2021: Challenges before the RMG market.

The RMG market of Bangladesh has been unprecedentedly disrupted by the Covid-19, as well as the recuperation process is fairly challenging for the industry given that the dilemma persists. The first wave of the pandemic swamped the industry with the cancellation of orders, delayed payments/discounts by customers, cash crisis hitting the backbone of the sector to maintain regular operations of the industry.

Thanks to our Honorable Head Of State for her visionary as well as gracious steps which aided the market to survive during the peak hr of Covid-19. Extension of wage aid loan as well as other vital stimulus plans for this sector, especially the easing off as well as improvement of the export growth fund, retention of foreign money in a single swimming pool for Back-to-Back import repayments, expanding the period of understanding of export earnings, and most importantly suspension of loan category enabled us to hold up against the impact of the first wave.

MarketsFigure 1: The recovery process is rather tough for the fabric as well as the apparel industry because the situation persists.

While we were trying to recuperate from the shock caused by the very first wave of the pandemic throughout July-September of 2020, the 2nd wave noted its beginning throughout the final quarter of 2020 and also has aggravated the scenario. On this background, it is challenging to task 2021 given that there is a number of uncertainties around us.

Healing from the virus, in addition to the recovery of the international economic situation, trade and company is still ambiguous to a terrific degree. Based on the current trend and situation it shows up that the international garments market might remain to experience a downturn till May/June 2021.

Significant challenges for the industry.

The slowdown in export:

The 2nd wave of Covid-19 has already required us to experience its extent as it paralyzed the western world. Cities in Europe as well as the UNITED STATES, which are the major markets of our garments, are either under lockdown or state of an emergency situation. Export has actually gotten on a falling pattern once more during October– December 2020, after small healing in August and September 2020.

RMG export in October 2020 has actually declined by 7.78% on a year-over-year (y-o-y) basis, while October 2019 had seen 19.79%, indicating that the development in October 2018, as well as 2020, is -26.03%. Similarly, the yo-y development of export in November 2020 was -2.66%, however, the development between November 2018 and also 2020 is -14.32%.

The just recently published data for December makes it much more dreadful as export plunged by 9.69%. This wrapped the yearly export performance with an unprecedented loss of 16.94%.

BangladeshNumber 2: RMG manufacturing facilities need wage assistance so they can support their employees.

Altering purchasing habits and underutilization of capacity:.

With the detection of the brand-new strain of the infection, as well as retail sales growth in both the UNITED STATES as well as EU, got on a declining trend (i.e., -16% in November and also -13% in October 2020 specifically), the scenario has further aggravated at the acquiring end.

Though we don’t have an inclusive picture over the real-time ‘cancellation’ scenario in the industry and non-payments, however a study on 50 factories reveals that as opposed to cancellation purchasers are adhering to a ‘go slow’ strategy in placing brand-new orders as well as manufacturing facilities reported 30% less order, which is the picture industry-wide and also worsening every day. Though the very first wave was much more severe and also termination throughout the 2nd wave is not that rampant, but purchasers are complying with various approaches to managing their supply chain. Rather than cancellation, we are experiencing stagnation in order positionings. This is as drastically adverse as the very first wave given that factories are not being able to have a projection as well as prepare their ability. Such an unpredictability places the market in an uncertain scenario and also influences the location of–.

  • Unpredictability over validated business, delivery, settlement as well as WIPs.
  • Appropriation of capacity (utilized as well as unutilized).
  • Optimum management of supply chain and also use resources.
  • Financial impact as well as organization practicality.

The unmatched decrease in rate:

While the cost decline has actually currently been a pattern in the worldwide market for years, the COVID-19-led disturbance has actually additionally escalated the situation. We have actually shed 2.87%- system worth in 2020, and also during September-December, the decline was videotaped at 4.82%. Given the circumstance of underutilization of ability which currently spurred price as well as the enhanced price of compliance specifically to preserve health and safety at manufacturing facilities, such a scenario is unsustainable.

Financial vulnerability and support needed to reconstruct the industry:.

This is essential to note the differences between the impact of the initial wave and the 2nd wave of COVID-19. With a slight time out, the reoccurrence of COVID has actually appeared as ‘guillotining the currently dead’. Injured by the initial wave the market was currently bleeding as well as left to such a disrupted as well as the weakest placement that intensity of a fraction of the size of the first wave might be much more intense.

Important to keep in mind that–.

The industry has shed 6 billion dollars in export in FY2019-20, meaning that the capacity was seriously under-utilized.

Acceptation of high price cuts and postponed payments to get rid of the canceled products which have its impact on the monetary security of this sector (we shed 4.85% of device worth because September on a year-over-year basis).

  • The forced finance has been created versus manufacturing facilities mainly benefiting bankrupted customers.
  • The sector had to pay incomes and all the routine settlements (important expenses). The repayment of the wage support lending is arranged to begin with January 2021 which has a significant financial bearing on factories. An example might be helpful to understand the scenario. If a manufacturing facilities’ wage bill is 1 crore taka monthly, then it has drawn (1X4 =-RRB- 4 crore takas as wage loan incentive for April-July, as well as an equal installation over 18 months, would certainly cost 22 lacs, Taka, each month, which is one-fifth of the usual salaries of a regular month. During this dilemma moment, when manufacturing facilities are still in a troubling situation as well as tough to stay in company with regular costs when the cost is lowered as much as 5% which is around 30% of the month-to-month wage, so the payment of 20% extra wages while running in less capacity-efficiency hence presuming boosted expenses prices each of item, as well as obtaining much less paid off an amount matching to 30% of month-to-month salaries, it is logically and mathematically not supporting the business design.
  • In addition, considering that the export markets are deeply shocked by the 2nd wave as well as the influence on export appears, to enable the factories to make it through and also to safeguard the livelihoods of millions a second stimulation package, particularly wage support car loan would be crucial for the sector for at the very least 4 months.

Restoration of the industry from the damages done by COVID-19 and shielding the resources of our employees is of topmost concern for us in 2021. While we need legal protection to conserve our manufacturing facilities from forced lendings triggered by purchasers’ bankruptcies, unique actions are needed to allow factories to turn-around from the problems, especially eliminating them from negative financings and superior responsibilities for a considerable period to make sure that the factories don’t experience suffocating line of credit from banks.

Bangladesh Textile

We are ever before grateful for the supports from the government which saved the market as well as the source of income of our 4.1 million workers from a feasible tragic repercussion of the first wave. We hope that with the continued assistance from the federal government we will certainly have the ability to remain in the program throughout the second wave, though it’s really difficult to predict the intensity of the effect on the global economic situation as well as the healing procedure.

Vulnerability in the trading system, e.g., legal arrangement:.

COVID has subjected the vulnerability in an international profession which needs to be resolved pragmatically as well as methodically to make trade a lot more foreseeable, more secure, and lasting for humanity. The weak points in the contractual arrangements between events in the global profession are something that has actually been exposed by COVID and needs to be attended to. The circumstances like insolvencies of the global brands as well as resulting non-payments to suppliers throughout borders must be taken with sufficient relevance. Proper guard measure is additionally needed internationally by online forums like WTO or WCO or UNCTAD or ICC in collaboration with developed and also establishing nations to guarantee due diligence in trade.

Besides, we need policy reforms to settle bankruptcy to ensure that it safeguards company and also an investment, also makes the path of new business owners smoother. The requirement for a risk-free departure policy has actually been a desire by the industry for rather a long time, and the post-pandemic restoration of the industry may fail without an ideal arrangement to manage bankruptcies.

Preserving health as well as hygiene at the office:.

Figure 3: Bangladeshi RMG market has been keeping rigorous precautions to ensure workers’ safety and security.

While conserving the sector from additional disturbance by COVID and keeping more secure operation, specifically the health and health practices across the market, would be the top priority in the coming days. BGMEA has actually taken several action in this area in collaboration with ILO and also Maya to elevate understanding amongst the employees at factories.

4th IR led disruptions:.

Technology has actually been among the few wonderful forces which are mosting likely to improve the industry and the supply chain in near future, be it digital payment of wages or seeking the path towards technology.

The readymade garment industry has already made a considerable move in the location of digital wage repayments just recently, and also according to the visionary leadership and directives by our Honorable Head Of State Sheikh Hasina almost all the garment workers were paid with their salaries electronically (either through digital financial institution transfer or mobile financial outlets) throughout the months of the first wave of COVID. BGMEA has been proactively entailed with the government and also promoting electronic wage settlement because in 2015, and also presently, we are working together with a firm which is dealing with an interoperable electronic deal model.

Besides technology and effectiveness has been one of the concern agenda for us to ensure organizational sustainability, and also we are working on that front to enable our members quickly access modern technologies, in terms of structure capacity via abilities growth as well as creating accessibility to funding.

The rising share of internet sales vis-à-vis brick and mortar has acquired additional energy as a result of COVID-led germophobia which might dramatically transform the acquiring actions of the consumers. So, it is about time Bangladesh reviewed its method pertaining to internet marketing and sales.

Market accessibility in message LDC age and also sustainable graduation:.

LDC college graduation is a matter of satisfaction for us and also it is essential for us to likewise comprehend the difficulties that Bangladesh has. 73% of Bangladesh’s RMG exports appreciate duty-free access as an LDC ($ 25 billion out of $34 billion), which will be totally forgoed, and also the margin of choice will certainly reduce for Bangladeshi products compared to our competitor nations, particularly for Vietnam given that Vietnam has actually signed FTA with EU which will be found in to force the following month or in August this year.

Moreover, in the EU, we take pleasure in single change regulations of a beginning under EBA at this moment, as well as with the college graduation, Bangladesh will have 2 choices– GSP And also or Criterion GSP, as well as both of them, require dual improvement guidelines of beginning which is hard for us as well as will make it challenging to completely make use of the EU GSP as we are presently taking pleasure in. Besides, there are a couple of requirements that a nation need to satisfy to get approved for GSP Plus, especially the approval and also conformity to 27 worldwide conventions and also the condition to adhere to the 7.4% threshold will certainly come on our method to preserve advantageous accessibility to the EU market. With everything set as well as done, with Vietnams EUFTA entering play, the expansion of EBA (via bilateral or multilateral campaigns), and exploring FTA opportunities with preference-giving nations are necessary. Consequently, charting our path to lasting graduation, effectively going after the matter of insolvency resolution would be on our cards.


Diversification of items within RMG as well as diversifying the export fields will certainly be key to Bangladesh’s continual commercial development.

Ending Comments.

It’s tough to attract a forecast on 2021 given that we have several uncertainties to be removed like having the infection as well as the success of the vaccines/vaccination, and just how rapidly the worldwide economic climate reacts in the post-pandemic age.
Probably we are at the end of the passage, however, the ray is not noticeable yet to forecast the future with confidence. Yet we absolutely really hope that 2021 will certainly be a year of coming back and also we expect the sector to make a turn-around at some time in mid-2021. Now we need to be extra watchful as well as keep an eye on the situation very carefully.
Given the fact that Bangladesh inhabits only 6.8% of the worldwide market, we have substantial capacities and stamina to contribute more to our economic climate in the coming days.

Bangladesh and various other pants exporting nations witness a dip in export to the United States.

Leading denim provider country in the USA, Bangladesh saw its deliveries dip 3.73% for the 11 months via November to $522.78 million, on par with the previous month’s information from the Business Division’s Workplace of Textiles & Garments (OTEXA).

The denim acquisition was hit severely throughout the pandemic. Yet steadied in November amidst a holiday push. In the year to date via November, denim apparel imports decreased 26.01% to a worth of $2.57 billion contrasted to the very same 11-month period in 2019, according to new data from OTEXA. The decline was a slight growth from the 27.42 percent year-to-date decrease in October.


Figure: Pants export USA decreased in November 2020.

While imports of jeans clothing from No. 2 producer Mexico fell 43.6 percent to $424.74 million.

3rd-place Vietnam shed several of its gains from the prior two months, with a year-to-date boost of 0.68 percent to $342.09 million in November. This trailed by 1.08 percent and 1.77 percent year-to-date rise in October as well as September, alike. China continued to lose ground as a pants production facility in the month. For the year today via November, imports from China nosedived 53.75 percent to $304.82 million.

Chinese manufacturers have actually been handling results from the pandemic similar to the remainder of the globe, while additionally dealing with the calculated sourcing shifts by importers wanting to lower danger and costs from tariffs derived from the professional war with the UNITED STATE

Morris Goldfarb, Chairman and CEO of G-III Clothing Group, claimed on a conference call with experts last month that “Our development of the product, as well as production in China, boil down substantially.”.

” We have actually done a masterful job of reducing our China production from possibly 85 percent of this firm’s manufacturing several years ago down to … around 30 percent today,” Goldfarb said.

Among second-tier countries with a smaller sized market share, imports from Cambodia continued to show stamina, with a year-to-date gain of 13.62 percent to $130.77 million. Pakistan squashed its decline to 3.25 percent to $227.81 million in the period.

Amongst 3rd-tier distributors with notable gains were Madagascar, up 5.45 percent to $30.60 million, and also Ethiopia, getting 21.59 percent to $21.29 million.

BGMEA signed an agreement with Sidley Austin to obtain advice on GSP expansion.

Bangladesh’s top apparel body the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and also Exporters Association (BGMEA) has actually authorized an agreement with Sidley Austin LLP to get advisory services to extend duty-free trade benefits to the EU when Bangladesh leaves the states of least industrialized nations (LDCs).

Just recently, the first meeting among the BGMEA, Sidley as well as various other officials worried was held practically, joined by Tariff Compensation and Economic Relations Department (ERD) reps.


Number: BGMEA has actually authorized arrangement with Sidley Austin LLP to receive advising services to obtain duty-free professional advantages to the EU expanded when Bangladesh fallen leaves LDC condition.

The Sidley legal representatives will certainly guidance BGMEA in making debates and also methods to prolong special market accessibility right into the European Union, with a focus on the continuous EU GSP reform discussions as well as Brexit.

Rubana Huq, Head Of State of the BGMEA stated, “Sidley Austin’s solutions are free under its Trade for Development Initiative, Emerging Enterprises done for a free program.”.

” Sidley will certainly be supporting BGMEA to establish plan standards to be submitted to the govt. so that the viewpoint of the economic sector is communicated to the policymakers,” Huq stated.

” BGMEA intends to assure that the govt. agents must also kindly be in sync with the private sector’s interaction with Sidley to make sure that a shared site can be created,” said Huq.

” Sidley Austin will aid the BGMEA with mounting the grounds based on the federal government’s prolonged Every little thing But Arms (EBA) involvement request,” informed Huq.

Bangladesh’s graduation from LDC to a developing country (DC) in 2024 will finish the Generalised System of Preferences (GSP) entirely– which allowed Bangladesh’s shipments duty-free access to considering its LDC standing.

Though, the EU has actually provided a 3-year grace period on the facility adhering to the graduation.

Bangladesh is attempting to prolong its current GSP standing past 2027 as the regional economic situation was cruelly contracted from the COVID-19.

Bangladesh has actually been pressing with the EU through an LDC team under World Profession Organisation (WTO), with the business ministry requesting for 10 more years past 2024.

EU is the largest export location in Bangladesh. With total exports increased from 58% to 61% in the past ten years.

According to a current study by the BGMEA, Bangladesh’s significant export item, the garment will certainly lose $4 billion in export to the EU after graduation. Despite having the GSP facility, the export loss will amount to $3.2 billion.

the study also showed that the reliance of Bangladesh’s exports on zero-duty benefits of the EU’s GSP has expanded by 9.03% in the past ten years to $17.15 billion in November last year.

At present, some $25 billion or 73% of exterior trade of Bangladesh enjoys duty-free access for the LDC condition, which will end with the effect of LDC graduation.

To come to be eligible for the EU’s GSP Plus criteria, Bangladesh will certainly have to validate and successfully carried out 27 international conventions on labor civil liberties, civil rights, environmental protection as well as excellent administration.

The EU is currently modifying its GSP scheme for 2023 which will be finalized soon.

Anti-bacterial advancements to concentrate on Yarn Expo Springtime

The much-anticipated Thread Exposition Springtime Version, to be held on 10 to 12 March 2021 at the National Exhibit and Convention Centre (Shanghai). The event will certainly stress anti-bacterial and hygiene products.

Apparel providers will exhibit a collection of natural as well as blended threads like cotton, woolen, flax, manufactured fibers and threads, and also specialized items including elastic, fancy, and mixed threads.

Wendy Wen, Elder General Manager of Messe Frankfurt said, “After the successful verdict of the Autumn Version, Yarn Exposition stays a reputable as well as a stable trading system for the sector in times of modification as well as uncertainty, with feedback from the previous version detailing the important support the reasonable provides our buyers as well as exhibitors.”

” As we look in advance, the upcoming Spring Edition will certainly continue to cater to market demands, supplying comprehensive sourcing for resources with online and hybrid solutions running in tandem with the physical fair. And also as the market shows promising signs of recovery, we are glad that our digital services make certain the fairs ease of access to all,” Wendy Wen informed.

Additionally, to the physical event, Yarn Expo will certainly deliver online services for those unable to take a trip. Exhibitors can profit from the crossbreed exhibition plan which allows companies to display their fibers and threads onsite at the committed display area, enabling customers to check out the products close-up.

These ‘hybrid exhibitors’ will certainly additionally have the ability to obtain a calling card with the help of an onsite team and also make use of video devices to aid introduce their brand.

Besides, all individuals will certainly have access to the electronic company matching system where they can join with both onsite as well as online business companions through the immediate messaging and video calling functions, offered previously, during, and after the reasonable.

Along with the Yarn Expo Springtime, there will certainly be 4 parallel events; Intertextile Shanghai Clothing Fabrics— Springtime Edition, Intertextile Shanghai House Textiles– Spring Version, PH Value, and also the China International Style Fair (CHIC).

Together, the shows consist of the whole fabric supply chain, supplying a one-stop sourcing platform for the fabric and fashion industry with reinforced potential and also worth for all individuals.

Wen highlighted, “The Fall Version showed a considerable boost sought after for antibacterial yarns as well as fibers, and also currently emerging fad that has been dramatically increased by the international pandemic.”

” Individuals have long-recognized the program as a location to uncover and also stay afresh with the sector, with site visitors and exhibitors appreciating more than ever the opportunity to discover the latest market information. With that said claimed, we anticipate supporting the advancement of market trends in the coming year,” Wen added.

Kent Wang, Sales Supervisor of Shanghai Xinya New Product Technology in China, who is displaying at the program stated, “Our business has actually experienced development amid the pandemic. We have actually brought quite some anti-bacterial items to the reasonable as well as consumers’ feedback has actually declared. The physical reasonable provided us with the chance to have in-person communications with customers which have actually confirmed to be reliable.”

” The yield is greater than I expected as well as we have actually already met some potential consumers,” Wang included.

Bacterial cellulose dilapidation system can raise biofuels manufacturing

Scientists have exposed facts of how a particular sort of microorganisms breaks down cellulose– an exploration that can profit cut the price and also the environmental influence of using biomass, consisting of biofuel manufacturing. The bacteria’s cellulose destruction system remains in some means different from just how a fungus is currently extensively used in industry, including to soften up denim to make stone-washed types of denim.

Initiatives to discover methods to break down cellulose, the challenging stuff that composes plant cell walls, faster as well as a lot more proficiently have long been an objective of commercial scientists.

Bacterial cellulose system lift biofuels productionNumber: Scientists have disclosed facts of exactly how a particular type of germs breaks down cellulose.

When plants are processed right into biofuels or other biomass applications, cellulose has to be weakened right into less complex sugar molecules first, and also this action can represent up to a quarter of the operating and funding expenses of biofuel production. If this procedure can be made faster and also much more effective, it won’t just conserve market money, however, such effectiveness could also minimize the environmental impact of manufacturing.

Cellulose particles bind extremely strongly per other, making cellulose really difficult to break down. Some fungi can break it down, nonetheless, as well as their cellulose deterioration systems are well known.

The fungus produces lots of sorts of cellulases– enzymes that quicken the chemical reaction that weakens cellulose. And also such fungus has been extensively made use of in industry consequently.

For instance, the fungi Trichoderma reesei– found during World War Two in the Pacific as a result of its gnawing at camping tents and also garments– is utilized in the production of stone-washed pants. Cellobiohydrolase, a sort of cellulose that the fungi produce, breaks down cellulose into cellobiose, a simple sugar a lot more conveniently able to be used by organisms. This somewhat degrades the denim material in places, which consequently softens it– making it look like if cleaned with rocks– and also makes it comfier to put on.

But there is another sort of cellulose degradation system made use of by some microorganisms, as well as which is similar in many methods to that utilized by these fungi. However, this system has not been quite possibly comprehended previously. In a paper in the Journal of Biological Chemistry on August 18th, researchers from Japan’s Institute for Molecular Scientific Research, National Institutes of Natural Sciences (IMS, NINS) have ultimately described this system thoroughly at the single-molecule degree.

The type of cellobiohydrolase generated by the bacterium Cellulomonas fimi has a similar catalytic domain to the cellobiohydrolase generated by T. reesei.

The catalytic domain name of an enzyme is its area that connects with a particle that it wishes to change or damage down (to trigger the chemical reaction). Both the fungi and also the germs’ cellulose deterioration system additionally exhibit comparable hydrolytic tasks (the way that they utilize water to break down the cellulose’s chemical bonds).

However, the two systems have different carbohydrate-binding modules (the collection of proteins in the enzyme that binds to the carbohydrates in the cellulose) as well as what are called “linkers,” essentially the part of the enzyme that links the catalytic domain name to the carbohydrate-binding components.

In an earlier study, the NINS researchers had actually currently developed that the structure of the linker area of the fungal cellobiohydrolase played an essential function in just how quickly the enzyme binds to cellulose (and hence exactly how fast the system degrades cellulose).

” So the noticeable following inquiries were: Despite the fact that these other parts of the bacterium’s cellobiohydrolase are various to those of the fungi, do they nonetheless do something similar?” said Akihiko Nakamura as well as Ryota Iino, the scientists on the team.

Nakamura included, “Do they also quicken cellulose degradation?”

They located that they do. The scientists used single-molecule fluorescence imaging– an innovative approach of microscopy that delivers pictures of living cells with a resolution of simply 10s of nanometers– to observe the microorganism’s cellobiohydrolase binding to as well as dissociating from cellulose particles.

This permitted them to clarify the features of the different parts of the cellulose destruction system. They discovered that the carbohydrate-binding modules were without a doubt important for the initial binding, yet the role played by the linker region was fairly minor.

Nevertheless, they found that the catalytic domain was not so similar nevertheless. Its structure showed longer loopholes at the entrance and also leave of a “passage” in the heart of the system contrasted to that of the fungus. And also this distinction in the tunnel framework leads to greater processivity– the ability of an enzyme to set off multiple successive reactions.

The next steps will certainly be to craft these microbial cellulose-degrading enzymes to break down cellulose faster.

RMG export revenues contribution to national export decreased in 2020

Bangladesh’s economic foundation, its readymade garment (RMG) manufacturing export profits, which generally adds 84% to the national exports, dropped 2.99% to $15.54 billion, according to data from the Export Promotion Bureau (EPB).

July Dec 2020 y o y Bangladesh apparelNumber: The general garment export observed an extraordinary 16.94% year-on-year drop in 2020.

In addition to it in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic calamity, the general garment export observed an amazing 16.94% year-on-year drop in 2020.

Rubana Huq, Head Of State of the Bangladesh Garment Manufacturers and Exporters Organization (BGMEA) claimed, “Provided the impacts of the lockdowns in Europe and the United States as well as their effect on retail as well as need, the worst-ever Xmas sales, and also the effect of price decline, it was a dark year for the sector.”

Of the export revenues, knitwear shipment gained $8.52 billion, up 3.9% from a year back. While woven exports decreased by 10.22% to $7.01 billion.

Amid this adverse circumstance, the knitwear export climbed as consumers mostly use informal dresses as they function and also remain from home due to the COVID-19 situation.

EPB information additionally revealed that clothing export was down 9.64% in December as the pandemic remains to pound the global economy.

Last month, woven garment export revealed the worst performance since June plunging 18.07%. While knitwear export fell 0.45%.

“As the anxieties, as well as tensions instigated by the 2nd wave, continue tied with the relatively bad administration as well as the absence of injections, and the impact on worldwide economic climate it would certainly leave, this drop in RMG exports will probably continue until April,” Huq added.

Mohammad Hatem, Senior Citizen Vice-President of the Bangladesh Knitwear Manufacturers and Exporters Organization (BKMEA), more extended homestay by people for the greater export of knitwear things.

Hatem told the ‘Made in Bangladesh’ knitwear items rates were lower contrasted to those in various other garments production nations.

“As an outcome, fashion buyers have actually proceeded their service with Bangladesh even throughout the pandemic. Though in knitwear things situation, the shorter lead time is a vital variable, Mohammad Hatem included.

Sourcing raw materials for knitwear items were not a problem for the neighborhood manufacturers as these are readily available in your area. Whereas the majority of raw materials required to generate woven garments, traders need to depend on imports.
