The Kingdom Bites Back!

Renaissance For English Manufacturing

Posted in Made In England by martinbatt on April 26, 2010

Today we all buy cheap clothes from Asia, predominantly from China and India, however based on Hans Roslings predictions in (Asia’s Rise How and When) during the next 40 years China and India will have an average cost level which is equivalent to the UK. This means that the availability of cheap clothing production will decrease in the Asian countries. Other important issues will be the carbon footprint created by shipping goods half way across the world and the growing market for quality goods and clothing due to the growth in the middle and upper classes in China and India. The preservation of traditional skills for production of quality clothing and fabrics is a critical issue. One of the most recongnized English quality brands are the bespoke tailoring companies of Savile Row and their suppliers.
