ABOUT FLYING TEX

Adaptability, creativity, and quality define who we are.

The origin of present day Flying Tex Co., Ltd. is a metaphor to Taiwan’s flourishing textile industry that enjoys a fully integrated supply chain from fiber, yarn, fabric, dyes, finishing and garment production. Since the 1990, Taiwan’s yarns and fabrics have been highly recognized in the global market by leading international brands, in particular functional products. During this growth and innovation age also saw the establishment of Flying Tex in 1997 by founder Peter Lin who moved from the rural south to urban Taipei and set up one of Taiwan’s pioneering performance textile trading companies for the world stage. The origin of the company’s name originates from a proverb “Flying over the four seas, Anchored under the skies”.

Since 1997 the company has built and secured status as an innovative and reliable supplier of advanced technical textiles for global sportswear brands.

Over the past decade, special projects have introduced diversity to our fabrics ranging from applications in yachting, horseback riding, various extreme sports, street fashion, product design, accessories and other creative pursuits. Today we are humbly grateful to have grown together with our partners. Inspired by the success of our longtime partners, we continue to support growing brands and brilliant designers. We embrace ethical, functional and sustainable principles within our office culture and throughout every stage of product development. We have established points of contact in France, Germany, Taiwan and the United States. We are 100% Made in Taiwan.
