Tantu’s recent seminar in New Delhi, was dedicated to highlighting the problems in jeans manufacturing and market and to creatively suggest effective solutions in the key areas.
One panel discussion was on jeans manufacturing. Most panelists agreed jeans manufacturing might have been a science 20 years back but is more of an art now, where it starts with conceptualizing the likes and dislikes of the customer into a design and this art is backed by scientific innovation. The forum also discussed the popularity of striped denim. It was observed that there is a demand for striped denim, but due to complications in its manufacturing it is more costly. However, it was observed, the real challenge lies in producing checked denim as indigo dyed weft yarn does not lend itself to denim wash and the resultant look is not very appealing.
Tantu seminars serve the purpose of bridging the gap between problem experienced and solutions. It stands as a platform to take up the issues and has experts from various backgrounds deliberate over the cause and effects of such issues in the industry. Unlike most forums, Tantu believes a panel discussion is the right way to confront the problems and deduce solutions.
