With the country growing to become the second largest denim apparel manufacturing destination worldwide after China and the availability of all types of raw materials, skill-set and resources have been attracting all major brands and retailers from EU and the US to increase their sourcing needs from the country. This is the reason why, the second edition of Denimsandjeans would be held in Bangladesh.
The first show had participation from some of the important denim companies worldwide including Candiani (Italy), Vicunha (Brazil), Arvind (India), Artistic (Pakistan) and participation by major brands, retailers and buying houses including companies like Benetton, C&A, Carrefour, Celio, CharlesVoegele, Cortefiel, Debenhams, Dewhirst, El Corte Ingles, Esprit and many others. Along with all these, some of the important denim and related companies in technology, chemicals, piece dyes are expected to be a part of the show.
The event will witness participants from Brazil, Turkey, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh , Germany, Hong Kong and China. Bangladesh, despite some unfortunate incidents like fire and building collapse in last two years, has become the favourite sourcing destination among retailers and brands worldwide. The country has now also started producing value added jeans and apparel using skills and technology installed from around the world. The country is not only able to import fabrics and accessories from other countries, but its textile industry base is increasingly supporting its garment export sector. Its current denim fabric production covers about 40 per cent of its requirements.
