ISTANBUL—Turkish fabric producers are alive and well buoyed by a large domestic market of 80 million people and a booming export market strengthened by a greatly devalued Turkish lira.

Companies like Kucukcalik, Aydin, Weavers, and Berteks expand production and sales to serve the USA and Euro markets.
Kucukcalik Is boosting technical fabric production for the roller shade industry by 30 percent.

Aydin has added transfer printed rugs to its mix in what owner Ali Aydin sees as a totally new $10 million business. Retailers are eating up his rug production and coordinating his rugs with fabrics, bedding, and table linen.

Weavers by Boyteks—like Aydin revamped its entire showroom just before the pandemic but is reaping the benefits of thinking ahead as markets turnaround.

Even Turkish wholesalers have been progressing. Sall, led by Tenay Aydin (not related to Mr. Ali) is boosting contract Fabrics sales by the extensive use of embroidery. Sall opened a showroom in Katar to serve multiple homeowners in that booming market.

Recently, a major American fabric jobber returned from Turkey with only good things to say about it “Aside from having the best cuisine in Europe, the decorative fabric offering is superior to what you can buy anywhere else for a very reasonable price.”
