Korean fabrics to be displayed in Tirupur

MoU signed with Korean Textile Federation for supply and display of fabrics

  • 1,500 sq ft fabric display centre

  • Fillip to fashion garments

    TIRUPUR: In a measure aimed at making Tirupur knitwear cluster strong in polyester and polyamide fabrics also, the South India Hosiery Manufacturers' Association (SIHMA) will soon open an exclusive display centre on its premises for Korean fabrics.

    For this arrangement, the SIHMA has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Korea Federation of Textile Industries (KFTI). As per the MoU, the KFTI will send new and first class fabrics to SIHMA once a year for the forthcoming season.

    According to Mohan P. Kandaswamy, president of SIHMA, the display centre will be located in a 1,500-sq ft areaAll type of circular knit fabric with or without special finishes (polyester, polyamide, polyurethane and their blends) and polar fleece - the main attraction by the Tirupur knitwear manufacturers - will be displayed at the centre.

    The basic idea behind the initiative by the Korea Trade Centre, Chennai, was to promote business relationship between Korean companies and the Indian buyers. "When the idea put forth by the cluster development initiative by the Textiles Committee, we saw it as an opportunity. Korea is strong in polyester, polyamide and elastic based fabrics and we are weak in processing the items. They could be a good supply base to us and the display centre will provide ample benefits to the local manufacturers," Mr. Kandaswamy said.

    The exporters could see themselves the variety of the fabric here itself and place orders through the Business Information Centre at SIHMA. The Korea Trade Centre had arranged a videoconferencing in Coimbatore last February to create a strong base between the Indian exporters and Korean manufacturers. A good number of textile exporters participated in the event. The Korea Trade Centre will organise another videoconferencing in June 17 and June 18 in Chennai.
