Egyptian textile companies eyeing Brazilian market
Jan '17
Several textile manufacturing companies from Egypt are looking to export to Brazil, according to the Egypt’s trade office in São Paulo. The companies searching for Brazilian buyers include Spinalex, Misr Amreya, Elbanna, Sammakia Embrator, Hesni, Sogic, KCG Textile, etc. Among Arab nations, Egypt is currently the top textile exporter to Brazil.
Alexandria based Spinalex is searching for a local representative to export 100% Egyptian cotton to Brazil. The company had done business in the South American country in the past, and it now wants to resume trade, according to a Brazil-Arab news agency report. Spinalex currently exports cotton to the US, Canada and other Arab countries.
Misr Amreya, also based in Alexandria, exports 100% Egyptian cotton yarn, fabrics, tablecloths and napkins to countries in the Middle East, Africa, Europe and the US. It is now looking for buyers in Brazil, the report said.
Innerwear producer Sammakia Embrator, which operates more than 1,000 stores in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia, is also planning to extend its operations to Brazil. With a portfolio of over 40 items, the company’s main markets are the UAE, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Libya, Morocco and South Korea.
Sewing threads producer Elbanna, cotton yarn manufacturers Sky Tex and Shamtex, fabric producer Hesni, home textiles firm KCG Textile, and textiles and clothing manufacturer Sogic have also approached the Egyptian trade office looking for buyers in Brazil. 
Last year, Brazilian textile imports from Egypt stood at $9.4 million, according to the data from the Brazilian ministry of industry, trade and services. (RKS)
