This is what our customers say:
"In 1987 I was working as a graduate-trainee in the buying teams at Marks & Spencer in London. I was asked to prepare a paper on the textile and clothing industry in Italy. In my search for information I discovered Textile Outlook International. The quality of information that this publication provided was nothing short of excellent. As I look back over the past 25 years, there have been several times that I've turned to the publications of Textiles Intelligence. They have always been of the highest quality and provided me with the opportunity to talk with confidence about the global textile & clothing industries. Today, I'm the Chief Supply Office for Umbro, a wholly owned subsidiary of Nike Inc. As I look back, of course there are many factors that have helped me to get to where I am today. I've no doubt that the information provided by Textiles Intelligence has been a contributory factor."
