types of fabric
we produce. In
nature and life.”
As one of the oldest textile companies dating back
to the end of the 1800’s, Ipeker started in silkworm
business. The first steps for further development
was taken by establishing a silk processing facility
during the republican era in 1920 and a weaving loom
in 1930. The printing facilities has been operational in
the years 1940 to 1950. All were the largest integrated
silk factory in Europe and in the Middle East in those
years. Depending on its deep-rooted past, the company
keeps innovating and now produces vegan Cupra
fabrics for the needs of home textile producers. Ipeker
has become the world’s first producer of vegan fabric.
After completing an approval process in Switzerland
and Germany, the company’s fabric was granted the
‘V-Label’ from the European Vegetarian Union (EVU).
The company’s global brand will be sold on market
with a certificate code starting with ‘TR.’
Emphasizing on human health and environment,
vegan fabrics accounts the largest share in the
production. We talked with Ihsan Ipeker, general
manager of the company about their
vegan cupra sleep sets that they will exhibit
them in SleepWell Expo.
How was your transfer into
home textile market?
We have a specific and technically
perfect fabrics that we
produce in our factory. We do
not want to limit the use of
this fabrics only in clothing
industry. After our research
that our teams
have carried out in
the market, we saw
a good window of
Ihsan Ipeker, General Manager
qualified for the needs of the market. So, we decided to
offer them to mattress manufacturers. Because, people
spend their lives most in sleep, so they need the highest
comfort. Vegan Cupra fabrics is the most natural product
produced for the need of human skin.
What products are in your sleep set?
Ipeker Home is a fabric supplier. We can also supply products
for contract-based projects. We have special pillow
covers in our sleep set. 7 to 8 hours on the average our
skin touches fabrics of pillows, that should be highly qualified.
Our product prevents drying of skin and keeps it moistened,
thus reduces the aging symptoms. It is anti-static so
prevent the fluffing of hair in the morning. With its climatic
properties, it maintains the temperature on the skin in all
weather and seasons.
What are the concepts of the products that you will
display in Sleep Well Expo?
We will be exhibiting all sleep products in every concept related with
sleep in Sleep Well Expo, besides our special vegan Cupra alezes.
We will have a separate space for kids and babies. As you know,
the skins of babies are prune to every hazards and chemicals. We
also produce special technical fabrics for the delicate needs of the
babies and the environment. We combined them with sleep sets
targeting to newborns and kids.
Would you mention about the production capacity and
the technology you utilize?
Our monthly production capacity is 1.2 million meters. A large part
of it composed of biodegradable products. Integrated production
facility starts with yarn, to dyeing, printing and finishing, covers all
stages of the process under one roof.
Do you have any message that you want to deliver to the
In line with the deep root of our company we have been focused on
one line. Vegan products that we offer are the result of our sensitivity
to the people and environment. Though we are new in home
textile business, we trust our innovative products to be successful
in this segment as well.
I had the pleasure of attending a conference and a panel addressing
to home textile business people and to the press
members titled “Latest Trends in World Markets & Exports”.
Speeches were delivered and the panel discussion took place.
The most striking parts of the idea were the highlight of playing
the game with the rules and being more active in world markets.
It was also stressed that Turkey had been performing very well
on becoming a global brand and power.
The presentation also revealed some figures of the Turkish
home textile industry and its proven success. Despite the political
bottlenecks with some countries such as the USA and Israel
and hot war going on at the south of Turkey in Syria and some
other territories, Turkey’s home textile export volume has been
USD 2.8 billion in 2016, 3 billion in 2017 and is expected to
be 3.3 billion at the end of this year. There has been furniture
exports almost at the same values as home textiles.
Ayça Sarıoğlu | Editor
Prof. Dr. Emre Alkin said in his presentation on the Turkish economy
that political rather than economic decisions had shaped
Turkey’s position, adding, “Therefore, how we are perceived
abroad comes to the forefront. No matter how we promote
ourselves, ultimately there is an existing perception of Turkey.
For this reason, we need to initiate long-term public diplomacy.
The place where this public diplomacy begins is the exhibitions
since they are the places where we spend the most time with
the buyers. In this sense, we can say that the businesspeople sit
right in the center of public diplomacy.”
The Turkish clothing and textile industry targets 60 billion
dollars by 2023 and the home textile industry has a share of 10
billion dollars in this total target volume. We will see what the
numbers have to say in the coming 4 and a half years.
“Our aim is to increase our
dominance at international markets
by maintaining our leadership”
Will you inform us about your production facility?
Toplu Textile is one of the leading producers of narrow
band textiles in Turkey.
The company aims to improve its position in the market.

East, the Arabic Gulf, Turkic Republics, Africa, and Eastern
Europe to explore recent collections of global brands.
With its modern urban living and historical architecture,
Istanbul offers the perfect atmosphere for the sole contract
textile and home fashion fair of Eurasia.
CNR Holding Chairman of the Executive Board Ali Bulut said
that with over 50 exhibitions organized each year, they had
been serving the industries, the Turkish economy, and the
exporters. Adding that 18 holding companies had brought
195 thousand international buyers in 2015, 202 thousand
in 2016, and 278 thousand in 2017, from 160 countries to
the exhibitions they organized, Bulut said, “We will continue
our success in the coming years.”
Reminding that EVTEKS Istanbul International Home Textiles
Exhibition, which they had been organizing together with
the representatives of the home textiles industry, would be
launched for the 25th time next year, Bulut said, “We initiated
our EVTEKS Exhibition on an area of 10 thousand square
meters, and today we are pushing 150 thousand square
meters hosting more than 1000 exhibitors. There is a long
waiting list for the exhibition visited by more than ten thousand
international professional buyers. Now Home&Tex
Home Textiles and Decoration Exhibition is organized as a
sister exhibition to EVTEKS. Home&Tex will write new success
Turkish Home Textiles Industrialists and Businessmen
Association (TETSİAD) President Ali Sami Aydın said that the
industry had a significant place in the world. Aydın emphasized
that many countries, mainly the USA and the Far East,
preferred the Turkish products and stated that the exhibitions
organized by CNR had a tremendous contribution to
this achievement. Declaring that as the home textiles industry
they aimed to increase last year’s export volume of
3 billion dollars to 3.3 billion dollars this year, Aydın said,
“We have achieved great success with EVTEKS Exhibition.
We will continue this success with many novelties at Home
& Tex Exhibition in September. Given the latest increase in
foreign exchange rates indicating the possibility of a shrinking
domestic market, we once again see how crucial exporting
is. Home&Tex will be a huge opportunity for increasing
Furniture sector closed
down the first half of the
year with a 5.8% reduction
According to the statement
released by TÜIK (Turkish
Statistical Institute); furniture
sector has declined by 5.8% in
the first six months of 2018.
The chairman of Turkish Furniture Manufacturers
Association (MOSDER), Mr. Nuri Öztaşkın, in a statement
that he gave to evaluate the first half of the year; said:
“When we look at the first half of 2018, we can see a decline
by about 5.8%. While there has been growth in many
of the sectors, this downsizing of the furniture sector, which
is one of the leading sectors of our economy, worries us.
Among the main reasons for this reduction are the end of
the VAT discounts and the consecutive raw material price
hikes. Together with the new management staff, we are now
in a new era in which we can respond faster. The elimination
of uncertainties means a profitable second half for the
business world. With this new system, We believe that we
will move forward more quickly and effectively in many different
areas. We also think that another VAT discount in the
agenda for this period will have a positive effect. The VAT
discount, which was implemented in 2017 and lasted for
about 8 months, provided a significant growth by increasing
the trade in the furniture sector by 40%. We think that this
decline in the furniture sector can be avoided if another VAT
discount is put on the agenda.”
Employment rates in furniture sector is on a
Öztaşkın stated that the companies started to decrease the
number of workers they employ in line with the regression
in the furniture sector; said the following: “With the VAT

Manufacturers Association (MOSDER)
reduction in the past year, the increased demand created
additional employment opportunities in the sector. By this
means, about 100 thousand new employees were hired.
Looking at the first six months of 2018, we see that the
number of employees in the furniture sector has gone down.
Firms that have been losing their turnover rates, are trying
to survive by resisting to reflect the raw material price hikes
to their customers”. Öztaşkın, who stated that it is possible
to improve the current status of the sector by setting a fixed
8% VAT rate, also underlined that they will be closely following
the related developments.

The Turkish fabric industry satisfies its customers
by meeting all their needs with the quality of its
products together with its strong service ability of
quick response and on-time delivery
Turkey has some major advantages. Textiles and clothing is a long established sector, and the
workforce is experienced and skilled. This means that it could prosper by concentrating on
producing high quality, branded design, and quit the production of items that can be produced
cheaper in Pakistan, China, and India. Production of commodity items could be outsourced
to the CIS countries, with Turkish producers focusing on final processes and in-house design. It is
generally the case that the big profits in textiles and clothing do not go countries with cheap labor and
abundant cotton, but those with direct access to designs, brands, and retailing operations in growing
Having the largest share in
Turkish industrial production,
the textile industry is one of the
first established industries in
Turkey. The fabric industry has
improved significantly in recent
years, since the Turkish clothing
and home textile industries
have had a significant role in the
world’s clothing and home textile
markets in the last two decades.
The Turkish fabric finishing sector
has a level of processing
all the capacity of grey fabric.
This sector is equivalent to the
European Union in terms of processing
capacity, modern technology,
qualified workforce, and
especially product quality.
Today, the Turkish fabric industry has competitive advantages
in international markets, particularly in terms of its
technology, extensive product range and the quality, design
and creativity of its products. In addition to its well-developed
structure, it employs a highly skilled labor force. Also,
the Turkish fabric industry has great flexibility and ability to
modernize its production, and adapt itself to new
technologies. This ability allows the industry to
reduce its reaction time to changes in consumer
demand in international markets. Thus, the
Turkish fabric industry satisfies its customers
by meeting all their needs with the quality of its
products together with its strong service ability
of quick response and on-time delivery. All these
features have enabled Turkish fabric manufacturers and exporters
to earn a good reputation in international markets.
The Turkish fabric industry, which produces almost all kinds
of fabrics for apparel, home textiles, upholstery and technical
applications, has a well-developed structure, especially
in production based on cotton, wool and man-made raw
A large amount of fabric production is based on cotton.
The fabric industry based on cotton consists of two segments.
One is composed of large scale companies which
have production facilities integrated vertically in all stages
of fabric production, from fiber processing, spinning
and weaving to dying, printing and finishing. Many of
them also have manufacturing facilities for ready-made
goods such as clothing or home textiles. The other one
is composed mainly of non-integrated companies on a
small scale. These companies cooperate with the Turkish
finishing industry, which is one of the vital sub-sectors of
the Turkish textile industry.
The sector meets its raw material needs mostly from domestic
sources. As an important world cotton grower,
Turkey ranked seventh in the world production of cotton
with around 738 thousand tons in 2015/16 term.
Although Turkey is among main cotton growers in the
world, domestic cotton does not meet the production
demand of the country. Therefore, Turkey is the fourth
largest cotton importer after Bangladesh, Vietnam and
As well as the cotton textile industry,
the Turkish man-made
textile sector is also a well- developed
industry. Having large
capacity of synthetics in the
world, Turkey has a large production
potential for synthetic
fabrics based especially on
100% polyester and polyester
blends with cotton, viscose,
nylon, polyamide, wool, linen
and/or multi-blends of them.
Being the third largest mohair
producer in the world, Turkey
also has a strong wool industry.
The majority of wool products
meet the demand of clothing
producers and exporters.

With over 400 international
manufacturers, the product
range of upholstery and
decorative fabrics as well as
upholstery and artificial leather
at Heimtextil is wider than
ever before. The world’s leading
trade fair for home and
contract textiles (8-11 January
2019) in Frankfurt am Main
is now further expanding its
spectrum across a total of six
‘The upholstery and decorative fabrics segment
has been growing very successfully
for several years now. In 2019, all the relevant
European suppliers of upholstery and
decorative fabrics, upholstery and artificial
leather will be presenting themselves across
the three levels of hall 4 for the first time’,
says Olaf Schmidt, Vice President Textiles &
Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt. The
most important manufacturers of upholstery
fabrics from Asia that also have export experience
will also be represented in halls 1 and
5. All in all, Heimtextil combines the world’s
largest and most international range in this
segment, thus creating the best order options
for buyers from the furniture and home
textile industries as well as textiles editors.
Sustainable, weatherproof and suitable
for commercial properties
Healthy living and working remains one of
the top themes in the interior textiles sector.
Furniture and decorative fabrics also make
a contribution: they are able to optimize
rooms climatically and acoustically and decisively
improve the feel-good factor. In this
respect, the on-trend fabrics are certified organic,
waterproof and/or flame-retardant. At
the same time, the textiles – despite all their
high-tech – have a very natural appearance.
This also applies to outdoor fabrics in linen,
flannel or woven looks. When it comes to
soft feel-good textiles for indoors, high quality
wool is exploited to the full. Also on the
rise are denim fabrics that sometimes give
the interior a casual touch. On the morning
of the first day of the fair (8 January 2019),
a design dialogue will take place with the
Heimtextil trend managers about the latest
design trends in upholstery and decorative
fabrics. The trend researchers will invite representatives
from the upholstery industry to
the lecture area in hall 4.2 to exchange views
on current topics.
Top European producers
In hall 4, numerous big names from
Europe will be present, such as Gruppo
Mastrotto, Manifattura Tessile Di Nole,
Martinelli Ginetto, MCA, Prosetex and
Sirio Tendaggi from Italy, Boelert &
Moens, De Poortere Frères, Symphony
Mills and Tessutica (with the Beaulieu
brand) from Belgium and Albatros,
Bernard Reyn, Pintail and Reynaldo
from the Netherlands. Other top players
come from Spain: Manuel Revert,
Santa Amalia Alta Decoracion (with
the brand SATI) and Textiles Vilber.
In addition, Dina Vanelli Tekstil and
Güleser Tekstil from Turkey will also
be present. From Germany, Gebrüder
Munzert, Konrad Hornschuch, Leder
Schreyeck, Textum and Vowalon
Beschichtungen will be represented.
High-quality products for commercial textile
In addition, hall 4.2 will also focus on a further target
group: at the “Interior. Architecture. Hospitality Expo”,
architects, interior designers and hotel furnishers will
find high-quality products for commercial textile furnishing,
such as textiles with an acoustic function or
with special abrasion-resistant properties. Crypton from
the USA and Anavil Europe from France will be exhibiting
for the first time at Heimtextil and will be presenting
fabrics specifically for contract furnishing. Another
highlight in hall 4.2 will be a large-scale presentation
by Trevira. ‘We will further expand the concept of the
Trevira CS joint stand in 2019. This means that we will
be represented at Heimtextil with a larger number of
customers and thus also the highly flame-retardant
Trevira CS collections. Trevira will also be presenting
a trend area especially for the contract market, where
visitors – in particular interior designers, designers
and furnishers – can find out about innovative textiles
and color trends’, says Dr. Isabell Lammel, Manager
Communications at Trevira. The German manufacturer
of high-tech polyester fibres and filaments will be presenting
its new products alongside its well-known partners,
such as Getzner Textil from Austria, Engelbert E.
Stieger from Switzerland, Hoftex from Germany, Johan
van den Acker from the Netherlands and Tessitura
Mario Ghioldi from Italy.
Largest range of manufacturers
In halls 1.0, 1.1 and 5.1, Asian manufacturers
experienced in exports
will present a wide range of furnishing
and upholstery fabrics on a total
of three levels. This is where foreign
traders and wholesalers focusing on
volume-oriented orders can meet
manufacturers with whom orders can
be placed in medium and high quantities
and supplied in a timely manner.
In addition, the exhibitors will also be
offering a varied range of products
manufactured especially for retailers
and bearing their own brand name. D
Decor, G.M Syntex and SVG Fashion
from India will be among those represented
in hall 5.1.
Fibers and yarns: from natural materials to high-tech
In addition to the joint presentation by Trevira in hall 4.2, numerous
manufacturers of fibers and yarns will be exhibiting at Heimtextil, spread
across various product segments. The range extends from traditional
materials and eco-certified yarns to high-tech fibers for use in highly
specialized areas. Among the 20 producers are pioneering companies
such as Dralon from Germany (hall 4.1, foyer), Lenzing from Austria (hall
11.0), Reliance from India (hall 4.0, foyer) and Torcitura Lei Tsu from

are already looking forward to the fair.”

‘After nutrition and fitness, sleep is set to be the next major
lifestyle theme”, reported the FAZ newspaper*. In our new
knowledge forum, visitors and exhibitors will be able to find
