Birla Cellulose, a manufacturer of sustainable cellulose fibres held a hub-meet in Tamil Nadu’s Karur, to explain potential of sustainable manmade cellulosic fibres (MMCF) in the home textiles sector.

This meet which was attended by 175 home textile producers and exporters from the Karur textile cluster, aimed to pave the way for sustainable innovation in the industry.

Discussions centered on application of sustainable MMCF solutions in home textiles, offering a gateway to eco-friendly, high-quality products that resonate with consumer preferences for sustainability.

The event witnessed participation from value chain partners like AGT Mills, PKPN, Kumaran, and Ultimax, showing a collective commitment to drive sustainable practices across the textile ecosystem.

“Karur’s home textile industry welcomes Birla Cellulose’s initiative to hand hold them in adoption of MMCF,” KG Prithvi said.

“Birla Cellulose solved ambiguities about MMCF, which the members had and also provided a much confident purpose to use Birla Cellulose’s fibres into the regular product offerings as well,” he added.

“The process for incubation has begun and we look forward for more sustainable and economical substitutes for existing raw materials,” Prithvi stated.
