* Factories are closing doors – some factories and brands with long history are closed and subject to administration.
WHAT ARE THE REASONS?
FAST FASHION – very strong competition from trademarks producing in countries with low standard, not respecting the principles of ETHICAL FASHION.
Outsourcing outside Italy – Due to the global price war, many jobs have been closed and exported outside Italy. The pricing policy of traders – Italian quality goods allow a large mark-up, which further limits the volume.
Destruction of the image of Italian production – some factories produce in Italy and do not respect the principles of ETHICAL FASHION – use low-skilled immigrants and using poor quality materials from the Far East. In this way they create a bad image of the Italian production.
Copying of Designs – trademarks from all over the world copy Italian product designs. Copying the label 'Made in Italy'.
RESULT Limiting sales capacity, which is a serious problem for business sustainability, keeping the existing and creating new jobs in the Italian supply chain.
