Ipeker, an innovative

home textile


Ipeker: “We

have documented

that there are

no animal

ingredients or

proteins in the

146 different

types of fabric

we produce. In

our production

process, we

provide continuity

without harming

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).

September 2018


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

opportunity in



markets. Our

products are






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.

September 2018


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.

18 HTE

Numbers speak

louder than


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.

We talked to Orhan Yildizcan, Chairman of Toplu Textile,

about the textile industry.

Would you brief about your firm?

Our factory is based on an area of 1750 sqm and exports

its products that are sold to exporters who export them to

several countries in Europe and in America. With both our

machinery park and our technical staff we meet the needs

of our customers without any complaints and ready to help

them in their R&D efforts. As a customer oriented company

our aim is to meet all demand for special products and deliver

them as scheduled.

Our firm was established in 1978 and started to produce

narrow band in 1997. By the year 2005, our firm

had been producing different types of narrow band and

became more powerful when a partnership had been

established in 2006 to produce band for draperies.

What kinds of products do you have in your

product line and how large is your capacity?

Among our products and services are other accessories

used in home textiles production including curtain shim

accessories, curtain tarlatans, rollers and narrow textiles.

We can produce narrow bands from 1 mm. to 210

mm wide. For curtains we have more than 600 varieties

of products. Total monthly production capacity of our

firm is about 12 million meters.

tects, interior designers, and hotels mainly from the Middle

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

decline too

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

Mr. Nuri Öztaşkın

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

September 2018


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.

September 2018




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


September 2018




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


September 2018




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.

Major Export Markets in Fabrics (USD 1,000)

Today, Turkish fabric manufacturers are aware of the increasing

trend in international markets for healthier and

themselves to these developments. Many Turkish fabric

manufacturers have ecological labels for their products.

Many of them have best known eco-labels like Oeko-Tex

Furniture and





expands its


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

hall levels.

September 2018





September 2018


‘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

strongly represented

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.

September 2018

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

from Asia

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.

September 2018


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

Italy (hall 4.2).

The new trade fair concept from 2019 onwards includes

a new hall structure with the addition of the new Hall 12

and without Hall 6, which is currently undergoing renovation.

The functional spectrum of bedding from Hall 8.0 is

moving to Hall 11.0. There, under the title ‘Smart Bedding’,

you will find innovative products from the bedding, duvets,

mattresses, pillows, bedding systems and textile-machinery

product segments, as well as the new forum on ‘The Future

of Sleep’. After nutrition and fitness, sleep is set to be the

next key lifestyle subject. And this is the starting point for

Heimtextil, which presents the restructured product segment

as a potent, future-oriented theme.

Top themes:

* Smart bedding

* The future of sleep

September 2018


Smart bedding

Within the framework of the new concept, Heimtextil has

taken up ‘sleep’ as a major lifestyle and well-being theme.

Under the title ‘Smart Bedding’, there will be a center of expertise

for sleep – aimed especially at specialist bed retailers,

who will benefit from shorter walking distances – thus

maintaining the link to the bed-linen product segment in

Hall 12.

‘The layout planned by Messe Frankfurt is logical and easily

implemented. And this is how our customers’ buyers see

it, too”, says Stefan Sickenberger, Sales Manager of f.a.n.

Frankenstolz. ‘We are confident of a yet another good response

from our visitors in 2019 – albeit in Hall 11.0 – and

are already looking forward to the fair.”

The future of sleep

‘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

out more about this fascinating subject and hold discussions

with experts. Under the heading ‘The Future of Sleep’,

there will be four thematic blocks: ‘Smart & Sustainability’,

‘Smart & Hospitality’, ‘Smart & Sport’ and ‘Smart & Digital’.

In other words, you can look forward to numerous informative

expert lectures and discussions with time for an interactive

exchange of ideas and information.

Heimtextil is the biggest international trade fair for home

and contract textiles, and will next be held in Frankfurt am

Main from 8 to 11 January 2019. The first trade fair of the

year for its sector, it is a climate and trend barometer for the

new business year.
