Our founder Selahattin SAYDAM sets the foundations of today’s Saydam Textile by buying two looms. He replies to the question : “Why fabric ?” with the following answer : “People buy fabric for weddings, festivals, in other words, for their happy days. And this happiness reflects back to the seller.”
