I have created Heartex to provide our European partners the
safety net of working with a local QA agency in India that
understands their standards and requirements fully, and ensures
in their stead that quality and controls are properly
Heartex’s team finds itself in the enviable position of having over
15 years of experience in the Indian market while originating
from a strong buyer background, thus allowing us to think and
act seamlessly in accordance with our partners’ requirements.
I believe strongly in the Indian market and see enormous
potential to continually produce International quality products in
a cost‐effective environment.

India is one of the very few countries that offers the complete
value chain locally. This starts with a high‐quality cotton
production and goes on to first‐rate finishing units.
Few other countries can compete with India in regards to the
size, depth and competitiveness of the textile and garment
The labor costs are among the lowest in the world. Indian
companies offer experience, entrepreneurship and design
The industry is also very versatile: smaller companies offer the
flexibility to treat smaller orders at competitive pricing, while
large companies have the ability to satisfy the demands of the
largest buyers in the world.
