A Specialist Since Day One

Chori has a long history as a textile specialist, dating all the way back to the company’s establishment in 1861. Thanks to our unique trading and manufacturing capabilities, underpinned by a high level of expertise, we have a hand in every stage of the textiles process, from start to finish. We make the most of these strengths to provide customer-oriented added value at all times, and to expand our global operations in our own unique way. We are also actively involved in the development of original products and environmentally friendly materials.
