In 1959, its name was changed to “Association of Man-Made Fibre Industry of India” to include all the modern Man-Made Fibres of 20th Century origin thereby expanding its scope and membership. Thus, the Membership of the AMFII varied from time to time and included both Synthetic and Cellulosic Man-Made Fibres and Filament Yarn Manufacturers.
On 29th April 1987, the AMFII was registered as a Private Limited Company under section 25 A of the Companies Act 1956. It was also registered under section 12 of the Income Tax Act as an organization for charitable purpose for “advancement of an object of general public utility”.

As part of Industrial Revolution, Cellulose was the result of man’s endeavor to invent a cheaper substitute for expensive Silk Fiber. Cellulose was invented in 1884 in France. It was first manufactured for commercial uses in 1910 by Avtex Fibers Inc. in the United States. Initially it was marketed as “Artificial Silk”. However, the manufacturers didn’t find the word “artificial” very appealing from the marketing point of view. Hence, the name “Rayon” was adopted.
VFY is a natural fibre which can be made to resemble silk, cotton and wool in its feel and texture. Known for its versatility, VFY has superior drape, fluidity and lustre which makes it a popular choice for manufacturing fabrics such as georgettes, crepes and chiffons. Manufactured under the brand name Raysil (formerly known as Rayon), VFY comes in a wide range of 600 shades with the flexibility of reproducing any shade to suit customer needs.
VSF is a regenerated cellulose fibre made from wood pulp, a sustainable natural resource and is bio-degradable and eco-friendly.
