Ilshin endeavors to renew itself everyday.
Established in 1951, Ilshin spinning has been producing cotton yarn for more than half a century. The textile industry played a pivotal role in Korea’s economic development by solidifying itself as the top exporter up until 1987.
Despite the intense industrial contraction that took place after the 1988 Seoul Olympics, we have continued to expand our advanced automated facilities and became the leading company in terms of both facility scale and product quality as well. As the leader of the textile industry, Ilshin is committed to develop and progress every day.
today and every day
This passage from the “Great Learning”, one of the “Four Books” in Confucianism, emphasizes that you should not neglect cultivating virtues by correcting your mistakes on a daily basis.
Ilshin is the courtesy name of
Mun Ik-jeom, who introduced cottonseed to Korea.
Mun Ik-jeom was a politician and scholar during the late Goryeo dynasty. He was popularly known as Ilshin and his penname was Samudang. In 1363, he went to Yuan, China as an ambassador and on his return to Korea he hid cottonseed in the cap of his writing brush and brought it secretly into the country.
Ilshin was ranked No.1 in the Most Respected Companies in Korea in the category of fibers and cotton spinning for consecutive years.
