The Brazilian Association of Textile Retail, established in 1999, represents the main national retail chains which commercialize clothing, bags and fashion accessories, in addition to bed, table and bathroom. The entity keeps itself faithful to its principles which are ethics and the respect to legislation, supporting actions focused on social responsibility, formalization in commercial relations and combating against fraudulent competition.

The textile retail, represented by ABVTEX, brings together thousands of stores distributed throughout the national territory and creates a significant number of direct and indirect jobs. The expansion rate has been relevant in the latest years, due to the opening of new stores for the attendance of all income levels of the population.

Entity members represent around 15% of national retail sales, being that approximately 90% of commercialized goods are from the Brazilian textile industry. It is important to emphasize that the retail segment is spread throughout the national territory, by micro and small companies, which makes difficult the associative work.

The Brazilian Association of Textile Retail is the speaker of retail chains along with industry manufacturers, government agencies and other entities and associations involved in the activity.

As discussion forum, it provides analysis and experience exchanges concerning foreign trade, tributary issues and social responsibility, including the Suppliers Certification – ABVTEX development.
