To provide instant service of sampling, and to drive co-creation programmes with global brands in the US, Aditya Birla Group’s Birla Cellulose has launched its premier international design studio in New York. The studio will display a range of over 300 varieties of fabrics. It will also display 74 shades of dope dyed spunshades fibres from Birla Cellulose.
The fabrics created by Birla Cellulose’s value chain partners in India will display the best of innovations done on modal, viscose and spunshades, apart from the core fabric collection.
The design studio will offer a one stop solution for brands in the US in terms of fabric samples in viscose, modal and spunshade. Apart from fabric display, the studio will be actively involved in supply chain support from India, technical support to fabric manufacturers, fabric swatch support followed by yardages for making prototype samples. The active presence of the studio in New York will be a step towards reducing lead time for the buyers.
“It is a historic moment for all of us at Birla Cellulose as we embark on this new journey,” said Rajeev Gopal, chief marketing officer of Grasim Industries Limited, a flagship company of Aditya Birla Group, at the opening ceremony.

Thus, re-enforcing the group’s philosophy of constant innovation to suit changing consumer needs,” said Gopal.
