Manufacturing women’s and kids’ wear, Noida (India)-based SDSS Design Studio has recently got SEDEX approval and is moving further to get CT-PET. “Sedex was our own initiative as none of the buyers asked us for it. But we strongly feel that once a company is compliant buyers feel more comfortable to work with it. Sedex was not very difficult for us as most of the systems were already in place. However, CT-PET will take some time as it is a comparatively strict certification. But it will definitely help us to get more orders, especially for the US market and open ways to work with big companies,” said Simmi Malhotra, Director. The company exports to countries like Brazil, Mexico, Chile, and also to some countries of Europe like Spain, Germany and France.
Simmi further informed that currently viscose, viscose crape and cambric are the main fabrics used while embroidery is also very much in use. The company makes lot of western silhouettes along with embroidery and laces. It recently participated in VASTRA exhibition (Jaipur) where its kids wear collection was appreciated by buyers and buying houses. The exporter’s products start from US $ 2.5 for basic blouses and US $ 4 for valueadded products.
