 Istanbul is the heart of Turkey in the field of textiles, as it contains the largest number of companies that manufacture and export its products.

Areas such as Beyazit and Merter are among the areas that witness the most commercial activity.

Many foreign merchants visit these areas to buy goods and transport them to their countries, and each area is distinguished. With one type of product, for example, the Beyazit region specializes in leather products and bags, and the trade movement in these areas witnesses a great demand, especially from passing merchants who visit Turkey with the aim of transporting its products to their countries.

Traders from the Balkan countries, Arab countries, and Russia are among the most eager to buy textile products from Turkey.

 Because the prices in Turkey are competitive and the quality of its products is high, merchants earn from the textile products that they bring from Turkey for sale in their countries a profit rate estimated at 30 to 40%, and the ease of this matter lies in the availability of shipping companies that send these goods to the required countries at good prices.With digital development today, social media has become one of the best ways to market products, especially clothing, as it facilitates customers’ search for specific types of clothing or specific models (especially those that appear in Turkish series).
