ORIGINALLY STARTING TO DEVELOP BASED ON THE CULTIVATION OF COTTON IN TURKEY

Originally starting to develop based on the cultivation of cotton in Turkey, over the years the Turkish textile sector has become an export industry. The export of Turkish yarn and fiber products has increased in recent years with investments made in the industry. Turkey is among the most important producers of cotton in the world and is also a country of authority when it comes to yarn manufacturing and processing.
