Only 15 to 20 years ago, the Turkish home textile manufacturers used to produce contract manufacturing mainly from Europe; now they are setting world trends. The sector, which is one of the four most prominent players in the world home textiles industry, creates its collections by its own designers. The Turkish home textiles sector is part of the global competition with many of its leading brands having stores abroad.
EVTEKS – Istanbul International Home Textiles Exhibition plays a significant role in the growth of the home textiles industry and the increase in export rates. The exhibition which is one of the world’s two biggest trade fairs in its field contributes to the industry’s export rates by one hundred percent every year. Continuing consecutively for a quarter century, EVTEKS will celebrate its 25th anniversary on April 23.
