On the occasion of entering 20th Year of “Freeman’s Apparel Manufacturers Direc-
tory” this year, I expressed my thankful gratitude to all of you for extending support
and assistance to run this yearly publication smoothly. With various result-oriented
schemes, including those for the development of textile sector in the North East
Region, initiated by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently, I am confident that
textile and garment sector will find better days tomorrow and we will continue to
serve you and share the moment of the golden period.
To mark this glorious year of our publication, we will start meeting door-to-door with
all major retailers of the country from the month of October and hand over them this
directory. The outcome of the meeting will be shared with our advertisers later. I am
happy to announce that a good number of startups have already enlisted their names
in this directory to join the mainstream of the business and enhance their trade fur-
ther. I hope more and more manufacturers will join this directory for the promotion
of their business in this highly competitive market.
Our Website www.indian-apparel.com which began its operation 15 years back, has
secured a commendable rank in the global platform because of its successful drive
to uphold the day-to-day development of textile and apparel sector to the viewers.
With providing the latest scenario in the manufacturing front of the readymade gar-
ments in the website, we have received a significant response both from national and
upcoming brands. Online Weekly Newsletter, wrapping up of the best and important
news of the week, rose this service to a new height even internationally. The e-version
of our magazine 'Apparel Talk' and Directory is also available at our website with a
provision of easy searchable option to help match our users/ visitors their require-
ments. Since social media, blogging is the ongoing trend, we are consistently posting
and updating every day actively on Indian Apparel Blog, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn,
Pinterest, Google+, Tumblr to reach out to masses both in India and outside the
country. This can be used for the promotion of your brand and business.
I am glad to inform you that the membership of our quarterly magazine 'Apparel Talk'
has been significantly increased because of its diversified coverage of textiles and
apparel related development in the country. To meet the growing demand, we have
stepped up coverage of more upcoming manufacturers for their proper exposure to
the national level. This received a tremendous response from the startups who have
shown their keen interest about the publication. However, several other plans and
programmes are also in the pipeline to improve the publication further and serve our
readers and subscribers better in future.
