In 1998, Vision Textiles was founded in Shanghai, China by Monique Maissan as a trading office focused on ladies’ fashion wear. By 2000, a children’s wear department was added and Vision Textiles began to evolve from a wholesale trader to a manufacturer with two joint ventures in the Yangtze River Delta.
Vision Textiles began to grow rapidly by acquiring its own brand dedicated to school uniforms called SchoolCampusStuff® in 2006. In 2007, Vision Textiles opened its liaison office in Tirapur, India and its own factory in the region in 2011. The US office opened in North Carolina in 2012.
Going forward from 2013, Vision Textiles aims to focus on school and business uniforms with its Waste2Wear® brand and further explore all opportunities in recycled textiles.
Vision Textiles will continue its fashion department in order to keep up with the latest developments of the fashion industry and help European clients become acclimated to the Chinese retail market via International Solutions.
Vision Textiles prides itself on being an innovative company with the ability to adapt to ever-changing demands. With this motivation in mind, Vision Textiles registered a new brand in early 2012, Waste2Wear®
