Turkey’s textile industry is a global reamer in the world. The top 5 export countries in the textile and apparel industry were Germany, Italy, USA, England and France.
Towels constitute an important (approx. %35) part of home textile exports. The target markets for which promotion and marketing activities are carried out under the brand “Turkish Towels” supported within the scope of the Turquality Project were the UK and the USA. For example; The United States is the world doing bathrobe imports to 40% is provided for Turkey and its surrounding area of 70% of the conducts from Denizli.
Turkish towels made in the legendary cotton-producing town of Denizli, which is famous for its fine premium, long-staple cotton. Using longer fiber cotton in spinning yarn means fewer joins. Fewer joins results in stronger and smoother cotton threads. That’s why cotton from this region is considered to be the softest in the world. And, the Turkish cotton gets softer, fluffier, and more absorbent with successive washings.
Quality control of towels requires considerable hands-on expertise and a keen focus on detail differently than the other textile styles. We use the industry-standard methods, along with input on your main concerns and specific requirements for each product, to build a comprehensive inspection checklist.
We perform on-site tests and assess compliance with your product’s specification and approval sample. Pre-shipment towel inspection can help importers check for compliance with important product specifications like:
- Color Quality Control
- GSM and weight
- Color Fastness
- Thread count
- Odor test
- OEKO-TEX (harmful chemicals or substances)
- ASTM D4772 – 14 (surface water absorption)
