Rajasthan, the land of the Great Indian Desert has been a place of thunder and valor since time immemorial. The forces of nature have combined here to challenge the grit of man and put human Endeavour to its ultimate test. It was in the desert that the LNJ Bhilwara Group set up BSL Ltd. in the year 1972 amidst the stretching sand dunes of Rajsthan. The concept of manufacturing Poly- Viscose Suitings was a unique concept in the history of the then Indian Textile Industry. The people involved in establishing BSL always believe that there are no short cuts to excellence and the desert has given them many opportunities to test their beliefs.


Over the years, BSL has become a multi- million-dollar company and put Bhilwara on the international map of premium suitings. BSL has an experience of over 35 years in textile. It produces over 12 million meters of fabric every year. It has multiple product mix comprising of wool and wool blended fabrics, premium lightweight fabrics, wool modal fabric and Trevira wool fabric. The company is also equipped to manufacture specialized fabric like Lycra cloth. BSL is one of the leading companies in the field of fashion, fabrics and yarns. BSL produces Polyester viscose fabrics that include blends with Cashmere, Mohair, Angora and Camelhair. BSL exports 30% of its product to the international markets out of which more then 66% is from wool and its blends. Keeping in mind the change in customer behavior and increasing trends towards the readymade garment segment, BSL has entered into this field and manufacturing readymade trousers under the brand name La-Italia. Commitment to quality and harnessing state of the -art manufacturing technology has earned BSL the prestigious wool mark and the ISO-9002 quality certification besides numerous awards like the National Certificate of Merit for outstanding export performance.

In its quest for global recognition through quality, BSL has acquired the state of art manufacturing technology and systems. Greasy wool is imported from Australia. The wool is then scoured and combed into tops and dyed on HTHP machines. After dyeing, it is dried using the Stay field Radio Frequency Dryer from UK. The preparation of worsted yarn is done on preparatory machines manufactured by M/s N. Schlumberger & Cie, France. These machines are internationally renowned for the mixing of polyester and woolen blends. For homogenous mixing and more uniformity, the fiber is passed through latest Gilling machines GN 6. Then the process of combing comes which strengthen the fibers thoroughly and removes the minutest of impurities. The combing is done on PB-30, PB-31 & latest PB32 comber machines. The fiber is then put through the latest Gilling machines of GC-15 19

with electronically controlled Auto-leveler and finisher Gill box of GV-11 and then passes through roving machines of FM-7N & BM-15N. Various types of yarn are spun according to customer specifications and world-class norms. The spinning of the yarn is done through state of art spinning machines like ZINSER Ring spinner 421-E from Germany and the COGNETEX IDEA-73 of Italy. The yarn is checked for quality and all the imperfections are removed with electronically controlled LoepfeTK-840 yarn master. The knotless yarn is produced by using Thermo splicer for 100% wool yarn and Air splicer for wool-blended yarn on the Schlafhorst (Germany) 238 & 338 Autocners. Assembly winding and twisting is done on the PSMELTER and PRERNA/STAR VOLKMAN TFO systems by using the Medsan (Italy) splicers for producing knotless twisted yarn.


While the richest quality Australian Merino & Trevira polyester go into blended suitings, the weaving systems also play a very important part. The yarn is woven using Shuttle less P7100 projectile and the G6200 Rapier weaving machines with electronic dobby from Sulzer Textile Switzerland. For extremely precise weaving of monograms we use the Eltex Electronic Jacquard Machine from Sweden. The Warping is done on the Benninger Ergotronic of Switzerland, Comsa Tecnor machines from Spain and other Indian Warping Machines. In post weaving each and every meter of fabric is meticulously inspected for any sort of damage or imperfection. All these advanced weaving technology and techniques enrich the fabric with a superior finish, fall, fell and drape.


The processing stages the fabrics its final shade, depth, luster, finish, fall, handle and drape. This is done with various state of the art machines, beam dying, jet dyeing m/c from Hisaka Auto Jiggers from Intes, Italy are used for dyeing various blends. The processing of fiber dyed fabrics includes relax scouring and relaxed shrinking on Stabila Relaxing m/c from Sperotto Rimer, Italy. This machine produces relaxed fabrics in all blends. The processing of woolen and its blends. The processing of woolen's and its blends is done on the Italian Supervelox Machine. They also have Mercerizing and Compressive Shrinking Ranger to improve our Cotton blended qualities, giving the benefit of shrink free fabrics. A Sellers Shearing (UK) and the Marico Costa Rotary press (Italy) ensures that every inch of the fabric is consistent. The finishing technology includes the Sellers KD Autoclave and the latest Italian TMT 2000. Decatising machines that endow a permanent finish and stability to a wide range of fabric like wool worsted and synthetics. The Sellers Paper Press adds to the finishing touch. In the present market scenario of fabrics, like Tencel, Lyocell, Nucell etc. Since fashion styles change overnight, the demand for special fabrics is ever present. BSL has some specialized machines to produce these high quality fabrics. The Rotor mat Italy handles complex processes like enzyme-treatment, sand washing, and fibrillation, defibrillation, drying and softening with ease. From this, we can modify the surface of any fabric of any blend to achieve a special feel and handle. During processing, Singeing machines from Osthoff-senge, Germany guarantees a homogenous high performance singeing results for all fabrics giving them a very clear and clean surface and eradicating fiber protrusion. Super finish from M. Tech machines, Germany ensures a high quality fabric in synthetic blends achieving surface stability far superior to traditional finishing machines. The cloth also has exceptional luster qualities that make color appear more vivid, even when in a matt finish. Al processing stages adhere to the GFP (Genuine Fabric Process) method that improves the tailor of the fabric. 21

Quality Assurance:
At BSL they have the most stringent standards of Quality Control. The department has highly skilled technical managers and staff. The incoming raw material such as fibers, yarns, dyes and chemicals are thoroughly tested before going into the manufacturing process. In addition, every stage of production line has its own set of comprehensive monitoring systems.

Incoming Material Test:

The ray materials that are used undergo standardized evaluation tests. For dyes the strength, sublimation, dispersion, washing & light fastness properties are evaluated. In the case of chemicals and auxiliaries physical state purity, specific gravity, amine value, cloud point, padding and boiling point are evaluated and tested. Each and every lot of fiber (wool, polyester, viscose tops & special fiber) is tested for fiber fineness micron. (Fiber Diameter), Fiber Bundle strength, Moisture Regain percentage, Finish percentage (as per IWTO standards and specifications). Fiber diameter of wool is an extremely important aspect of high quality yarn and fabric. At the lab the micron is checked on the Wira Fiber Fineness Meter from England that has been certified by the Interwoollab, Brussels. Polyester Viscose and Cotton yarns are tested for-Count, Count Strength Product (CSP (), Fiber composition percentage (Blend %), Twist per inch, Uster percentage and imperfection, Uster Classimat Faults as per BIS/ITWO Standard Procedure. User percentage (unevenness) and classimat faults in yarns are checked on Uster Tester 3 and Uster Classimat CF II respectively to ensure the quality of the yarn to be used for producing fabric of the best quality. Only after the material fulfills the standard specifications, is it allowed to proceed to the production line.

In-Process Testing


Each and every lot is tested for wrapping gm/mtrs and uster percentage after combing at the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th passage of Gilling and Roving. The yarn is checked on the Zellweger Uster Tester-3 and Uster Classimat CFII from Switzerland to assure consistency in yarn quality conforming to the norms of Uster statistics.
