Texworld Paris, the undisputed leader when it comes to sourcing for fabrics, components, trimmings and materials for the clothing industry will showcase six Sri Lankan garment manufacturers at the September 2019 edition this week in Le Bourget, Paris.

Exhibitors from Sri Lanka include Apparel Technologies, Daya Apparel, Harward Fashion, J.K Garments, JIA Moda and Kash Garments under the umbrella of the Export Development Board (EDB).

Sri Lanka also had a fashion show (catwalk) Wednesday (18) that displayed products of the Sri Lankan garment manufacturers participating at the trade fair.

Kash Garments Director Rohana Paranavithana said that the fair was progressing well and that they were hoping to have good contracts as buyers are visiting them from Europe.

Combined with Apparel Sourcing and Leatherworld, a total of 1,799 exhibitors are participating in the September 2019 edition of Texworld Paris. The trade fair remains an exceptional event for everyone involved in creating fashion and it constitutes a real hub for finding inspiration and for networking.

At present the show has recorded over 29,000 visitors from all over the world. Visitors from European countries remained loyal to the show, which is a good reflection of Europeans’ keen interest in the exhibitors at both of the shows.
