About us

Sharabati Denim was founded in Syria, the birthplace of the textile industry, in 1978. Now based in Egypt and Turkey, we were among the first companies in the Middle East to produce denim. Over the years, Sharabati Denim has grown rapidly to become a fully integrated textile manufacturer covering the complete production cycle, right from the cotton bale.

What we do

We oversee the entire process of denim and flat fabric production, from sourcing high quality raw materials to producing yarn, finished denim and flat fabrics. We are a family-owned business, and promote a supportive, inclusive working environment, prioritising our 3,000 employees’ health and safety.

 

Sharabati Denim has successfully expanded over the years, doubling our production nearly every seven years. We are known for market-leading innovation, establishing the first denim line in Syria and the first gabardine line in Egypt.

 

Today, we are strategically located in both the south and north of the Mediterranean, operating factories in Sadat City, Egypt, and Kadirli, Turkey. This means we are uniquely placed to serve local and international textiles and apparel markets. Today, from our Egypt headquarters and our JNR sister company, we produce 80 million running metres of fabric annually.

 

With sales offices in Germany, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, Tunisia and Morocco, we export our products to top fashion brands in 27 countries. In particular, we serve customers in Europe (Germany, Italy, Turkey, Poland, Portugal, Romania), North Africa (Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco) and the Far East (Bangladesh, Vietnam, India).
