Turkish firm says domestic textiles stand for quality
Apr '13
The textiles and apparels made in Turkey have become mark of excellence and quality in the global market and exports have been steadily growing in recent years.

In 2012, Turkey exported apparels worth US$ 15.77 billion as compared to US$ 15.64 billion in 2011. Similarly, Turkish textile exports rose to US$ 7.75 billion in 2012 from US$ 7.7 billion in 2011, according to statistics of the Ministry of Economy.

Speaking to fibre2fashion, Ms. Yesim Gulsel, managing director of Jasmin Agency Istanbul – a premier textile company, said, “We work for the best fashion houses in the world and the luxury manufacturing increases every year. ‘Made in Turkey’ can be understood as the best products presented at the best shops around the world and people are comfortable buying T-shirt worth €300 that has been produced in Turkey.”

“We care about every small detail while receiving the orders from our clients,” she adds.

According to her, excellence, quality and good eye for detailing coupled with skilled workmanship, modern machinery and lower prices than Portugal or Romania makes Turkish clothing and textile unique.

However, Turkey is heavily dependent on textile raw material imports and it is currently the second largest importer of cotton, next to China, according to the statistics of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Bursa, Istanbul and Denizli are major textile and apparel production centres in Turkey.

Russia, Germany, Britain, Italy, Morocco, Romania, Poland, Spain and the US  are the major importers of Turkish textiles and garments.
