The World Textile Awards, sponsored by The Textile Institute, have announced their winners after an inaugural year in which a raft of entries was received from all over the world.

The top prize of International Textile Firm of the Year was awarded to Textured Jersey Lanka PLC, a manufacturer of knitted fabrics for the intimate apparel and active wear industries. Founded in Sri Lanka in 2001, the firm is a joint venture between Hong Kong’s Pacific Textiles and Brandix Lanka and counts Marks & Spencer, Victoria’s Secret, FILA, Tezenis, Intimissmi and Calvin Klein amongst its clients.

Adrian Dinsdale, CEO of the World Textile Awards, said: “We are delighted to give this award to Textured Jersey. The judges were impressed not only by the firm’s ability to meet our judging criteria but also by the immense enthusiasm and energy that came across in the submission. We have seen some wonderful entries in our inaugural year and look forward to more of the same in 2015.”

Sriyan de Silva Wijeyeratne, managing director of Textured Jersey, remarked: “This is an incredibly exciting award for us to win and reflects the passion and dedication of the entire team. We have made it our vision to build a firm of global significance. Winning this prestigious title from the World Textile Awards is wonderful recognition of our efforts and we are thankful to them for the honour.”
