Quality fabrics that build nations

Company Profile

We are one of the latest manufacturers of specialty technical textiles with the most sophisticated equipment and processes in India. We manufacture high-quality needle-punched technical non-woven fabrics for a wide range of applications.

Since our inception in 2013, we have become one of the preferred partners for infrastructure developers, project consultants, institutional buyers, designers, and construction suppliers in India. In future, we aspire to expand to agriculture, automotive, and medical textiles that cater to European and Middle Eastern markets.

Khator Technical Textiles carries forward the legacy and manufacturing excellence of the Khator Group, a diversified business conglomerate and one of the leading global manufacturers of suiting and shirting fabrics since 1986. The Khator Group operates multiple production facilities in Maharashtra, Gujarat, and Rajasthan.

We aim to become a global leader of technical textiles with quality, innovation, trustworthiness, and technological prowess woven as intrinsic brand values.

The Facility

Our fully automated manufacturing plant, at Silvassa in Western India, is one of the most technologically advanced in India. Our investment towards building a future-ready facility ensures that we manufacture high quality fabrics that conform to global quality standards and are in line with the customer's requirements and specifications.

We manufacture non-woven geotextiles using the 'dry-laid needle-punch' technology with thermal treatments like IR bonding, hot air bonding, and calendaring to meet specific requirements.

We have the capacity to manufacture fabrics of 6 meter width; ranging from 90 gsm to 1000 gsm - the widest range for any manufacturer in India.

Functional Properties

Functional Properties - Khator Technical Textile

We take pride in manufacturing fabrics that build the infrastructure of nations and make them stronger and long-lasting. The following functional properties of KTTL Geotextiles make them well-suited for a wide range of applications.


KTTL Geotextile is permeable to water but prevents the mixing of aggregate and soil when laid as a separator between the sub soil and aggregates. It also enhances the strength, durablity, and structural integrity of the structure.


Minute perforations in the KTTL Geotextiles are designed to facilitate water flow & restricting the minute soil particles. As a result, the water pressure is reduced and load-bearing capacity of the structure is enhanced.


KTTL Geotextile is designed to drain off excess water in soil, over the lateral plane of fabric resulting in higher CBR of soil.


KTTL Geotextiles, due to high puncture resistance, prevents pumping of aggregates into the soil. This results in a stable soil structure.


The high tensile strength of KTTL Geotextiles, combined with its property of elongation, makes it the best material to increase the load bearing capacity of weak soils. Hence most ideal to be used in road construction, slope protection etc.

Stress Reduction

Non-woven KTTL Geotextiles are designed to restrict movement of different road layers and prevent reflective cracking. These attributes together with separation, filtration, protection and reinforcement function makes KTTL Geotextiles, a preferred choice for a road construction and repair.

Geotextile Selection Criteria

Application of geotextiles are varied and yet, unique. Geofabrics need to perform different functions based on different requirements. Broadly, the selection of the right geofabric is based on the functional need of the end application. Following points are taken into consideration:
1.Identify the need and the primary function for which the geotextile is being incorporated in the design
2. Ascertaining the geotextile functions that governs this application
3. Establishing the property requirement based on site specific conditions

Geotextile, graded and selected through such a selection process, will not only serve the design intent but also set clear standards for the project implementation team.

KTTL Geotextiles - The Sustainable Choice

Climate change is phenomenon that has gone from being widely debated to globally accepted within a span of one liftime. Governments and corporates are mulling ways to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG emission), so that the impact of climate change can be lessened, if not reserved. The use of KTTL Geotextiles in civil projects can provide substainability benefits such as reduction in associated congestions, noise, air pollution and significant reduction in CO, emission.

Here are some of the most common primary functions for which geotextiles are required.  
Primary characteristic required Corresponding functional properties required from the Geotextile
Filtration Permeability, Opening Size and Porosity
Strength Burst Resistance, Puncture Resistance, Dynamic Puncture Resistance, and Elongation
Protection Puncture Resistance, Thickness, Dynamic Puncture Resistance, and Weight
Drainage / Dissipation Transmissivity


Khator's technical textile non-wovens, with their versatile properties, are the perfect choice for a wide range of applications in the building and infrastructure industry.
