We conducted a pleasant interview with Dil_at Öney, Brand Manager of the Firm, and Samet Öney who has been newly elected as the chairman of textile and clothing committee for the Marmara Businessmen Association (MASIAD).
Would you inform about establishment and current situation of Soney?
A- Establishment of our firm goes back to 6 years ago. As for before, our history in the textile sector stems from working at our grandfather business in the textile sector. So, I have come nowadays working at my grandfather since 1974 up to the 1980s. After 1980, we had established our own firm as two partners. Lasting our partnership for 25 years, then we have established our own firm. What would you like to tell about the product kinds and capacity of Soney? Our firm’s production capacity is thirty thousand sq meters, but we can be able to increase this up to fifty thousand sq meters. However our aim is not to rise by high meters, making higher in quality product being able to sell upper levels, shortly to work as boutique. I can say that there is wide product range of ours.

We reveal products in upholstery fabric and curtains with very
high R & D activities. Together with this, our products that we make are followed in the market. Frankly, I think being counterfeited and replicated is a pleasing thing. Because, while someone is replicating your products, you had set sail
