We focused on the Balkan countries, Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, Albania, where we sell directly in these countries. In addition to this we have indirect channel for exports to about 15 countries. Half of our production is sold in domestic market; the other half is sold to buyers abroad. We aimed to step up in the North African markets, though it is highly difficult and far away from Turkey.
On mattress fabrics sold in Turkey and general observations in the industry.
We do our job by feeling joy in our business. We saw several companies that entered in the market and left it immediately, by decaying both the prices and product qualities. It affects our balances. We have complains about grew economy companies who operates below the stairs.
Fabrics for mattresses should be made of 100% of cotton. Those windmill type of companies are sold their products on prices. We deal with only serious companies who would not be deceived by low prices only. We are the supplier of about four larger companies. We have deals with high quality and selected companies only.
