Indian Companies Participate In NY Texworld Trade Fair
NEW YORK, NY – The Texworld Apparel and Home Textile Sourcing Show fair, held from July 18 to 20, provided a platform for over two dozen Indian textile companies to present a diverse range of offerings, including climate-smart, organic, and carbon-neutral options.
The India Pavilion at Texworld was jointly anchored by the Handloom Export Promotion Council and the Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council. A majority of the Indian textile companies showcasing their products hail from two main clusters in India – Panipat in Haryana and Karur in Tamil Nadu. The fair highlighted various new-age products made from Bhagalpuri silk, bamboo, jute, and 3D prints.
India’s Ambassador, Taranjit Singh Sandhu, who inaugurated the India Pavilion on July 18, encouraged Indian companies to enhance their efforts to boost India’s textile exports to the US. He assured them of full support from the Commercial Wing at the Indian Embassy and Consulates in the US to facilitate their endeavors.
Emphasizing the existing strong presence of Indian textile products in the US market, Sandhu also underscored the potential for further growth, especially in the areas of sustainable textiles and organic products.
Notably, India’s textile exports to the US during the period of 2022-23 reached approximately $10.4 billion, accounting for around 9-10 percent of the US textile imports.
The Texworld fair, organized biannually at the Javits Convention Centre in New York by Messe Frankfurt Inc, a leader in the international trade fair sector, has been instrumental in bringing together exhibitors from around the world. The event showcases a wide variety of products and services, including fabrics, material combinations, and diverse color palettes, while also providing a valuable networking platform for businesses, retailers, designers, buyers, and industry experts.
