The International Textile Alliance (ITA)
The International Textile Alliance (ITA) is the go-to resource for textile professionals around the world. We offer leadership, networking and educational opportunities designed to support individual businesses and advance our industry.
Founded in 1990, ITA (formerly called ITMA) is a non-profit business association dedicated to promoting its members and supporting industry development. Members pay an annual fee that funds the association’s industry events and education programs. A primary membership benefit is that only ITA members are permitted to exhibit at the bi-annual Showtime Market.
The association is comprised of mills, converters, distributors, agents, tanneries, and trimming manufacturers that produce decorative coverings for the home furnishings and related industries. Industry suppliers are also accepted under a supplier membership.
A key part of ITA’s mission is the growth and development of future industry leaders. Our member companies recognize the need to attract fresh talent and promote the growth and development of students studying textiles around the world.
From internships to mixers, our initiatives create opportunities for the long-term advancement of the industry through education and recruitment.
We rely on the support and financial generosity of our members and industry leaders to fund these efforts.
