I am really pleased to report that our new online directory Technical Textiles Finder has got off to a great start with hundreds of companies listing in the first few months and the site getting really good use by buyers searching for suppliers, products and services.

To coincide with the redesign and relaunch of Innovation in Textiles earlier this year, we launched Technical Textiles Finder, which does exactly what it says in its name – helps buyers find industry suppliers and products.

Increase your online visibility

Finding technical textiles products and technical textiles suppliers is easy with Technical Textiles Finder. Users can search the network to be instantly connected with technical textiles suppliers and their products.

But there is another side to Technical Textiles Finder, which is all about helping technical textiles industry suppliers to increase their online visibility. The site is highly search engine optimised to give listed companies good visibility with the leading search engines like Google.

In effect, it gives listed companies a ‘mini site’ within the directory which they can use to promote their companies and products via company profiles, images and video, and website and social media links.

Take this free listing by Assyst Bullmer for example. It profiles the company, lists their specialities, allows the company to be contacted by buyers and even shows its Twitter feed, other social media links and link to its website.


In six years we have successfully developed two of the leading industry news sites ( and from scratch and learned a lot along the way about how to engage with today’s online global textiles community.

We are also very fortunate to have a talented team of designers and developers as well as writers and with Technical Textiles Finder, we want to share that experience and give the industry what it deserves. It’s an amazingly creative and resourceful sector, which needs creative solutions from publishers. We think the Innovation in Textiles and Technical Textiles Finder combination is the perfect answer in that respect.

Technical Textiles Finder covers all aspects of technical textiles supply chains from raw materials through machinery and equipment to fabrics and finished goods. Detailed searches can be performed to find suppliers by technology or by market or even by geographical location.

Get your company listed

Getting your company listed on Technical Textiles Finder is free of charge and there are additional reasonably priced paid listings which offer extra benefits including higher visibility in search results.
