75% of our country's total towel exports, 65% of total bathrobe exports, and 55% of total duvet covers are exported from Denizli in terms of sub group analysis. In these three product groups, we export approximately 1 billion dollars annually. This data serves as an important indicator of Denizli's strength, deep-rooted history, and export potential in the home textile sector.
