Open a textile business in Thailand

Thailand has an extensive range of textile manufacturers and investors who open a business for selling textiles can source their products from preferred local producers. 
Below is a short list of ideas for starting a business that sells various types of textiles:
  • Designer items: Bangkok is a modern city where brands from around the world exhibit their unique and even luxurious designs. Investors can explore this niche when opening a clothing business.
  • Jeans: Thailand has a developed jeans selling industry and produces its own jeans, in addition to the successful brands that are imported and sold in the country.
  • Sportswear: opening a business that sells sportswear can be a lucrative business idea, especially as many expats living in Bangkok already have an active lifestyle.
  • Home textiles: while in the non-apparel category, this can be an interesting niche in the selling of textiles as Thailand produces many home textiles.
