Surat to process India's first Bemberg silk fabric

Japanese fibre yarn manufacturing company Asahi Kasei Fiber Corporation is collaborating with Surat Art Silk Cloth Manufacturers' Association (SASCMA) to process and develop India's first Bemberg silk fabric, a substitute for natural silk, according to a report in Times of India.

Japan, Italy and France have a monopoly in manufacturing this fabric from Bemberg yarn, which is widely used in western outfits, linings in coats, innerwear, sportswear, T-shirts, non-woven technical textiles, etc.

Over the years, Asahi Kasei has improved the quality of Bemberg and expanded its applications over the years, Now, Surat will be the first centre in India to process the fabric from Bemberg yarn, a trademark of Asahi Kasei Fiber Corporation, which is a part of Asahi Kasei group.

Asahi Kasei's general manager of Bemberg sales department, Kamiyama San and other officials visited Surat last week to hold discussions with SASCMA board members to develop and process Bemberg fabric. SASCMA is the sole distributor of Bamberg yarn from Asahi Kasei in the city. Around 5,000 tonnes of Bemberg yarn is being imported annually from Japan for the last 40 years to manufacture duppatas and sarees.

"The company officials plan to come to Surat in March to develop Bemberg fabric from coarse denier," Man-Made Textile Research Association secretary Dinesh Zaveri said.

The Japanese company will display all the fabrics manufactured from Bemberg coarse denier yarn at Global Fabric Resource and Research Centre set up by Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry at Nanpura, the report said. (SH)
