|Among the many details at ASW ’19, the one that really attracted attention were the seamless T- shirts worn by the ASW team. These beautifully crafted team T-shirts can be attributed to Sakho Enterprises, the Innovation Partner for the event. The company has reconnected with the upcoming edition of ASW in February 2020 as Merchandise Partner.
|A young but highly professional company, run by an experienced team, Sakho Enterprises was established in 2011 to provide affordable automation solutions to the apparel industry. The company believes in bringing up industries’ innovation and uniqueness with respect to machines and applications. It is a matter of pride for the company led by the dynamic Anshuman to have been always associated with foreign companies, who are masters in their respective fields, such as Martin Group.
|Armed with some of the best technologies in the world - H&H, NISSIN, BKS, ENS, Leonard & Thermotron to name a few, SAKHO has become a name to reckon with in the apparel manufacturing industry in the South Asian region. Among its several initiatives to support the industry, SAKHO introduced a design studio, UNIK TECHNOLOGY in Bengaluru in 2016 to design and manufacture samples using bonding and seam sealing technology with the expertise of its principal H&H and business partner RCG.
|Bonding (Sew-free or Stitch-less) is very popular in the international market these days as one can see bonded applications in all major brands. SAKHO enables the apparel industry to adapt this concept with practical bonding technology at every step whether it is in sampling, job work, application engineering, trims such as tapes, adhesive and logos, bulk production, machine supply, factory set-up. The use of such technology will add value to the apparel industry that is searching for differentiation and higher value production options that are viable.
|“Almost everyone has adopted the technology internationally and the seam sealing or bonding technology is getting popular throughout various categories like outerwear and intimatewear. In the domestic market, a few players like Benetton, Raymond, Allen Solly, Classic Polo, Rough & Tough, Wildcraft and Cult have started using the technology and I foresee growth as consumers really appreciate the aesthetic value of such garments,” says Anshuman.
|At the same time, the company also delivers tailor-made solutions to its customers, who are demanding quality right from application engineering to manufacturing. Manufacturing processes with futuristic trends are becoming very challenging in present time. New knowledge in this field will aid in the advancement of various technologies that would be needed to achieve industrial competitiveness.
|“It’s a great platform given to Sakho, not just for branding but also communicating our message to the industry. We are also providing our technology to the attendees of the show, and we think it is the best way to introduce ourselves where the ASW team will be wearing our product offerings, drawing attention to the technology behind the garment.”
|Comprehensive and up-to-date, precision engineering is cross-disciplinary. Built on collaboration and mutual respect, SAKHO is committed to honesty and fairness in all operations with the utmost concerns of its associates, customer and community. Active support of H&H has helped the company stand firmly on integrity, vision and a caring approach and enables it to remain dedicated to the never-ending horizons of imagination.
|With partners like SAKHO that are deeply engaged with the apparel industry, ASW 2020 is gearing up to set another benchmark as far as events that centre around sourcing are concerned. With synergy between various stakeholders of the industry, the show will represent a seamless value chain from back end to front end of the fashion industry.
