Sourcing Trip to Kahramanmaras, Turkey
A delegation of ten textile companies from Germany travelled to Kahramanmaras, a textile hotspot in the southeast of Turkey from April 26th to 30th to discover the textile sector in the region that is highly focused on yarn, fabric and garment production.
Kindly invited by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Kahramanmaras (KMTSO), Sourcebook organized a sourcing trip bringing fashion brands, corporate fashion companies, fabric wholesalers, production agencies and fabric fairs e.g. Lillika Eden, Sveekery, 4Hunks, Modeinstitut Berlin, Der Rote Faden and Munich Fabric Start.
After a day of presentations and B2B meetings at the KMTSO headquarters we had a wonderful dinner with our hosts and the participating companies from Maras. We were also treated to talks about the history of the regional textile sector while enjoying the famous goat milk ice cream from the nearby mountains.
