Why is Tirupur famous for Knitwear Garments

by DHANUSHREE S 30 Jun 2023

The amazing richness of Indian soil that provokes exemplary growth in cotton crops is the principal reason. Around the world, Tirupur's skilled laborers are unparalleled. Knit has been a revolutionary fabric for more than a decade, as it is stretchy, flexible, and breathable. The Tirupur textile industry has units throughout the knitwear value chain, including spinning, knitting, wet processing, printing, garment manufacturing, and exporting. Additionally, ancillary units supply buttons, laces, embroidery, cones, and yarn processing.

Tirupur

Tirupur is one of the most significant economic and cultural centers in Tamil Nadu and has played a major role in shaping India's garment industry, textile manufacturing, and exports. Tirupur is known as the "knitwear capital of India''. A favorable climate, abundant cotton production, and a large pool of talented workers contribute to the region's thriving knitting industry. With a population of approximately 4,50,000, the city is known for its textile industries, especially knitwear. A total of 3,00,000 people are directly employed by the Tirupur cluster. Compared to the rest of India's export economy, Tirupur's exporters are expected to grow much faster. Due to the rapid industrial development in Tirupur, workers from different districts of Tamil Nadu and neighboring states seek employment here.

History

Cotton pressing and ginning mills were prominent in the 1920s. Since the 1970s, the city has produced hosiery products. Due to the high demand for comfortable and affordable clothing, the city began producing knitwear in the 1980s. 

Knitwear 

Knitwear is a revolutionary fabric-making technique where loops of yarn are interlaced, creating a very stretchy fabric that is ideal for creating comfortable and form-fitting clothes. Based on production requirements, knitwear is primarily made of cotton, wool, silk, and synthetic fibers. This type of knitwear is known for its versatility, comfort, and suppleness. Every occasion can be dressed up or down with them. 

Knitwear capital 

Tirupur is characterized by its large number of textile mills, garment factories, and dyeing units. This city contributes significantly to India's apparel industry. In addition to chunky, oversized clothing, Tirupur produces clothing that is sleek and fitted to a tight fit, making them suitable for many different types of individuals. Tamil Nadu has strict environmental regulations for process house owners. Process houses in Tirupur must have a reverse osmosis or Zero Effluent Discharge plant. The integrated garment industry, therefore, has higher investments in plant & machinery and overheads than other knitwear clusters. Despite acute infrastructure shortages in Tirupur town, Tirupur knitwear exporters have made a mark on the international textile sourcing map by working together and assisting each other. 

Thus, J&JP, a knitwear manufacturer based in Tirupur, offers the most comfortable, stylish, and versatile knitwear garments worldwide. You can buy it directly from the manufacturer.
