The Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council of India

MUMBAI, India—For more than half a century, The Cotton Textiles Export Promotion Council of India has been promoting products from Indian manufacturers to the world.

The non-profit Council, popularly known as “Texprocil,” was founded in 1954 by the government of India and currently represents approximately 4,000 Indian companies of all sizes, including both manufacturers and trading houses specializing in production of cotton textiles.

India exports more than US$ 4 billion of cotton yarns, fabrics and ready-made home fashions. The European Union represents the largest export market, accounting for about 30 percent of the country’s production. The United States is a rapidly growing market, representing about 23 percent of India’s exports of cotton home textiles. These products are sold in all major channels of distribution, ranging from mass merchants and national chains to upscale department stores and specialty shops.

Indian manufacturers are investing heavily in state-of-the-art machinery and equipment, expanding spinning, weaving, finishing, processing and cut-and-sew facilities. The abundant availability of a highly skilled workforce allows these companies to be low-cost producers of high-quality cotton textiles.
The Council works on behalf of its member companies, offering free assistance in sourcing to businesses all over the world. Texprocil promotes Indian home textiles in major international trade fairs and exhibitions, and maintains an office at 230 Fifth Avenue in New York to service the needs of U.S. sourcing managers, importers and retail buyers. Texprocil operates as a liaison between these customers and the Indian manufacturing community, helping companies establish lasting business relationships.
