Welspun India recently launched a range of anti-viral home textile products for India in collaboration with Australia’s HealthGuard Corporation. To be marketed under brands SPACES and Welspun Health, the range includes terry towels, bed linens, rugs, carpets and reusable cloth mask, and is an extension of its recent foray into the health and hygiene category.

“Research has indicated that virus and bacteria can remain active on textile surfaces for a couple of days as per WHO [World Health Organisation], thus the need for anti-viral home textiles,” the company said in a statement.

The new range has been developed using the HealthGuard AMIC technology, according to a news agency report.

Dipali Goenka, chief executive officer and joint managing director, Welspun India, said, “In response to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, Welspun India has consistently innovated to address evolving consumer requirements. Having recently ventured into the health and hygiene category with Welspun Health, we are now launching a range of high quality anti-viral home textiles.”

Dr. Christopher Harvey, chairman, HealthGuard Corporation, Australia said, “Our motto is that every human of the world should be able to afford a hygienic fabric for a healthier lifestyle. While doing our novel work to cater to the global demand, we developed a suitable particle, which destroys the envelope virus cell wall. Enveloped Virus are fatal to human life.”
