Chile’s textile and apparel market has long been an important part of the global industry. It outperformed Mexico, Uruguay, and Peru. The stability of the Chilean economy has boosted consumer confidence. This has also allowed retailers from around the world to enter the textile industry. Several luxury brands have recently registered impressive sales. The country’s government is encouraging the export of textile products from other nations.
The average production time for a product ranges from eight to twelve weeks, depending on the design and the number of pieces needed. Some products can be ready to ship in just 12 days. The country’s foreign currency shortages complicate trade. Nevertheless, Chile’s textile and apparel sector remains stable and attractive.
The country’s customs service is very busy. This can slow the supply chain of apparel manufacturers. In addition, Ethiopia’s road link with the port in Djibouti is outdated and congested in many places. The government is working on a more efficient regulatory framework. In addition, officials are sending representatives to Asia to learn best practices.
The country has the potential to become one of the largest clothing producers in the world. The apparel industry accounts for over 30 percent of the country’s GDP. Currently, 60,000 workers work in 800 manufacturing plants. The government has invested heavily in improving the industry and making it more competitive. The country’s wages are relatively stable, compared to other third-world countries.
The country’s population is young, ensuring that the apparel industry will continue to grow. Its consumers have a high disposable income. They are also friendly to foreign brands. The country has a stable political environment. This has contributed to the rise in investor confidence.
The country has multiple free trade agreements with the US. It also has a strong partnership with Central America. These agreements allow for exports to be duty-free. However, the country is in the midst of a serious pandemic, which has affected the economy. In addition, the country has a dense bureaucracy and limited capacity.
The country’s import duties for textiles are 17 percent. These duties are in place until January 1, 2015. The Chilean government has recently decided to grant duty-free access to Bangladeshi goods. These products will be permitted to be imported duty-free beginning January 2015.
A recent entrant into the Chile market is GAP. The company specializes in private labels. It has several design offices in the United States and the UK, as well as an in-house design team.
3 Bellavista Oveja Tome
Located in the southern region of Chile, Bellavista Oveja Tome is one of the largest garment manufacturing companies in the country. In 2008, the company filed for bankruptcy and left behind more than a century’s worth of history.
In the years leading up to its downfall, Bellavista Oveja Tome was a profitable firm whose product line included some of the most coveted garments in the world. However, the company failed to garner enough financing to turn around its faltering business. In an attempt to recover from its misadventures, it teamed up with a consortium of textile companies led by Hilados y Tejidos Graib S.A., and is now operating as Panos Oveja Bellavista Tome S.A., in Santiago.
The Bellavista Oveja Tome is not the only Chilean firm to make an impact on the global garment industry. Other notables include Panos Bio Bio S.A., and the Hilados y Tejidos Graib SA, as well as the aforementioned Panos Oveja Bellavista. As a result, some of the country’s worsted mills are enjoying a revival, as are the nation’s largest exporters. A cursory look at the company’s financial reports, however, reveals a different story.
Despite the company’s financial struggles, the company did prove its mettle with a series of clever marketing campaigns. Among the most noteworthy are a revamped web presence and a new advertising campaign centered around a line of high-end opulently designed t-shirts. In the company’s longstanding tradition of community-mindedness, it’s also made a special effort to involve the community in the design and construction of its products. In particular, the company partnered with a local nonprofit organization, and its employees were able to volunteer to help out during the holiday season.
The company is also taking a page from its competitors’ books, introducing a new product, the first ever “synthetic” wool sweater. This is an important step, as the company has been producing wool sweaters since the early 1990s. The company is also launching an apparel recycling program, with plans to have its operations in Santiago completely de-manufactured by the end of 2015.
