Neva’s thrust on enhancing quality standards, adopting innovations and imparting functionality, makes it unique in the very competitive apparel industry.

Whilst, speaking about the partnership, Mr Nirmal Kumar Jain, Managing Director, Neva Garments Limited said “We are proud to be associated with R|Elan™ as it has opened up the whole new gamut of offerings in the functional and performance enhancement apparel segment. Neva, traditionally, has been a cotton dominated brand in all its segments. However, now our association with R|Elan™ provides us avenues to explore the new growth opportunities. We are well-known for Quilted Thermals and we have strong loyal customer base across India. Despite, only four years of our existence in active wear, we are witnessing a rapid growth in the segment.

We are confident that our consumers will seize the opportunity to possess functional and performance enhancement apparels as we use R|Elan™’s new generation fabrics with various functional properties like moisture management, wicking, odour-free antimicrobial etc. The products like R|Elan™ Kooltex, R|Elan™ Feelfresh, R|Elan™ Airtherm have a great potential to combine with cotton and also on a stand-alone basis it forms the great garments with aesthetics and functionality without major increase in costs. We call them ‘Smart Garments’ and we see a tremendous potential for these products among our consumers.

We have already started leveraging the strong synergies between Neva and R|Elan™ and we are contemplating to extend this partnership in both domestic and international markets in varied applications like activewear, athleisure, sportswear, innerwear, sleepwear, socks etc. We expect our bond will grow stronger as we explore newer opportunities together.”
