The Texmondo Story

Created in 1997 in Milan (Italy) and introduced by the end of June 1998 during the Pitti Filati Fair (Florence - Italy), Texmondo.com has been for years the first internet textile-apparel portal for housands of textile firms all over the world.

The original idea from the 1997 was very simple but quite ambitious: Using the emerging internet potential to serve the needs of textile professionals by federating the useful information worldwide. Our business model was also very basic: "to earn more than spending".

On the marketing side, Texmondo.com has been the first pure internet service making advertising in the "real" world. A revolution, ten years ago !

The famous internet "start-up" period (1999 - 2001) has been very difficult times for Texmondo.com. In fact, our customers was confused by the offers and the quantity of new competitors. On our side we wasn't willing to follow the -crazy- trends of the moment. Fortunately, our other services (consulting, marketing and web-design services) helped us to survive until the market becomes cleaner.

In 2000 Texmondo.com opens a headquarter in the south of France, near companies like DELL, IBM, Perrier, ...

In 2007, Texmondo.com celebrates his ten years and becomes a textile search engine.

Our philosophy is still unchanged: we still try to offers useful, simple and well targeted internet and marketing services for textile professionals at the best conditions.
