Guide to participation in the <Textile Business Negotiation Salon>

The Japanese apparel market is one of the largest and most attractive of its kind. Apparel manufacturing, based on highly refined sense and quality, would not have been easy without Japanese fabrics created with high quality and added value over a long history. For domestic production, however, the hollowing-out phenomenon continues, and Japan is dependent on imports for most of its supplies, facing the severe reality of an accelerating decline in domestic textile producing regions. This limits material procurement in the domestic market, hence boosting demand for business opportunities with leading overseas textile makers.


The Premium Textile Japan (PTJ) was launched, targeting efforts to provide a business matching platform where top domestic and overseas buyers and suppliers converge, and now celebrates its10th anniversary. The fair is widely acclaimed by buyers as an active, animated event, which has firmly established its presence. Most visitors comprise apparel designers and MDs who are decision-makers for fabric procurement, making the fair a real business-oriented negotiation salon. A productive and in-depth business related programme coordinated by the organiser, such as business matching, also adds to the appeal of this key event.

It is the only premium textile salon which provides authentic brands and products; striving to invite textile buyers of high-end brands, not only from domestic markets but also those from overseas, such as Asia centring on China.


The 10th edition of PTJ will be held alongside the biggest total textile fair in Japan, < JFW Japan
Creation 2016>, which received a total of around 20,000 visitors last year, including numerous key fashion industry players. We will also recruit textile manufacturers handling top-quality products.

Take this opportunity to showcase your company products and extend your business scope by participating In the PTJ fair!
