Who We Are

Finnish Textile & Fashion is an organization with over 200 member companies in the textiles and apparel industry. We promote and support the growth of the Finnish textile and fashion companies in this globally changing industry.

Finnish Textile & Fashion is an employers’ association. We represent the member companies’ interests as an industry influencer – we take part in relevant decision-making and discussions concerning the business environment, and provide the member companies platforms for co-operation and advocacy.

Our aim is to provide the companies with good opportunities to grow, internationalize and succeed.

Finnish Textile & Fashion represents the Finnish textile, fashion and apparel industry employers when negotiating collective agreements, which are binding to both our member companies and the non-affiliated employers. We are a member association of the Confederation of Finnish Industries (EK).

We actively network across Europe and build bridges with international organizations, companies, and service providers as well as international investors and accelerators looking for business contacts in our industry.

Finnish Textile & Fashion participates in several international cooperation bodies. We are a member of EURATEX (The European Apparel and Textile Confederation), ETP (The European Technology Platform for the Future of Textiles and Clothing), and NFA (The Nordic Fashion Association). We also actively cooperate with various textile and fashion industry organisations internationally, and build our network continuously – don’t hesitate to contact us!
