Home textiles maker Welspun plans to launch a series of smart textiles with patented technology, the company said while formally announcing the patented ‘Hygro Cotton’ technology by its premium brand ‘Spaces Home & Beyond’.
“We have filed for 26 patents globally and would launch smart textile products using this technology over the next three years,” Subrata Pal, domestic business head of Welspun Global Brands Ltd said.
Although Hygro Cotton products were launched in the United States by Welspun about four years ago, the company recently introduced these to the Indian market. Hygro Cotton bed linen is all-cotton textile that regulates temperate while the towels with a hollow core cotton yarn are ultra-soft and get loftier with each wash, according to the company.
“Hygro Cotton products comprise 25 per cent of our US portfolio currently and are recording a 15 per cent year-on-year growth,” Pal added.
