Find Indian textiles at Heimtextil Russia in September 2021

Jan 25, 2021

Handloom Export Promotion Council (HEPC) has been showcasing the Indian National Pavilion at Heimtextil Russia for several years.

The impressive volume and production capacity of Indian exporters allows supplying textile products and meeting the needs of wholesale buyers, distributors and large retailers worldwide. 

HEPC includes more than 1,500 thousand manufacturers of home textiles, fabrics, flooring, clothing and accessories, which are exported around the world.

The main goal of the Council is to support and advise Indian manufacturers and exporters of textile products, and help to attract foreign buyers interested in Indian products. The Ministry of Textiles and the Ministry of Trade and Industry support Indian companies and give them opportunity to participate in more than 20 international fairs annually, including one of the largest International Trade Fair for Interior Furnishings and Home Textiles - Heimtextil Russia.

Visiting the national pavilion at the fair, you will get new business contacts with producers of interior fabrics, handmade fabrics, terry products, carpets and flooring, textiles for bedroom, table and kitchen textiles. In addition, you can always contact Council’s representatives at the booth to get comprehensive information about Indian textile products, manufacturers and cooperation opportunities.

India is one of the few textiles producing countries in the world that can claim a complete textile production chain and a diverse raw material base: cotton, wool, silk, jute and artificial fibers. The Deputy Director of the Council, Mr. Shri P. Rangasamy, mentions many advantages of the Indian textile industry: 

• Huge textile production capacity;

• Low labor cost;

• High export potential;

• Flexible textile production systems and others.

HEPC and other governmental authorities’ supporting measures for producers and exporters. 

HEPC representatives point out that, of course, the unprecedented difficulties associated with the pandemic, closing of borders, have affected the textile supply chain. Nevertheless, with the gradual easing of restrictive measures, industry is quickly recovering. HEPC plans to enable access to textile products from India by organizing the series of virtual buyer-seller meetings (B2B sector). Shops, wholesale buyers, brand representatives, importers, retailers, etc. interested in home textiles and floor coverings, etc are welcome to participate. 

One of the events where you will have more effective offline meetings with Russian buyers is Heimtextil Russia, which will take place on September 14-16, 2021, in a traditional format. Every year, more than 17,000 professionals attend the fair in order to find new suppliers and exchange contracts directly with manufacturers from about 20 countries, including India.
