Swiss Textiles offers its members a range of attractive sector-specific services and helps them overcome everyday challenges effectively, efficiently and in a targeted manner. We regard ourselves as a service provider and mouthpiece for our members, and we pursue a policy of active and open communication. We offer our support in strategic, conceptual and operational issues. We periodically inform our members about impending and ongoing changes in legislation and jurisprudence at both the national and the international level.

We are committed to supporting our members through targeted, personal lobbying and thus to constantly improving the political framework conditions, particularly in the areas of trade policy, employment and social policy, environment, energy and education. We stand by the fundamental principles of a liberal state structure and economic system: market economy, competition, free trade, social partnership and sustainability.

Pascal Weber, Head of Production and Sales, Tisca Tischhauser AG

Swiss Textiles keeps a close eye on economic policy developments and periodically explains what they mean for our business activity. We were especially grateful for this support during the lengthy Brexit process.

Markus Freitag, proprietor of Freitag lab.ag

Kontext Annual presents a good thematic mix that extends well beyond the textiles industry. If it is always the same people who are brought together, you cannot expect much in the way of change. It is often unplanned encounters that lead to something new.”
