As a LEED Platinum certified green textile maker we strictly maintain our environment and save our own resources, said Mahbub Khan Himel, Director, Mithela Group.

In today’s world, everyone is worried about sustainable production. For example, in China, there is a red category factor that pollutes the environment and the government is closing it down. Since we have a green factory, buyers are giving us a priority in order, added Mr. Mahbub.
