Welspun to launch smart home textiles
Welspun plans to launch a series of smart textiles with patented technology, the company said while formally announcing the patented HygroCotton 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,” said Subrata Pal, Business Head - Domestic and Supply Chain Global at Welspun Global Brands Ltd. Although HygroCotton products were launched in the USA by Welspun about four years ago, the company recently introduced these to the Indian market. HydroCotton 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.
