The history of the Turkish textile sector dates back to 1,500 years ago, with the silk road.

Our story begins in 1932 as a very high end home textile producer, and since then thousands of people have worked around the company's looms, weaving their different ideas and projects. Today one can sum up this rich narrative in two concepts: innovation and creativity. Vanelli produces home textiles and accessories, for both commercial and residential interiors.

As a 4th generation family owned textile company, our story started in Bursa, the vision city of the Republic of Turkey and the Anatolian civilizations whose roots date back to thousands of years ago. An important strategic decision taken in the 1989 when the family stopped and Mr. Turkun started his own business separately from the family then paved the way for the ennoblement of the textile range.

Türkün managed to seize a line of success and opened up his first factory at 1983 in Bursa Organized Industrial Area, and founded “Vanelli Foreign Trade Company” in 1989 that has a great role on becoming a world brand.
