New York — Apparel manufacturer Arvind Mills has decided to enter the home textiles market and will begin producing sheet sets, duvet covers and shams for the U.S. and European markets.
The 72-year-old company, which maintains an office here and is based in Ahmedabad, India, currently generates annual sales of $350 million, exporting its fabrics and garments to more than 70 countries, including the United States.
