Group History


Redefining the profile to Manufacturer

Kiara Garments Vietnam Ltd is established, the group’s first own manufacturing facility in Nam Dinh Province, Vietnam.

Stepping Offshore

With rising costs of production in China, we setup our first office outside the Greater China region – in Hanoi, Vietnam to tap into what was then a quickly developing industry in the country. This is when we started managing our cut/sew operations offshore for the first time as well.

Movement to Add Value

The group makes a shift in focus from fabric to apparel and embark on a journey that has powered us ahead and determined who we are today.

Right at the Source

Three years after our direct entry to China, we established a precense in China’s undisputed textile region in Shaoxing, Zhejiang Province with a branch office focus on sourcing/quality control.

Mainland Milestone

Our first direct presence on Mainland China, in which we established an office in Shanghai further deepening our sourcing/product capabilities.

Focus on Textiles

The group takes a concious decision to focus exclusively on textiles – and to make this the core business.

Stride to Taiwan

Established a branch office in Taipei, Taiwan to expand sourcing/product capabilities that the island boasted at the time.

The Beginnings

Established a trading company in Hong Kong, with a focus on being a trading bridge between China and the Pacific Islands (family heritage is traced back to the Fiji Islands).

Executive board

Navin Chunilal


"Boss" or "Lao Ban" as he is widely referred to in the company, Navin is a pioneer in sourcing fabrics from China - an experience he has gained since the late 1970s. Being the 2nd generation of the Chunilal family, he was born in the Fiji Islands - and spent some of his early years in Hong Kong and UK. He joined the company at a very early age, at which point the area of focus wasn't entirely textiles as it is today - and we can proudly say that his journey into textiles has spearheaded us into the direction where we are today. The knowledge he brings to the business is tremendous and priceless. Well respected by both customers and suppliers, he is known to be a humble speaker and a very simple approach to doing business. He is still very much involved in the fabric sourcing/trading part of the business.

Chandrika Chunilal (Deceased)

Chief Financial Officer

Chandrika aka Mrs Navin hailed from humble backgrounds in India. After having married Navin, Chandrika joined a traditional Indian family that ran the business exclusively by the male counterparts in the family. In the mid 1990s she was determined to change this and succesfully broke into the family business as its first female family member, and till date is well respsected for what she brought to the table. She had also been awarded International Women's Enterprenial Challange (IWEC) Foundation's 2019 award. As CFO she was responsible for all financial functions of the entire group - and was also involved in countless other areas of the business where she imparted her leadership and guidance to steer us in the right direction. With her sad and sudden demise on March 10, 2022, we believe that she continues watching over us, she will never be forgotten.

Prior to this she was the head of sourcing at a well-known Brazilian (she also is from Brazil) retailer which enables us to also harness the perspective of our customers. Switching over to the other side of the table has also allowed her to have accumlated deeper understanding of the entire supply chain.
