Surat : Bamboo Fiber Jari to take Center Stage at Yarn Expo 2023


Surat : In a significant step towards sustainability and eco-consciousness in the textile industry, the 5th edition of Yarn Expo-2023, organized by the Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SGCCI), is set to feature an innovative range of specialty yarns, including eco-friendly Jari made from bamboo fibers. This groundbreaking yarn will be displayed for the first time, showcasing its potential to revolutionize fabric-making while promoting environmentally-friendly practices.

The Yarn Expo 2023 will be inaugurated at the Surat International Exhibition and Convention Centre (SIECC) on August 4 and it will run till August 6.

Traditionally, fabric production has heavily relied on plastic Jari, which raises environmental concerns due to its non-biodegradable nature and harmful impact on the ecosystem. However, with the introduction of eco-friendly Jari made from bamboo fibers, the industry is witnessing a transformative shift towards sustainable alternatives.

The eco-friendly bamboo yarn can be utilized in both conventional weaving techniques and advanced high-speed technologies like rapier, airjet, and waterjet weaving. This versatile and environmentally-conscious yarn provides a greener and more ethical solution for the textile industry, catering to the growing demand for eco-friendly and sustainable fabrics.

Ramesh Vaghasia, President of SGCCI, shared his excitement about Yarn Expo-2023, themed ’84’ (Choryasi in Gujarati). The theme pavilion and the Old Fort will showcase around 84 different varieties of yarn, including the eco-friendly bamboo fiber Jari. Covering an extensive area of approximately 1.16 lakh square feet, the exhibition will host around 90 exhibitors from various regions, such as Surat, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Bharuch, Mumbai, Ichchalkaranji, Erode, Salem, Madurai, Coimbatore, Karnataka, Telangana, Kolkata, Goa (VASCO), and Pune.

Distinguished personalities like Suresh Sodani, Managing Director of Century Enca Limited; Shirani Ariyaratne, Minister (Commercial) Deputy High Commission, Sri Lanka, Mumbai, India; Pankaj Kumar Singh, Commissioner of CGST Surat; Pravin Pansuriya, President of US-based Clinical Data Solution LLC; and Tarun Sharma, Indian Subcontinent Officer, Govt. of Umm AI Quwain, Free Trade Zone Authority, UAE, will grace the event as Chief Guests.
