Nowadays, Inditex, parent company of the Zara retail stores, is has become a true textile empire. Made up of almost a hundred companies that deal with textile design, production and distribution, Inditex operates over 5,500 stores in 77 countries across the globe and owns brands like Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Oysho, Pull and Bear and Stradivarius.
