The company model integrates all manufacturing processes in one vertical process with cutting edge technologies. •Goldentex is a market driven company with a produce-to-order strategy.

During its Lifetime Goldentex gained the trust of many world class customers such as Zara, Marks & Spencer, GAP, and Zegna. Goldentex exports to most of the world regions, however our exports are mainly to Europe, and North America. •Goldentex Co. is a subgroup of companies operating within the larger group
Arafa Holding.

Arafa’s business dates back to 1907 when Abdel Ma’ssoud Arafa established himself as a fabric retailer in the Nile Delta region. After many years in the Delta Area, the Arafa family moved its fabric retailing business to Cairo to increase visibility and to capitalize on the growing urban market. In 1956, the State of Egypt nationalized the family business. •In 1974, Mr. Ahmed Arafa, photo to the right, restarted the family business as a fabric retailer and expanded its operations to add garment production to the retail business. In 1977, he opened the first shop selling fabric and garments in Port Said. At this time all of the garments sold in the retail shop were finished products imported primarily from Europe. Shortly thereafter, Mr. Arafa expanded the business again by taking control of the manufacturing process for the garments to be sold in the Port Said retail shop, which included designing garments in France, buying fabric from England and manufacturing garments in Turkey and Hong Kong. In 1982, Mr. Arafa expanded the business once again by founding Goldentex Wool Company, which engaged in the production of textiles from raw materials (Wool tops mainly) to finished product. After Mr. Ahmed Arafa,  Mr. Arafa’s two sons, Eng. Ashraf Arafa and Dr. Alaa Arafa, continued to further develop and expand the family business as fabric and garment manufacturers and retailers.
