EURATEX has launched its EU-Ukraine Textile Initiative (EUTI) to facilitate cooperation between European and Ukrainian textile and apparel companies.

EUTI offers a single contact point for Ukrainian companies who seek support and cooperation with EU counterparts, and vice versa. The service is coordinated by EURATEX in close cooperation with UKRLEGPROM, the Ukrainian Association of enterprises of textile & leather industry.

There is potential to expand that relationship, both in the short term – to respond to urgent needs – but also in the longer run. As partner in the PEM Convention, Ukraine can play an important role in Europe’s textile and apparel supply chain.


Supporting the textile industry is our way to help the people of Ukraine. We encourage our European members to connect via EUTI and develop sustainable partnerships.

Dirk Vantyghem

EURATEX Director General

Today, we have many textile and apparel companies in Ukraine with expertise and skilled workers; they are able and willing to work with EU, but lack the contacts, customers and supplies. EUTI will help them.
