Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Assam will be setting up state pavilions at the premier global textile event.

From Madhya Pradesh’s iconic Batik printing, hand-block printing, Chanderi and Maheshwari silk, Gujarat’s Bandhani, Patola silk, hand-painting, Uttar Pradesh’s Chikankari, Zari-Zardozi, Maharashtra’s Paithani saree, Warli Art, Mashru & Himroo to Andhra Pradesh’s much-admired Jute, hand-drawn Kalamkari, lavish handwoven Dharmavaram sarees and fine Mangalagiri cotton weaves, Bharat Tex 2024 will boast globally acclaimed states’ handicraft & handloom traditions and state’s progressive initiatives in terms of policies, innovative technologies and initiatives like the upcoming textiles parks.


Telangana supporting partner

With Telangana coming on board as a ‘Supporting Partner State’, Anumula Revanth Reddy,  Chief Minister of Telangana said, “Historically, textiles have a unique relationship with the development of civilisation, and India has had a unique leadership position in the world for textiles.

The Bharat Tex 2024, seen in such a context, is a welcome initiative by the Export Promotion Councils, not just for showcasing India’s unique textile products to the world but also as a platform for attracting investments into the textile and apparel sector. Telangana has a vibrant, diverse and rich heritage of handlooms, including Gadwal, Narayanpet, Pochampalli ikkat varieties of cloth, and handicrafts like Banjara art, Bidri, et al.

Telangana is also a leading manufacturing hub for textiles, with a strong presence in all of 5F sectors. With Bharat Tex 2024, we are looking forward to leveraging a sui generis platform to showcase the Telangana textile story to the entire world.”

Commenting on the state partnership,  Eknath Sambhaji Shinde, Chief Minister of Maharashtra said, “I am proud to announce Maharashtra’s participation as Partner State at Bharat Tex 2024. As the largest international exposition in India, the event is shaping up to be the largest platform for industry collaboration and innovation. Maharashtra has been a significant part of the growth story of the textile and apparel sector in India; be it the rich cultural tradition of the Paithani saree or the advancement of Smart Textiles by a few aspiring start-ups.

Further spreading the textile fervour, in the heart of Bharat Tex 2024 lies a unique opportunity for artists and designers to leave their indelible mark and create a piece of history. Ministry of Textiles is hosting the Bharat Tex Memento Design Contest on the official MyGov website, centred around the theme ‘Threads of Tradition and Innovation’ at Bharat Tex. The first runner up will receive a cash prize of INR 10,000 followed by INR 3,000 & INR 2,000 for the second and third winners, respectively. The winning design will be presented to esteemed dignitaries during Bharat Tex 2024.
