Chairman of Aegean Ready Wear and Apparel Exporters' Union recently said that, in view of the last year's substantial development, when the market reached $6.8 billion, the organic textiles and apparel exporters are saving high hopes about the growth the market is likely to attain in future with continuing uptrend.

Industry representatives attended the Organic Fashion Fair and Sustainable Textiles Seminar organized by the Textiles Exchange in the Aegean province of Izmir.

The Chairman, while addressing the seminar said that after 2007, the organic products started gaining more significance and the industry is sure to further gain from the rising demand for organic fabrics and apparel.

He further stated that, as revealed in an EHKIB press release, the organic textiles and ready wear sector of Turkey has adequate technical infrastructure, experience, production capacity and the manpower required to fulfil the global demand.

He revealed that, in 2008, Turkey exported organic ready to wear and textiles materials worth more than $60 million to over 30 countries, with EU nations accounting for around 67 percent of the same. Germany, France, Sweden, UK and the US constituted to be the major markets for Turkey's ready to wear and textiles materials.

He even revealed that, Aegean Exporters' Union and Aegean Ready Wear Industrialists' Association joined forces for formation of a buyer's delegation, while Secretariat General of Foreign Trade prepared a road map for the same.

The project, the Chairman said, is aimed at bringing Turkish organic textiles and apparel exporters and the foreign importers on a single platform, where the former can display its potential. There are 36 exporters from Turkey and 22 importing firms from Spain, Poland, Denmark, Germany, Jordan, Belgium, Panama, the UK and the Netherlands who are taking part in the program.

Textile Exchange, a global non-profit, tax-free charity organization, with headquarters in the US, organized this seminar.
