Vision Textiles, a Chinese textile company which makes fabrics from recycled pet bottles, having noted that the initial reaction for products made from recycled pet (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles has been good in India, especially in the making of childrenâ€™s school uniforms, is on an expansion drive in India, informed Founder and CEO Monique Maissan.
The company, which sells garments under the Waste2Wear brand in India, is now in discussion with possible investors to scale up business in the country. Itâ€™s also looking for partners.
Besides, Vision Textiles are working with TARA looms in Delhi for setting up a new project â€“ Waste2Weave in India. It is aimed at developing new fabrics and handloom techniques to empower women. said the CEO.
The reaction received for their products varies in different geographies. In China, the Government is promoting â€˜greenâ€™. So when the word â€˜recycledâ€™ is used, there is some hesitation among the consumers. But in Malaysia, the response for their products has been phenomenal.
Vision Textiles has also entered Europe. The initial response has been positive, but penetrating into the US has been tough. They started their Indian operations just a year-and-half back.
Rajvanti S and PT Mani, Directors of Vision Textiles (India operations), said that the company sources yarn from units located elsewhere in India, blends it with cotton or polyester for making the fabric and ultimately stitching the garmenti. They ensure that the yarn is made from recycled pet bottles.
At the garment making unit at Kalapatti in the suburbs of Coimbatore the entire product range are displayed including sports wear, ladies dresses, upholstery and curtains.
