about us

Taking Indian made apparel to the world for 40 years.

Gokaldas Images was founded in 1979. We are one of India’s most diverse apparel manufacturing companies, operating under three business clusters - Innerwear, Defence and Suits.

Our continued commitment to innovation and R&D has made us a pioneer in the apparel industry. We were the first Indian company to create market-leading, homegrown brands such as Weekender and Enamor that rivalled global brands on design and quality.

Partnerships & Collaborations


GI began its Suits journey with a Joint Venture with Weil Besancon – a leading manufacturer of formal wear in France since 1868 and became the first Suit Exporter from the country. We also had a  decades long, versatile collaboration & manufacturing agreement with Oxford Industries (USA) being their major partner in Southern Asia.


a 100% buyback arrangement and manufacturing agreement with Playtex (Northern Europe) a division of Sara Lee Corporation for lingerie. This made us the first exporter of women’s bras, corsetry and inner wear  from the country, fulfilling the needs of brands like Playtex, Wonderbra &  Cacherel.


a manufacturing agreement with Levi Strauss & Co. for the production of denim wear, making us the first maker & laundry for the brand allowing it to become dominant in India without its own manufacturing facilities.
