It is planned to open a workshop for the production of padding polyester at the cotton spinning factory of Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, Trend reports referring to the Neytralni Turkmenistan newspaper.
The technological line will be installed by Turkey’s Norsel International Insaat Dis Ticaret Sanayi Limited. The thermal method deemed the most effective, will be used for the production of padding polyester.

The padding polyester is used as a means of heating for outerwear, a filler for blankets, and other commonly used textile products.
Turkmenistan grows more than one million tons of cotton annually, which is a highly demanded raw material for the country’s rapidly developing textile industry. Until recently, up to 70 percent of the cultivated raw materials were processed domestically.
The Turkmen textile industry is represented by a wide range of exports - from cotton fiber and yarn to finished garments and knitwear, produced by the largest complexes in Central Asia which are located in the capital and in all regions of the country.
A significant part of the products exported from Turkmenistan consist of home textiles, sportswear and jeans, released under world famous brands such as IKEA, Puma, Wal-Mart, Lidl, Bershka, Pull & Bear, River Island, and Costco.
