Supplier selection, Inventory control and economy order quantity is always 1 of the most important issues in manufacturing industries and textile industry is no exception. Unfortunately traditional performances of some managers in this industry have led to bankrupting and closuring of some factories. In this study, we use fuzzy Delphi, fuzzy AHP and VIKOR under fuzzy environment as a decision tool to supplier selection. The aim of this study is develop a model with high reliability for supplier selection in textile industry. From fuzzy Delphi we extracted five essential criteria and with fuzzy AHP we weight these criteria and with VIKOR under fuzzy environment we choose the best suppliers. We construct a questionnaire for fuzzy AHP and VIKOR that itís not needed to notice cost orientation or benefit orientation of criteria. Our finding shows that five criteria; quality, location, cost, trust and delivery are the most effective criteria in textile supplier selection area. According to our proposed method suppliers s9, s15, s16, s4, s5 are the best supplier.
