By the year 2010 the situation became worse with the mushrooming of hundreds of new dyeng factories in and around Tirupur city, which became the dyeing suppliers to most manufacturers in Tirpur including Expoknits. That was the beginning of the farmer's agitation towards the textile industry.
In 2011 the Madras High Court ordered all Tirupur dyeing houses to close down unconditionally. In order to reopen, every factory had to prove that the processes and systems were 100% Zero Discharge. It took about 2 years for most of these factories to reopen and some of them who could not reconcile with the new system were permanently shut.
This total reset in minds and priorities paved the way for a Sustainable way of processing in Tirupur which is the knit capital of the world.
At Expoknits, we are proud to belong to this cluster being one of the most Sustainable mega processing center of the world. Buying organic or sustainable garments from us guarantees purity of material and processes and fair treatment and wages of the amazing people that make your clothes. Today we also own a Sustainable Garment brand- GOOD STITCH which is creating great interest among Sustainability minded people.
