Business details

Once samples are ready, they are run through a series of quality checks before production. The ISO 9001:2008 certified processes ensure 100% quality check is done all parameters such as fabric strength, colour fastness and shrinkage before the fabric is approved for production. The unique 40 point fabric checking system.
Approved samples arrive at our 11,000 SFT multi-skilled, high-quality production facility of 159 machines that handle woven and knits across various product categories. These machines are manned by our expert tailors who produce high quality prêt-a-porter garments in woven as well as knits. 
Once the production is done, the garments are moved to the final stage where the garments are meticulously finished and finally, packed. About 70% of the workforce is women who come from the local fishing and farming communities.
