Indian home textile exporters rejoice at Heimtextil

Feb '12
Heimtextil, the largest global trade fair for home textiles and the global benchmark for quality design textiles of innovative functionality, has always been a favourite hunting ground for home textiles exporters from India.

This time too, the latest Heimtextil fair held in January was no exception as Indian home textile makers and exporters participated in good numbers. Despite the European debt crisis, these exhibitors were happy with the enquiries and orders that they received.

“The fair was fantastic for us. We met around 60 customers. We have got around 4-5 orders at the fair itself and hope to convert the other inquiries into orders. Despite the economic situation, we received 20 percent more orders than last time”, said Mr KPS Muniswarn, Joint Managing Director - Laxmi Selvaraaj Textiles, Madurai.

“EU crisis is affecting the industry but even then we are different in our products, packaging, up to the minute colors, etc. We are creative in our designs and packaging and we continue creating new products, which is the main reason we were completely busy and received good orders at the fair”, he added.

Mr YK Jhamb, VP – Marketing, Mynah Industries – Bangalore too was happy with the way things turned out at the home textiles expo.

He informed, “We were participating for the first time as an exhibitor. Since we have most of our clientele in Europe and other countries, it was an opportunity for us to meet them face-2-face. We have been doing business with them since the last 10 years but we got the opportunity to meet them for the first time. So the personal meeting was a positive experience for us at the fair.

“We could get good business - about two month's bookings. Being a first time exhibitor, I would say our overall experience was good. We do look forward and plan to participate next year also. We could meet about 20 new customers.

“One company has already placed its order, and another five clients have raised optimistic inquiries. Since we are in the grey fabric business, it was a good experience for us because we could see many possibilities for forward integration”, he concluded by saying.
