Important information regarding the contacts and business relationships that you make through the B2B MARKET PLACE, keep in mind that:

  1. PROCOLOMBIA accompanies companies with the purpose of facilitating business opportunities between exporters and buyers, without intervening in purchase and/or sale decisions, therefore, the contractual and legal responsibility of commercial negotiations falls directly on the companies that carried out the commercial transaction (exporter and buyer).
  2. Although PROCOLOMBIA carries out a preliminary investigation of the companies as part of its work methodology and commercial management, this process does not constitute any guarantee of compliance in the negotiations between the parties, for this reason it is recommended that both the exporter and the buyer carry out their own validations and protect their commercial operations with the mechanisms available in international trade regulations.
  3. The relationship between PROCOLOMBIA and the companies in Colombia and abroad, is generated through trust and the experience acquired from previous actions; however, such companies may present situations that could lead to possible breaches, without these being the responsibility of PROCOLOMBIA, which is why both exporters and buyers must ensure that they use secure negotiation tools, seek advice from experts to assess commercial risks and formalize the contractual documents that may be necessary to shield their conversations.
  4. ProColombia will in no case be responsible for the information of the companies and/or products available on this platform since it is filled out completely by each one of the companies.

manufacture of upholstery in Colombia

When it comes to the home textile industry, there is a big part of the manufacture of upholstery in Colombia.

It is well known that Colombia has become the number one flat weave fabric exporter in South America. The Colombian textile industry comprises 9.4% of the total industrial GDP and employs around 600,000 people. In 2019, sales in the country amounted to USD 8 billion, and more than 1,200 Colombian companies in this industry exported their product to over 100 countries.

With this big picture, we have the Colombian home decor. Any household has several needs of curtains, rugs, carpets, bedclothes, and some others. When we look deeply into the Colombian rugs, there is a little town near Bogotá, called Cajicá, nationally known for its tapestry blankets and 'ruanas,' our national coat.

Cajicá has over 450 years of existence, and due to its climate characteristics, has a considerable amount of sheep and wool ready to be discovered by the industry. When you cross the town, you have a street filled with upholstery shop; you can find Colombian hand made tapestry or importations from India or China.

The added value of this little town, besides the options, is the custom made products that you can find. There are different techniques to develop a Colombian rug. Still, the most famous one is the point-to-point knitting wool process, where the artisan knits different types of wool with different colors and textures, giving a beautiful and unique result.
