Tayal Sons Limited (TSL) has roots dating back to 1890 when Lala Chandu Lal Tayal and Lala Hari Lal Tayal set up seven cotton ginning factories across northern India under the flagship enterprise – Chandu Lal and Company. This enterprise led the way in the growth of cotton commerce in twentieth century colonial India and lived through the economic and political transformations of post-independence India. Even today, our headquarters operate out of the same site as that of the original ginning factories. TSL came into being in 1972, when it started trading cotton locally across the state of Haryana.

Cotton handled by us is woven into fabrics worn by people and used in households across the globe.

A GLOBAL PROSPECTIVE
From t-shirts and blue jeans to towels and bedding, cotton surrounds us in every aspect of our lives. For years, clothing and home décor made of cotton have enhanced our quality of life by providing comfort and expression. Behind cotton’s global reach is an industry that provides income for more than 3.5% of the world’s population and employs almost 7% of all labor in developing countries. As the world's largest producer of cotton and second largest manufacturer of textiles, India is at the heart of how the cotton t-shirt you’re wearing gets manufactured. TSL, as one of India’s leading cotton trading houses, plays an integral part in this value-chain by supplying our clients the best quality cotton at the right price and right time.
