Future trends to focus on tech and sustainability

Various fabric finishes have been initiated that are durable and utilitarian. “Blends are here to stay,” Jhunjhunwala explains. Key blends available today include cotton linen, linen Tencel, Excel linen, knit linen, cotton Tencel, cotton modal, cotton polyester, etc. “Floral prints will be popular alongside fresh bold brush strokes motifs.

The new and improved woven fabric used in this collection along with an earthy color palette makes it a crisp and sharp range. “We are relaunching this collection along with accessories like totes and shoulder bags,” adds Jhunjhunwala.

Wedding season brings in optimism

Talking about business, Jhunjhunwala says, “The current season has largely been flat although some weeks have witnessed exponential growth. There hasn’t been any natural increase in walk-ins.” The upcoming season too is likely to be volatile due to the political scenario and upcoming elections, he feels. However, the wedding market is strong and the brand is optimistic about it.

Inventory management and control is one of the biggest challenges facing the industry today followed by working capital. “Emerging opportunities will be in the digital space, e-commerce, and omni-channel. We are present in over 1,000 MBOs, over 100 EBOs and large format stores like Central, Shoppers Stop, Pantaloons, Brand Factory, Reliance, Max,” observes Jhunjhunwala.

Although online sales form a small part of Turtle’s business, the brand plans to strengthen its e-commerce presence “as a lot of people first view a product online and then come to our store to purchase it. We also plan to expand our business in Bengal and UP,” he sums up.
