Bangladesh’s DBL Group, a diversified business conglomerate with textile and apparel manufacturing facilities, plans to set up a processing unit fully dedicated to synthetics, according to company marketing head Shohidul Islam. The company will also focus on seamless knitting for intimates in the near future, he said in an interview with Fibre2Fashion.
The company’s vertically-integrated production facility is strengthening its verticals with more varieties. In spinning, it has introduced mélange yarn and to support this line, it introduced fibre dyeing in its own facility, said Islam.
The company sources cotton primarily from India, Pakistan, Sudan and the United States and yarn from India, China, Korea, Thailand and a few local spinners.
Bangladesh’s $26-billion readymade garments sector aspires to reach $50 billion by 2021, he added.
