Sun Tekstil R&D Center, certified and supported by the Ministry of Industry and Technology of the Republic of Turkey, was established in 2010. Understanding customer needs and pain points, designing user-friendly solutions, building strong collaboration for market-oriented products, and delivering innovative B2B or B2C solutions are our core values. Our R&D Center has three main areas of activity: Fashion Technologies, Industrial Transformation, and Protective Technologies.
We follow the generational changes in the fashion industry and focus our efforts on rising trends, with a sustainable approach. We define our vision by setting our strategies, in light of the latest technological developments in the ready-to-wear industry. Sustainable design is one of our priorities, and we base our work on this core. Determining the choice of materials and digitalization as our two main processes, we invest in the future of the fashion industry. We place great emphasis on collaboration and the synergy of different disciplines, working with a wide range of partners to give life to innovative fashion technologies.
In the highly competitive fashion industry, we aim not only to survive but to thrive! In this vision, we continue our work in sustainable fashion, functional and industrial fashion design, the digitalization of fashion, wearable technologies, and online platforms in the future of the fashion industry.
We work with protective clothing, equipment, and materials in this area of activity. In order for our country to strengthen its position and increase its competitiveness in the global protective textiles sector, we continue our work in this field which has higher added value in comparison to traditional textiles production.
We research innovative new materials and production methods for protective textiles; a key area within technical textile products. Using innovative materials and technological manufacturing methods, we are able to create ground-breaking products through our R&D processes. Thanks to our technical infrastructure, we carry out tests and analyses in our own R&D Laboratory. Our knowledge and expertise, based on our production background, also help us support the development of technical textiles.
