Shahi’s vertically integrated textile operations are at the cutting edge of innovation in the apparel industry. We operate textile mills for producing woven and knitted fabrics, sourcing the high-quality cotton which is then processed into textiles for garments and other products. A significant proportion of the cotton we source is certified as sustainable either by the Global Organic Textile Standard or Better Cotton Initiative. Our textile mills provide around 80 percent of the fabric requirement of our 65 factories, where we manufacture garments for some of the world’s biggest brands. Shahi’s in-house design team and laboratory ensure seamless integration of our customers’ needs from fiber to final product.

Spinning, Knitting & Processing

In 2014, Shahi set-up a USD 130 million world-class, spinning-to-shipping facility located in Shimoga, Karnataka. The campus, which is spread over 250-acres, houses best-in-class technology from around the world for automated material flow and quality assurance. It delivers a wide range of knitted fabrics including jersey, interlock, pique, lacoste, rib, French terry, jacquards and auto stripes, in cotton and cotton blends, using low to high yarn counts.

In 2018, 30 percent of the water demand at Shimoga has been met through rainwater harvesting.

Weaving & Processing

In March 2018, Shahi launched its second wovens plant, spread across 900,000 square feet in Shimoga, Karnataka. The plant has been designed to have a single-line layout from singeing to finishing which optimizes material flow distance.

Our wovens facilities process cotton, rayon, linen fabric and blends; from lightweight tops fabric to heavy bottoms fabric. These facilities can produce a variety of finishes including standard finishes like mercerization, brushing and peaching, to highly specialized proprietary finishes such as easy-care, wrinkle-free, and silky finish.

The Sarla Fabrics Limited (SFL) plant in Ghaziabad is Organic Content Standard (OCS) and Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified. It is also ISO 14001 certified.
