Turkey

Turkey’s location at the crossroads of Europe and Asia gives it significant geostrategic importance.

The local textile industry has developed a vertical infrastructure aimed at the upper niche of the market, with a knowledgeable, skillful and well-educated labor force.

Turkey is a preferred production country for our industry, thanks to its flexible service understandings, short lead times, availability of all types of raw materials, and logistical advantages.

The quality of cotton produced in Turkey is one of the best in the world, second only to American/Virginian cottons.

Turkey’s textile business began in the early 1980’s and grew rapidly reaching 18.000 manufacturer/exporters and 50.000 related sub-contractors and manufacturers in the following 2 decades, making Turkey the second biggest country exporting to Europe.

In 2006, far-east competition forced Turkey to decrease the number of its manufacturers. This allowed Turkey to decrease price level and production time while increasing product quality and production innovation.

Some of the world’s most well known brands are producing in Turkey including Prada, Boss, Armani, Iceberg, Gaultier, Lagerfeld, Filippa K, Diesel, Replay, Abercrombie&Fitch, Zara, H&M, M&S, Gant, Dolce Gabbana, Max Mara, Nautica, Murphy&Nye, Björn Borg, Comfyballs, Calvin Klein, Tommy Hillfiger, River Island, Moschino…
