Garknit - X Kolkata

GARKNIT – X KOLKATA 2024 Eastern India’S Largest Technology Fair from 5th January 2024

Garknit-X is the largest event in the Eastern region of India, showcasing cutting-edge apparel and knitting technologies from around the world. The show provides a perfect platform for participants to gain a foothold in the fast-growing market, as Kolkata is witnessing improvements in manufacturing capacities along with huge investments in new technology. The apparel & textile industry in Kolkata plays a very important role in the economy of the capital city of the State of West Bengal.

Recently, the government and industry leaders of West Bengal have identified five sub-sectors of the apparel & textile value chain that will receive a boost in the form of government help. These sub-sectors are hosiery and innerwear, linen, workwear, textiles machinery, and technical textiles.


Today, leading exporters and domestic innerwear brands, as well as many kids wear brands, originate from this region. The metropolitan city of Kolkata houses a number of varied apparel & textile manufacturing and distributing companies. The apparel & textile industry here contributes to the industrial output, export, and employment sectors of the city. Apart from hosiery, handloom, cotton, Jute, and silk, other major industries flourishing in Kolkata include jute textiles and handloom products.

Since Kolkata is a gateway to this region as well as countries like Bangladesh and Nepal, Garknit-X is very popular among buyers who are keen to adopt modern technology. The Fair will continue for 3 days till 7th January 2024.
