Latest Trends in Fashion Industry in India

The size of the Indian embroidery market is slated to be around `800-900 crore per annum. Embroidery, till a decade ago, was largely in the unorganized sector with very small units typically with 2 and 4embroidery machines. Today, organized players? account for 60% of the market. "The domestic embroidery manufacturing is almost totally unorganized, with very small units situated in various parts of the country. This is more a cottage industry. Most of the exporters in this segment do not have their own manufacturing facilities, but get the orders job worked from such small units."

Embroidery is preferred over prints because of eco-friendly characteristics (print use PVC). Garments with sequins and crochet laces (of Indian looks) are well received by foreign customers and now such works are being done in sleepwear too. Surat and Mumbai are the major embroidery centres in the country.
