Bedsheet business experiences boom
Jan '11
Dropping mercury levels in northern India have brought the weavers from the textile town of Erode in Tamil Nadu into action. Around 7,000 weavers are engaged in preparing linen bedspreads in order to fulfill the requirement in the northern belt.

The bedsheet business is experiencing a boom, especially in this winter. The season begins in October and continues up to January-end. Vendors sell the entire stock in these four months. So far, some of the vendors had already sold 90 percent of their stocks. The weavers in the textile town sell about one lakh bedsheets on every market day.

This time the sellers have received enormous orders from northern India Majority of the orders have come from Delhi, Kolkata and Pune. Weavers are working overtime in order to meet the requirements. Most of the previous stocks had already got sold.

Chennimalai is one of the most important weaving clusters in the Erode district. There are about 2,000 powerlooms and 5,000 weavers in Chennimalai and they together produce at least 30,000 bedsheets worth Rs 3 million per day. The Thiruvenkataswamy Street in Erode has emerged as a centre for bedsheet producers. Traders from the rest of the country are seen purchasing linen cloths in huge quantities from this market.

The weavers maintain high quality standards while weaving the linen bedsheets and the prices are also reasonable. Besides, the bedspreads also give warmth and comfort as the yarns which are used in weaving these linens are much warmer.
