This article focuses on one of the most notable textile centers of India, Komarapalayam. It is ideally located in the most promising region of South Indian textile manufacturing and trade, covering vital nerve centers like Coimbatore, Tiruppur, Salem, Erode and Karur town. The handloom weaving industry has been converted slowly into powerlooms and Komarapalayam is one of the largest powerloom centers in the country. It is popular for producing yarn dyed fabrics. The powerloom industry is most suitable for our country's economic conditions as they are giving more products at less cost, when compared to the handloom industry. With less capital cost, it provides more employment when compared to automatic and airjet looms in the mills.
