see the latest trends, innovation and designs that are being developed by Taiwanese manufacturers.
 
The Fairs registered onsite orders worth US$ 450,000, and the organisers expect further business of around US$ 6 million from India and Sri Lanka.
 
The Fairs in India and Sri Lanka were visited by more than 600 companies along with their sourcing, design and merchandising teams. These companies ranged from exporters, importers and agents to buying houses, brands and large format retailers.
 
Wills Lifestyle, Octave Clothing, Tesco International, Reliable Rainwear, Lifestyle International, Wildkraft, Raymond, Traverse, Van Heusen, Parx, Monte Carlo, Rupa, Jockey, and Hanes were some of the leading brands and retailers in India that visited the fairs in India.
 
Some of the leading exporters and buying houses in India that visited the fairs with their teams were Orchestra Buying & Retail (India) Ltd, Tec Workwear Pte Limited, Coach New York, Asmara India, Bedouin England, Indian Design Exports, Gokaldas Exports, Karle International, Shahi Exports, Texport Syndicate, Newtimes Group, etc.
 
Brandix Casualwear, Brandix Intimate, Brandix Textiles, MAS Fabrics, Hirdaramani International, Mas Active, MAST Global, JB Apparels, Emjay International, Star Garments, Crystal Martin, Hayleys MGT Knitting Mills, Voguetex, Linear Designs along with domestic brands like Amante, Avirate, Y & Y, Rough Shirts, Moffi, and TW were among the leading Sri Lankan exporters and sourcing companies that visited the fair in Sri Lanka.
 
“The fairs saw a positive response from buyers and more than 90 per cent of the exhibitors felt this niche platform is a good opportunity to network with top apparel and textile exporters, buying houses, importers, brands, chain stores, etc in India and Sri Lanka and would like to come back next year to strengthen their ties and connect with the companies whom they met at the fairs,” the organisers said in a statement.
