More than 24 Indian companies from the apparel, fabric and home textile sectors participated in the Texworld fair being held on July 18-20. After the inauguration, Ambassador Taranjit Sandhu interacted with Indian companies and visited their stalls.  He encouraged them to push hard to enhance India’s textile exports to the US and, in this regard, noted that the Commercial Wing at the Embassy and Consulates stand ready to offer all possible support.

 India’s participation in the Texworld fair is being anchored by the Handloom Export Promotion Council and the Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council (TEXPROCIL).

“Pleasure to inaugurate the India Pavilion at Texworld, Apparel and Home Textile Sourcing Show, #NY. Indian textile companies have on offer a wide range of world-class products, in particular climate-smart, organic, and carbon-neutral options,” Ambassador Sandhu tweeted.

He further added that the world-class textile products from India already have a large presence in the US, but there was potential to do more, especially in areas of sustainable textiles and organic products.

India’s textile exports to the US in 2022-23 stood at US$ 10.4 billion, roughly accounting for 9-10% of the US textile imports. A majority of the Indian textile companies participating in the fair come from Panipat in Haryana and Karur in Tamil Nadu.  Several new-age products made of Bhagalpuri silk, bamboo, jute and 3D prints were on display at the fair.

Twice a year in New York City, thousands of international exhibitors gather to connect with buyers for the largest sourcing event on the East Coast. Texworld New York City was established in 2006, and aims to inspire industry professionals and create opportunities to support the textile and apparel sourcing community by connecting global manufacturers and suppliers to the US market.
