“We have a huge order. It’s a litmus test for us and the country. If we crack it, then gates open for more global brands to increase their India sourcing,” said Warsaw International owner Raja Shanmugam. The little detail that those gates might open because of a company named after the explorer Marco Polo deciding to do business with India instead of China would be icing on the cake.
“Our buyers have told us that this year sourcing from India will be much higher than last. We will know about the actual size of increased orders in a couple of weeks. We are just opening up after the lockdown,” said a representative from another garment export company, KRP Mills.
