Moreover, the Indian denim industry has evolved significantly by adding fashion trends making its way into other utility-driven products.
As denim mills are now steadily implementing circularity in their production processes, also Indian denim manufacturers are taking strong steps towards creating more responsible denim fabrics that reduce the gap between fashion and sustainability.
Among manufacturers committed to this cause there is Raymond UCO who is offering high-quality denim fabrics using recycled polyester from ocean-bound plastics dyed with Blu 2.0, a unique indigo dyeing process that reduces the freshwater consumption and effluent load in the dyeing process by about 85% and the dependence on synthetic chemicals. The company has also curated a special denim collection that offers ultimate comfort, breathability, and moisture management while also being environment-friendly.
Gartex Texprocess India presenting its textile and garment machinery, fabrics and trims, screen printing and denim will also participate in the show and will present its creative and collaborative platform for the textile industry.
