With the use of contemporary technology, the use of quality raw materials, and increased worker skill, the textile sector in Odisha has enormous possibilities to satisfy the need of the increasing global fashion industry and developing direct clients shopping online.

Odisha has a natural edge in terms of raw material availability and traditional skill workers, which has not been systematically tapped to meet global export opportunities as well as rising local consumer demand. Odisha is one of India’s top ten cotton-producing states, with cotton accounting for more than 60% of the textile industry. The top five states for textile business are Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Haryana, Jharkhand, and Gujarat.

India is a major producer of fibre, which includes cotton, silk, wool, jute, and various man-made fibres. The textile industry in India is still disorganised and operates on a modest scale. To succeed in today’s competitive global market, it is essential to transition to more contemporary technology and procedures on a larger scale.

Odisha was a major exporter of textile products for a long time, but there has been no significant investment or macro planning to modify the manufacturing process via the use of technology and current know-how. There are around 65,000 weaver households in the state with traditional skills, but the government’s strategy must be altered to deal with new advancements occurring internationally in all industries.
