Digjam Ltd, leading textile company of India, manufacturing suiting fabrics in an endeavour to expand its textile business and cater to the evolving market trends has entered into a joint venture (51:49) with Scotland based premium fabric maker Holland and Sherry for distribution of their products in the country.

Earlier, Digjam were selling Holland and Sherry products after buying it from them. Now, they will be directly selling Holland and Sherry products in India. Also, they will utilise the network to distribute their own existing clothing and fashion business, both domestically and internationally, he said.

They may use Digjam facility or some other manufacturing facility. They are still in the early stages of the joint venture.

According to Baskar, with industry research reports predicting a strong growth buoyed by both strong domestic consumption, as well as export demand, the Indian textile industry is expected to reach USD 220 million by 2020.
