Ayaydın Miroglio Group

The Ayaydın - Miroglio Group has been established by coming together with Ayaydın, a leading Turkish clothing industry corporation and the Italian clothing and textile giant Miroglio in May 2008. The roots of this partnership date back to 1986 in Turkey and 1883 in Italy.

In 1986, the Ayaydın Group entered the clothing retail market with its first brand, Ipekyol and rapidly reached a respectable status within the industry. By creating the Twist brand in 1997 and the Machka brand in 2004, Ayaydın kept marching toward its target to become an effective player both locally and globally. The Athens branch, established in 2005, plus increasing operations in seven countries within three years, turned the Ayaydın Group’s voyage of 22+ years into a real success story.
