Report features wide selection, product trends
Domestic access to various raw materials enables India’s fashion accessories industry to offer a wide range of products. The selection comprises traditional and modern designs made of cotton, leather and silk.
In bags, classic styles feature nature-inspired prints, while contemporary ones combine leather and traditional patterns such as ikat, gara and zardozi. Animal, floral and checkered patterns are common in scarves or shawls.
In line with efforts to expand market reach, many suppliers will be releasing basic and simple pieces that appeal to a wide range of buyers. A number of companies intend to differentiate their models through bold colors and ornate embroidery, sequins and bead detailing.
“India fashion accessory suppliers will be focusing on simple designs with elegant but rich detailing to boost exports and cater to the growing demand for handmade accessories,” said Bushra Baseerat, export consultant for India.
Some suppliers will be offering more multifunction models. Handbag makers, for example, are creating pieces that can be converted into backpacks.
Fashion accessory suppliers in India are also making their products more environment-friendly by using jute or bamboo in their designs. Some companies are adopting natural dyes made from beetroot, turmeric, indigo and other plants.
