R|Elan, the new-age fabric brand from Reliance, is growing from strength to strength with the tie up with Vardhman.

R|Elan technical team will provide the technical knowhow, specifications and parameters to ensure the best quality fabric is produced.

“We see many exciting possibilities with R|Elan to create new fabric developments.

RIL has partnered with more than 30 players that are equipped to produce new-age fabrics using R|Elan technologies. This strong pan-India network of the Hub Excellence Partners (HEP) will provide assurance to brands/retailers of streamlined production, timelines and standard quality.
