ZODIAC Brand Logo

Zodiac Clothing Co. Ltd. (also known as ZODIAC), is an international clothing fashion company that manufactures and retails men’s apparel in India. [1] It is a listed public company, traded on the Bombay Stock Exchange [1], with its registered office in Mumbai, India.[1]


Inception: 1954[edit]

ZODIAC’s necktie business came into existence in 1954 when the Company’s founder Mr M. Y. Noorani’s initial fabric trading business attempt hit a roadblock. With fabric imports at his disposal and a major order cancellation, he thought of converting the fabrics to neckties.[2] The idea of converting the fabrics to neckties was well received by the stores across India. Eventually, ZODIAC developed into a brand for neckties in India and soon began exporting the same to European markets.[2] Even today in India, ZODIAC is synonymous with Ties. The brand was propelled by fabric quality, design & an advertising campaign known as the Zodiac Man Campaign.[3]
