Welcome to ITSA

Every day, millions of people benefit from organizations that supply, launder and maintain linens, uniforms, protective clothing, mats and mops, towels, wipes and other reusable textiles. The nearly $125 Billion (USD) global linen, uniform and textile services industry serves businesses, retailers, hospitals and long-term care facilities, hotels, restaurants and other organizations to help enhance their image and provide clean, safe environments for their employees and customers. The industry employees more 1 million professionals worldwide and offers a sustainable alternative to home laundering and disposable products by leveraging expertise and volume to more cost-effective, efficiently and environmentally friendly processes.

The International Textile Services Alliance (ITSA) was established as a global forum to promote the value of textile, linen and uniform services and facilitate the exchange of information to further professionalize and improve cleanliness, safety and operations.
