The 4-day TexTech Bangladesh International Expo 2022 ended on September 3 with buoyant responses from manufacturers, suppliers, and buyers.
The global suppliers of yarn, fabric, dye chemicals and machinery are eying to grab the growing apparel sector of Bangladesh by increasing their supplies, they said to the media on the sideline of the expo.
Cedaar Textiles Pvt Limited, a Bengaluru-based company, produces man-made fibers (MMF) and exports 60% of them to Bangladesh.
Gobinda Ghosh, marketing manager of Cedaar Textiles, told the media that they are expanding their business to non-cotton-based goods.
Hebei Linen Home Textile Ltd is a Chinese home textile fabrics manufacturer based in the Shijiazhuang City of Hebei Province.
They produce fabrics in their 280 sets wide rapier loom, mainly grey fabric for pure hemp and cotton linen and Tencel linen grey fabric.
Speaking to the media, Tina Ma, manager of sales of the company said that they participated in this fair for the first time.
“Bangladesh is doing well in exporting home textiles. We want to further expand our market here,” she said, adding that Bangladesh is also the second largest apparel exporter, and therefore, the market is undeniable.
Dodhia Synthetics Ltd, a Mumbai-based company, produces petropoly – dyed, fancy, and recycled yarns – from PET bottles.
Gururaj Chawan, the coordinator of export sales of the company, told the media that the apparel sector is moving towards sustainability and circularity and so they produce petropoly, a planet-friendly yarn that reduces dependency on non-renewable natural resources and helps the environment by keeping bottles and plastic out of landfills.
