ISTANBUL — As Turkish manufacturers prepared for the upcoming Turkish Fashion Fabric Exhibition in New York this month, they said they were remaining focused on a niche of offering fabrics that can rival European mills in quality, yet carry price tags closer to what one would expect out of the Far East.
Over the past few decades, Turkey’s fabric and apparel exporters targeted primarily the nearby European market. But in more recent years, the enormous size of the U.S. has made it an increasingly attractive outlet to Turkish manufacturers who said they are seeking to boost their sales to the U.S.
