Recently concluded Intex South Asia, 2018 at Colombo (Sri Lanka) turned out to be a good opportunity for Indian textile companies as well as buying agents. A delegation of total 14 members from Buying Agents’ Association (BAA) also visited this 4th edition of the event which was dedicated to yarn, fabric, and trims. The show had nearly 200 exhibitors from several countries like China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and Korea etc. More than 40 textiles companies from India displayed their products here.
TQM Global Buying President & CEO Sanjeev Jain, who was also a part of BAA delegation, told Apparel Resources, “We met few interesting textile companies there and they have innovative textured and different kinds of dobby fabrics. Nowadays buyers are asking for more and more value addition on fabric so it gives more value as a garment so we keep exploring newness in fabrics.”
BAA also had a B2B meeting with a delegation from Taiwan and had good experience about the Taiwanese products. “We use to believe that fabric and trims from Taiwan are costly which is actually not as now we got to know things in detail,” added Sanjeev.
He further added that less exhibitors from Sri Lanka was a little disappointment as these buying agents were expecting polyester fabric suitable for sportswear. Chinese companies had good innovations in this regard.
This year, the show has had 18 per cent more buyers and 14 per cent more exhibitors compared to the last edition.
