The current record is held by India's Plastindia Foundation who sewed the largest T-shirt measuring 96.86m long and 69.77m wide

Bangladesh is set to sew the world's largest T-shirt to break the Guinness record, marking the centenary founding anniversary of the International Labour Organization (ILO).

Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Association (BGMEA) has been assigned to sew the T-shirt using cotton fabric, thereby branding Bangladesh's apparel industry, which is the world's second largest exporter.

BGMEA President Rubana Huq on Saturday said they started the process upon getting proposal from the ILO.

Bangladesh is going to break the record previously set by the Plastindia Foundation at Mumbai, India, which on January 5, 2018 sewed the largest T-shirt measuring 96.86m (317.78ft) long and 69.77m (228.90ft) wide, hitting Guinness record, she said.
