Textiles and family values take centre stage in Turkey

Hussam Tatari is the fourth-generation head of his family’s textile business, which has been manufacturing high-quality fabrics for over a century. When the political situation forced the closure of their Aleppo factory in Syria, Hussam relocated to Turkey, where he built a successful business with over 2,000 employees and an annual turnover of €70m.

They produce garments for well-known European companies, such as Engelbert Strauss, Versace, Lonsdale, and Alpha Industries. Hussam’s company is committed to sustainability and ethical production, and they work with partners who share the same values. The company has recently moved to doing everything from spinning yarn in-house, and most of the cotton they source comes from Turkey and Greece. They ensure their partners adhere to ethical and environmental codes to improve the socio-environmental setting for the workforce. The commitment to sustainability is critical for Hussam, who wants to ensure that the production conditions meet the expectations of their staff and customers.
