A good number of them even closed orders within the three-days of the fair or were called to give presentations by buyers, with a general consensus among exhibitors that a majority of visitors were genuine or serious buyers. 
 
On the other hand, a majority of visitors too expressed deep satisfaction with their visit to the shows, as again here too, most of the visitors who were polled said they were able to find whatever they came looking for, whether innovative yarns, fabrics or accessories, handicraft textiles or home textiles. 
 
A few fabric innovations for both men and women on display included a mix of plain and mesh in the same knitted fabric, bonded fabrics, fragrance releasing fabrics, zero-count fabrics, tere-rayon fabrics, 2 x 200's cotton shirting fabrics, Georgette Moss fabrics, a blend of the traditional bandhani, shibhori and indigo-dyed in a single fabric, functional fabrics, etc. 
 
In the accessories section, buyers came across an innovative 3D label, interlinings made from Net Resins, innovations in engraving technology in buttons, narrow fabrics in both spandex and latex, embroideries, Oeko-Tex certified zippers and many other new product developments in the category. 
 
Yarns exhibited by several exhibitors with latest product developments on display included, water soluble PVA yarn, colour zero twist yarn, hollow yarn, grindle yarn, grindle blended with slub yarn, multi-colour fancy yarns, injection slub yarn, flutter, ferry, lofty linen and many other varieties of yarn. 
 
Not to be left behind, the home textiles section also had on display products like blankets, foot mats, etc made from mink and polar fleece, home furnishings, designer towels, bedsheets and curtains, comforters, colourful quilts, cushions, pillows and many more. 
 
Notable exhibitors from India, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan and Singapore included Linen Club, Grasim Bhiwani, JCT Homes, Raymond Home, Morarjee Textiles (all from India), Akij Textile Group from Bangladesh, Beijing Guanghui Textile from China, etc.
