Premier Fine Linens makes 100 per cent fine cotton bed and table linen. The company is part of the Premier Group, one of India’s oldest and largest textile producers. Premier Group is India’s largest importer of Egyptian cotton and also uses the finest American cotton and superfine Indian cotton.
The company operates 3, 75,000 spindles. Fabric production for its own in-house brands is 4, 50,000 meters a month, with another 4, 00,000 meters for contract weaving.
The fine linen division uses 100 per cent cotton, organic cotton, Supima and Egyptian and Supima Tencel blends. All of the dyeing is done in-house, using organic dyes and low-impact chemicals. The company recovers, processes and re-circulates its own wastewater, using 99 per cent of its own supplies.
This division is investing in Monforts machines to enhance the quality of production. The machines are being installed at the fine linens mill in Tamil Nadu. They will handle widths of 3200 mm and typically be handling weights of between 125 and 250 g/m², although heavier fabrics of up to 450 g/m² can also be handled.
The Monforts machines will allow Premier Fine Linens to increase the innovations and product potential offered to customers and make possible better color control and better shrinkage.
