Fifa tees come from India’s Tirupur


Tirupur has shipped T-shirts, tracksuits, and caps to Qatar for the Fifa World Cup.

Some 17 garment consignments have been dispatched to Doha from Kerala. This export has helped Tirupur’s garment exporters and brought them some cheer.

Tirupur’s apparel exports fell 21 per cent in October 2022 from October 2021. Of this, knitwear exports, which Tirupur is known for, fell almost 40 per cent. And this was the third straight month knitwear exports contracted. Average capacity utilisation at garment exporting units in Tirupur is 30 per cent now. The US, EU and the UK account for 85 per cent of shipments from Tirupur. With high inflation in these economies, clothing is not a priority for consumers now. Further, with buyers saddled with huge stocks, they are postponing delivery. This has resulted in stocks piling up at the producers’ end.

Tirupur in Tamil Nadu started out as a knitwear cluster but has since completely changed into the nation’s center for worldwide textile manufacture.By becoming a truly sustainable global apparel-making center, Tirupur has created a precedent. Currently, India's knitwear cluster has undergone a complete transformation into a major global center for the production of garments.For the last ten years, the cluster has been strictly pursuing the ZLD model and along the way has also taken up multiple projects aimed at reducing its carbon footprint significantly.
