Overview

About us

By focussed lobbying we attract the attention to the needs of the textile industry in order to preserve and enforce the interests of our member companies.  We find solutions and achieve acceptance by the respective authorities. We accomplish this task among other things with our membership and collaboration at the BDI (Federation of German Industry), at the German Textile and Fashion Confederation, in the scientific councils of textile research institutes, in trade fair councils and in DIN-committees. Our memberships to the worldwide federations International Textile Manufacturers Federation (ITMF), International Wool Textile Organisation (IWTO) and to the European organisations (e.g.: EURATEX, ETT-Club) enhance our commitment.

IVGT is Germany’s biggest textile association. We are representing the interests of approximately 170 member companies from the sectors of textile raw materials, finishing, yarns and fabrics as well as Technical Textiles. Consequently, we represent more than 60% of the German textile industry and a business volume of more than 6.6 billion EUR.

As an industrial association we contribute with our work in a significant way to maintain and strenghten the general framework for textile production. We support all professionnal, economic and political concerns of our member companies towards national, European and international institutions.
