Description

If you love clothing or are interested in learning about one of Medellín's biggest industries, take this guided tour of the city's most significant and representative textile centers and factories. Travel by air-conditioned vehicle from downtown manufacturers to a large clothing outlet. If you're in business, this is an opportunity to identify business potential, understand the local textile processes, and visualize the final export product straight from the factory outlets.

After hotel pickup by your guide at your Medellín hotel, your textile tour begins downtown, where an array of local manufacturers display their creative collections along vibrant boulevards such as Junín and Palacé.

Walk around the former Palace of Justice to discover its Gothic architecture while getting a feel for Medellín's culture and checking out the many shops with competitive prices. The palace was recently remodeled to open doors for the thousands of manufacturers in the clothing industry that account for being the main source of income for the region. You'll have free time to walk around and take photos, and you can take a break to use the restroom or grab a snack at any time (own expense; it is recommend that you bring cash as not every store takes credit cards).

The second part of your tour takes you to a large clothing outlet located south of Medellín, where a huge variety of designers and manufacturers can be found on a larger scale. Known as Itagüi, this impressive clothing district gathers the whole manufacturing textile chain around a few blocks for your convenience. Find amazing offers and learn valuable tips from your guide as you're shown around colorful shops and warehouses—a unique way to experience an aspect of the city that most visitors don't see while learning about the most profitable industry in Medellín and its detailed processes. You'll leave with a close look at authentic designers and manufacturers around the Medellín area, exploring possibilities for future business that you wouldn’t find anywhere else.

After a couple of hours introducing you to the local clothing industry, you'll return to your hotel or another location you prefer for drop-off.
