Not to be missed!
As Christmas approaches, with all its festive excitement, twinkling lights and special atmosphere, one tradition lives on: exchanging gifts.
Today, we’d like to tell you a little more about an event that is particularly close to our hearts: the A+A 2023 trade fair, which will take place in Düsseldorf, Germany, from 24 to 27 October 2023.
We simply can’t miss this must-attend event in the world of professional textiles, where health and safety in the workplace take centre stage!
Let’s take a closer look at a piece of clothing that has been a staple of the workwear and fashion worlds for some years now: the bodywarmer.
This sleeveless jacket offers optimum freedom of movement, while its lightweight construction keeps the body warm without sacrificing comfort.
We like it to be technical, comfortable and durable as well as unifying and stylish: why not find out a little more about customisable sportswear?
The TopTex group has been in business for over 25 years, starting out near Toulouse in France and expanding rapidly across Europe as the years have passed. We now have five branches!
What has driven us from the start? A unique corporate culture and solid values: team spirit, respect, trust and commitment, to name but a few.
On the programme today? APIs (Application Programming Interfaces). Behind this acronym lies an IT solution that makes our customers’ day-to-day lives easier.
An API enables our customers to retrieve (automatically) the information they need about our products: prices, restocking dates, delivery times, stock updates, visuals and product characteristics, etc
Today’s retailers are faced with a major challenge: logistics. Consumer demands, increased competition, a sometimes unpredictable environment and the need to be proactive: professionals, particularly in the textile industry, face challenges every day.
We know that to meet the demands of increasingly volatile customers, certain points are essential.
Product variety and availability, on-time delivery, quality of follow-up and after-sales service, restocking… at TopTex, we’re aware that these points are decisive for you and for your end customers.
Being committed to a more responsible and sustainable world is one of our priorities at TopTex, as well as at KARIBAN BRANDS.
In this context, CSR is at the heart of our concerns. So, as soon as possible, we optimise our production and distribution processes (with the K-Loop project, for example), ensure that our products are manufactured in accordance with the rights of workers (particularly in Kariwala), and use sustainable materials (such as in-conversion cotton).
Today, we want to tell you more about what we do to promote local distribution channels. More and more, we’re trying to produce in Europe and to offer you partner brands that are just as involved in the future of textiles.
Founded in France, the TopTex group now distributes more than 40 brands and nearly 3,000 personalised accessories and textile items across 14 European countries. Since then, branches have been established in Spain, Italy, Belgium, but also in Portugal more than ten years ago.
This strategic choice allows us to distribute our clothes and accessories to professionals, while remaining in touch with local customers.
The Hospitality, Service and Food & Drink trades account for a great many professionals. Bakers, fishmongers, wine merchants and greengrocers, as well as waiting staff, chefs and hotel managers, the list is long!
What do they have in common? An intense pace, staggered schedules and versatile tasks. To carry out their jobs, they need comfortable, flexible and resistant outfits, suitable for their hectic everyday lives.
