Fabric manufacturers in Turkey provide a wide range of fabrics for the worldwide textile market. The strong clothing business in Turkey drives fabric makers to increase production and fabric types.

The Importance of Fabric Manufacturers in Turkey
The textile sector covers the process from fiber to yarn and completed fabric, whereas the ready-made apparel sector covers the process from fabric to clothes. Yarn is the industry pioneer. The middle one is the knitting sector, which is the main source of power feeding the clothing industry. Therefore, the clothing business in Turkey is dependent on fabric manufacturers in Turkey. Ready-made clothing is responsible for producing and marketing the country’s added value, fashion, and final product.
Strong Clothing Business in Turkey
Since the 1980s, the clothing business in Turkey has maintained a solid position. In the article titled “Turkish Clothing Manufacturers,” I have offered some eye-catching statistics about Turkey’s clothing production and exports. With a market share of 3.7%, Turkey is the third largest garment supplier in the EU and the sixth largest in the globe, as stated in the post. Turkey also exports 4.1% of knitted apparel, making it the world’s sixth-largest knitwear exporter.
In Turkey, there are around 74,946 enterprises in the clothing, textile, and leather sectors. Furthermore, Turkey has 39,973 garment manufacturers and suppliers, employing 677,395 people.
Under these circumstances, it is easy to assume that the country’s huge apparel sector supports hundreds of fabric manufacturers in Turkey. However, I will only evaluate the most experienced fabric makers, who may be able to deliver the most competitive price bids.
Knitting Industrialists Association (ORSAD)
In order to make a high-quality listing of fabric manufacturers in Turkey, I first attempted to find a relevant civil society organization that registers fabric manufacturers in Turkey. The closest to my search intent was the Knitting Industrialists Association, which represented the fabric manufacturers in Turkey. I then performed a general search on Google.com.tr.
I recognized that ORSAD does not list all of the fabric manufacturers in Turkey. For instance, YUNSA is the largest integrated upper-segment woolen woven fabric manufacturer in Europe, but ORSAD did not list the company. In addition, the association does not have an “About Us” page or an English version of the website. However, it lists around 300 small-scale fabric or thread manufacturers that you may find helpful if you are looking for small-scale production.
You can also see the knitting machines that the registered manufacturers use. Please note that we can directly contact the association as well as member companies for your fabric needs.
The Top Fabric Manufacturers in Turkey
As stated above, it is not easy to list all the fabric manufacturers in Turkey. Therefore, I will present a list of 10 fabric manufacturers with accompanying fabric information. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any uncommon fabric requirements.
