There are very few dedicated Indian apparel exporters that are completely into organic and one of them is Fusion Clothing Company, Mumbai. Out of its total manufacturing capacity, 95 per cent is organic clothing and now it is further expanding its capacity by 50 per cent.
Shishir Goenka, Founder of the company told Apparel Resources, “Currently we are producing almost 50,000 pieces per month and after the expansion, it will be 75,000 pieces per month. It may take maximum three months for expansion. This increased capacity is for existing as well as new buyers.” Once the added capacity will be functional, the company is expecting at least 35 per cent growth.
Talking about the demand of organic clothing, Shishir said, “Demand is there in the overseas market but orders sizes are getting smaller and smaller because big brands are shifting their bulk orders to Bangladesh. Despite this, demand of organic clothing will grow gradually.”
GOTS, Fair Trade and ISO:9001:2008 certified Fusion Clothing Company just completed 25 years of its inception. It offer complete range of knitted organic clothing and supports NGOs as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility.
