About us

 
 

We are in the business of creating fabric. For everyone. For every occasion. We have interwoven expertise, technology and business acumen to create a fresh pattern of growth for the Group.

As pioneer industrialists in the Textile industry, over the last 40 years, we have invested in quality in everything we do; and have scaled consistently in quantity.

While there have been many different socio-economic challenges over these decades, we have persevered and achieved growth on every front – people, processes and in our plants too.

From our humble beginnings, our Founder, late Mr. Vishwanath Agarwal, instilled in us the principle of constantly adapting and evolving with the times. This was then spearheaded by his sons – Mr. Rajendra Agarwal & Mr. Ajay Agarwal – fueling business growth through stringent controls, innovation and strengthening of the distribution channel. And now, a third generation of entrepreneurs have come into the fold aiming to expand business boundaries even more. Read more

Under their able leadership and focused vision, the Donear Group boasts of processes that run like clockwork, superior technology and machinery, highly competent R&D facility, and committed personnel.

The Donear Group has legacy companies/brands under their folio including Donear, GBTL (formerly Grasim Bhiwani Textiles Limited), OCM, Graviera and Mayur. Apart from the fabrics domain, we have ventured into the apparel categories also through rapid retail expansion under brands of Donear NXG and D’Cot.
