Jute and Sisal.

The company was incorporated in 1943 and is now
managed by third and fourth generation entrepreneurs,
exporting to 35 countries.

dedicated factory in Tirupur, in Tamil Nadu in 1992. As
specialist manufacturers of sustainable apparel we are
now exporting our apparel to clients across the USA,
France, Italy, UAE, Poland, Australia, New Zealand and
the U.K.

Our Mission

The apparel industry globally is undergoing radical
change - a radical raw material shake-up. We
collectively are rethinking the fibers we use to 
manufacture clothing.

Our mission at NC John is to create the most extensive
collection of sustainable fibers on the planet to meet the needs of the circular economy.

We are embracing the rapid textile innovation
happening in labs across the globe, and providing a way for brands to start incorporating these innovative
fabrics into their ranges now.

NC John is where forward-thinking brands and 
organisations can go to access the leading sustainable
next-gen fabrics all in the one place, and convert them
to finished garments designed to last.
