For several years, textiles have been one of the most purchased items during the end-of-year holidays. During this period, the French took advantage of this to favor textile brands where prices are quite expensive. Textiles represent a turnover of 16 billion euros in France in 2023. This year again, store traffic increased by 16% compared to 2022.
100 billion items of clothing are produced per year worldwide to respond, among other things, to peak sales during the end-of-year holidays. Customers tend to buy more holiday clothing for gifts or simply because of changes in temperature.

At Christmas, sales companies face significant logistical challenges linked to the optimization of their warehouses. Preparing for the holidays represents a real organizational challenge.
