India's embroidery market growing at 20% per annum

Embroidery is one of the oldest and most popular form of surface ornamentation of fabrics and garments, and India is among the top suppliers of embroidered fabrics and garments worldwide. The sector is now getting more organised, with large players entering it. Reena Mital & Sudha Swaminathan report

Demand for garments embellished with embroideries with sequins and crystals is quite strong in the international market, as also in India. However, while embroidery is used in a whole lot of products internationally, the market is still an unexplored one in India.

Speaking to Express Textile, Mr Ajay Agarwal, financial director, Pioneer Industries, said, "India is still a virgin market for embroideries. Traditionally, embroidery is used for ornamentation of apparel, products such as furnishings, lingerie, have not used much of embroidery. This form of embellishment is only now getting popular in menswear. Studies have shown that embroidery consumption per person in the country is Rs 8 per annum. This makes clear the huge potential of embroidery in the country, which is still to be tapped."

The size of the Indian embroidery market is slated to be around Rs 800-900 crore per annum. Realising the huge potential of embroidery, some large players have entered the sector, Pioneer Industries being the largest in Asia (capacity of 5 billion stitches per annum), for schiflli embroidered fabrics and crochet laces. Embroidery, till a decade ago, was largely in the unorganised sector, with very small units, typically with 2 and 4 embroidery machines. Today, 60 per cent of the market is accounted for by organised players. According to Mr Gurdeep Singh Bhatia, Aayvee Enterprises, among the leading exporters of embroidered fabrics, "The domestic embroidery manufacturing is almost totally unorganised, with very small units situated in various parts of the country. This is more a cottage industry. Most of the exporters in this segment do not have their own manufacturing facilities, but get the orders jobworked from such small units."

Aayvee Enterprises is into embroidered and printed fabrics, and gets its orders done by units situated in Dharavi and Govandi areas in Mumbai. According to him, Surat and Mumbai are the major embroidery centres in the country, and Bareilly, Muradabad, etc are known for beadwork. "It is not easy to operate in the domestic market, as competition is from these very small units. Aayvee was in the domestic market till some years ago, but as Surat started getting stronger in this segment, we had fewer wholesalers visiting Mumbai. Moreover, the orders in the domestic market are for very small lots and very large varieties, making it suitable to the small units. We found that the export market was more organised, and decided to move into exports." The company exports to the UK, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Indonesia, Malaysia, and is planning to explore Egypt too. "Our realisations are in the range of Rs 400-1500 a metre for hand embroideries, and Rs 50-100 a metre for machine embroideries. Our exports are growing at a rate of 15-20 per cent per annum."

According to him, "India's strength lies in designing. Vietnam is our competitor, and we are hearing that China too is coming up, but India is an important source of embroideries for the world."

According to Mr V Elangovan, SNQC, orders of garments with embroidery are more than that with prints in ladies and girls apparels. Embroidery is preferred over prints because of eco-friendly characteristics (print use PVC). Garments with sequins and crochet laces (of Indian looks) are well received by foreign customers and now such works are being done in sleepwear too. Sequins is in vogue since last 18 months and will be in for another 12 months, he says.

Inputs for the embroidery sector

Threads, the most important component for this sector, is easily available in the country. Demand for embroidery thread in the country is growing at a rate of around seven per cent per annum. And most of the major thread manufacturers are expanding capacities. Says Mr Agarwal, "Threads are easily available in the country, but there is scope for improvement in quality. We have our own in-house thread manufacturing facility, as we are probably the largest consumer of thread in the country. This helps us to control costs. In case of certain requirements, we have to import threads from Thailand, Europe for better strength, twist, etc."

Realising the need for quality embroidery yarns, Indian Rayon has ventured into the manufacturing of viscose embroidery yarns. Consumption of embroidery yarns in the country stands at around 11,000 tonnes per annum, of which viscose accounts for a major share. According to Mr K D Joshi, vice president, marketing, Indian Rayon, "We have begun test manufacturing and marketing of this yarn, realising the demand potential. Moreover, around 3,500 multi-head computerised embroidery machines are being installed in Surat, around 1,500 such machines are getting installed in Mumbai, and a similar number each in Tirupur, Bangalore, Coimbatore, Ludhiana. All these units will require high quality embroidery yarns. Our yarns offer 850 stitches per minute, as against other yarns that lend themselves to 650 stitches per minute maximum." Indian Rayon is now stabilising the dyeing processes, to finetune the quality of the yarn. "We are improving the colour fastness of the yarns, ensuring azo-free dyeing, etc. We will be starting commercial production by December this year, or by January next year. We are aiming at getting 10 per cent of the market share by 2006-07," said Mr Joshi. While viscose yarns are the most widely used in embroidery, cotton, polyester and metallic yarns are also used. However, a large part of the production of these threads takes place in the unorganised sector, with units have a capacity to manufacture 5 tonnes to 60 tonnes of embroidery thread per annum.

As for the machinery, the industry has to import embroidery machines from Germany, Japan, Taiwan, and China. "The serious players use only German and Japanese embroidery machines, those who can compromise on quality go for Chinese makes," according to Mr Agarwal. Says Mr Joshi, "This is a very price sensitive market, and the industry is finding out that Chinese machines are just as good. For those who require 6-12 head embroidery systems, these machines are working well, both for domestic and export production." Says Mr Bhatia, "The price difference is very vast. While a Japanese machine would cost around Rs 40-50 lakh, a similar machine from China is available at Rs 5-7 lakh. This attracts people to go in for Chinese machines."

Pioneer Industries uses Swiss machines for schiflli embroidery, and machines from Germany for multi-head embroidery.

"It is not viable to depend on hand-made works for big orders and there is a need to mechanise all the hand works," says Mr A M Ganesan of Garment Machinery System, dealers for ZSK embroidery machines. Garment Machinery System is planning to introduce machines that can sew beads, in February 2006. ZSK has come up with a new technique in embellishment named StitchTuft. StitchTuft is a soft, though stable cut pile. "It features a unique experience for both visual and tactile senses. StitchTuft is very similar to velour. Depending on the chosen yarn, pile height and pile density, the look and feel can be designed according to one's individual liking. Special machines from ZSK can process a wide array of fancy yarns, ribbons, cords and chains to obtain the most amazing results," informed Mr Ganesan. These materials, which were processed by hand in the past, are now embroidered by the smart W-heads automatically, at reasonable costs and constant quality. The K-head from ZSK is a special embroidery head perfectly suitable for special applications in chain and chenille embroidery. The combination of both techniques within one pattern generates new and very special embroidery configurations.

Tajima has launched a new embroidery machine for chenille stitch with sequin. Called TCMX series, the chenille embroidery heads operate at 750 rpm and ordinary embroidery heads at 1,000 rpm. "Combination of chenille embroidery in six colours and application of options like high speed sequin device allows high precision and higher-value added embroidery," says Mr A Gopalakrishnan, managing director, Unity Overseas, Tirupur.

Coffee Corner / Needle
May 06, 2012, 11:11:23 am
One of the most significant parts of today's home sewing/embroidery machines is often the least appreciated and often ignored â€" the needle. We spend thousands of dollars on the most advanced machines, acquire the best digitized designs, use the most beautiful threads and fabrics to produce our projects, but all too often this is all for naught because we either use an old, worn, damaged, or wrong needle. Needles can be damaged by normal use. You don't have to hit a pin
while sewing to damage it. They can become dull or bent through normal sewing. Even some new needles have defects. Any of these conditions will contribute to frustrating thread breaks and a frayed look on your finished projects. The best advice is this: When you start a new project, start with a new needle. It's the least expensive part of the entire project. Overall, a clean, well functioning needle will result in sharp, well-shaped stitches. Needles are inexpensive and easy to change. Keeping a good needle in your sewing machine is one of the
easiest, least expensive ways to improve your embroidery and quilting

The eye of the needle is punched out during the manufacturing process and it is difficult to make the eye smooth. Only thirty percent of manufactured needles pass inspection and the other seventy percent are melted down to start over. It is estimated that ten percent of new needles have burs that may snag the thread. If you have a problem with a particular thread, first change the needle, even if it is new. This may solve the problem.

Needle Type and Size A general rule is to use a needle whose eye is 40%
larger than the diameter of the thread. A 75/11 or 80/12 needle may be just right for a 40 wt. thread but will not work well with a heavier thread. If you are using a 35 wt. or 30 wt. thread, a larger needle (90/14 or 100/16) is essential. If you are using a heavier thread, a Topstitch needle works best since it has a deeper groove in which the thread lies as it moves through the fabric. If you are having problems running specialty threads, try a Topstitch size 90/14 or 100/16 and the trouble will likely disappear.

Software Comparison

I hope everyone had a wonderful
Christmas and a nice start to 2011! It's been busy over here at
AKDesigns Boutique

Have you ever thought, "What Embroidery
Software is best?", "Which Monogramming Software is best?", or "What's
the difference between Embird and SewWhat Pro?". If not, you must
already have embroidery software that you're happy with.

Because there are so many new
embroidery machines purchased every day, there's no shortage of those
looking for easier, faster, better ways to get their embroidery tasks
completed. So, I thought I would put together an Embroidery
Software Comparison document
because I get asked the questions above so often. One of the reasons I
didn't do it sooner is because the task seemed fairly daunting. First
of all, I only sell 3 embroidery programs and there are so, so many on
the market to choose from. So, I decided to only include the programs
that I sell in my comparison [sorry]. Second, there are so many
features in all embroidery software programs that aren't necessarily
included in the "Features" list that I was scared that I would leave out
an important feature and make someone upset with me. So, if you see
something listed incorrectly, please let me know so that I can get it

Still a little confused and need a


    Easy to use
    Use with downloaded fonts & designs

SewWhat Pro

    Use with downloaded fonts & designs
    Add-on features that can be purchased later
    if needed [Font Engine, Digitizer, etc.]


    Need software that makes building names and
    monograms fast and easy
    Great for
    monogramming shops
    NOTE: To use with downloaded fonts
    & designs you must also purchase the Extended Features Pack and
    those fonts & designs cannot be resized.

Fast Frames-Bags

If you have a way to print a template of your design with crosshairs, print your design.

1. Measure your bag on the horizontal and mark the center with blackboard chalk on the top and bottom of your ruler so that you have two dots the width of the ruler apart.

2. Turn the ruler vertically and connect the two dots as you draw a vertical line the length of the purse.

3. Line up the vertical center line of the template with your chalk line. Move the template
North and South until it is where you want it. Using the chalk, mark the purse at the ends of the horizontal marks on the template.

4. Move the template and connect the two horizontal points. Now find a FF that is bigger than the design...using the template. Put the frame in the bag and clip it. Go to the sew screen and use the scissors button. Using the arrow buttons move the frame so that the needle drops in the center of your chalk cross. Sew on...! If your design is lined up in the center of the frame with the cross and the template fits well within the borders of the frame, you don't need to trace.

Coffee Corner / Zardozi
May 06, 2012, 11:04:57 am
 Different styles of Indian embroidery have been handed down from generation to generation such as Zardozi, Chikankari, Sujni, Kantha, Kasuti, Toda, mirror work. The passion for embroidery in India has led to great experimentation in the field, with several styles, creating dazzling effects such as the 'stained glass' look, the long cross stitch, rice stitch, textured panels and much more. One can see embroidery on wall hangings, saris, textiles and garments, incorporating unique motifs and patterns. Zardozi is one of the oldest and most beautiful embroidery styles of India. It is used extensively in clothing and home decoration. Painstakingly and delicately done by hand, creations in Zardozi work are timeless, unbounded by the shackles of trends.

Zardozi -- the magnificent metallic embellishment of India -- dates back to ancient times. It finds mention in Vedic literature, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, and all accounts of the Sultanate period. The country, from very early times, was known for the use of gold embroidery on a variety of objects including furnishings, trappings, parasols, and equestrian ornaments. The more aesthetic and evolved embroideries were used on court costumes and especially on accessories such as shoes.
The historical accounts of this craft are shrouded in the usual romantic stories and inaccurate data. But the only certainty is that zarkas -- a Persian word meaning zari or gold embroidery -- was widely used in all the accounts. History says that from the 13th century, the craftspeople who worked with this medium, setting seed pearls and precious stones with fine gold and silver wire, were known as zardos workers.

Done with metal wire and metal pieces or sequins on velvet, satin and heavy silk bases, Zardozi is one of the most famous and elaborate techniques in metal embroidery. The original embroidery of Zardozi was done with pure silver wires coated with real gold, and was known as Kalabatun. Though silver and gold wires have now been replaced with synthetic threads, the art remains the same. The use of metal embroidery in Indian textiles and costumes, especially those used for ritual or ceremonial purposes, demonstrates the importance of gold and silver within the culture.
Of all the crafts of the country, Zardozi seems to have flourished and survived to the present day like few others.
