Textile Industry working on reinventing itself
The textile industry is continuing facing the illegal textile trading and now the companies need to think and work very hard to develop new ideas not just to fight the sale of the illegal garments at a lower price but also to be more competitive. The industry cannot wait for the government to solve the problem so actions must be taken against this scenario.
Since the problem cannot be solved immediately, the only way right now to work against it, is to develop new markets, following the most highest levels of quality control, buying and selling is no longer enough for the textile entrepreneur and now is the time to look for new tendencies of design and production that are already running all around the world; if not, the apparel industry will be left behind; however, the view seems to be promising and the government is already informing that the illegal trading is decreasing, feeling confident that the programs they are running are giving the expected results.
Industrial entrepreneurs foresee the apparel business in Mexico to grow in the following years, for Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, it is mandatory to offer quality products, this is how the company has been present in the market through all these years without been affected by illegal trading of the local business.
“I think that we need to build a partnership between designers, vendors and entrepreneurs in order to create and consolidate biggest fashion collections, we need to keep on doing the apparel trade shows to make stronger relationships for the Mexican market, showing machinery, chemicals, new fabrics, new manufacturing processes, runways, business and exportation plans, investment and also conferences about new trending, we need to keep on innovating”, said Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal.
