Chit Chat with Mr Justin from TCE Denim
We also had a small chat session with Mr Justin from TCE who looks after marketing. He mentioned that we want to be a GREEN FACTORY and one of the most important sustainable mills in the world. He mentioned about some of the new concepts created recently by TCE. These include GERM KILLING denims which can help customers to use their denims without washing for a long time. Besides there are other concepts like COLOR DENIM with one machine completely dedicated to colors. They also created PAPER DENIM which incorporate yarns made from Paper pulp and are 100% organic denim , LESS WATER denims dyed using much less water with ADVANCED DENIM system from ARCHROMA . Besides , Nettle denim , PET Bottle denims, BCI cotton denims are also some of the ECO SUSTAINABLE concepts that they are doing.
I was also invited by TCE to be a part of Denim Talks and presented a seminar titled ‘ Denim Scenario & Ready To Wear 2018 ‘. Made a presentation on how the Global Denim Industry changed in past few years keeping US and EU in the center. Also spoke about changes in the consumption trends of Denim in UK and Germany for both Men and Women since 2014 and how the Asian markets, specially India are changing and how it will affect the industry .
