|THE KENYAN TEXTILE AND FASHION INDUSTRY|
The economic development story of the 20th century
was about the East Asian Tigers. Hong Kong,
South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, and now China,
Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, and Bangladesh,
have seen extraordinary growth, reductions in
poverty, and improvements in living standards by
pursuing export-oriented growth strategies. The
garment industry, a labour-intensive, low-skill
manufacturing process, served as the first step
on the industrialization and growth escalator for
these countries. Today, as production costs rise
in Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa offers the last frontier
in the search for new apparel sourcing markets.
With a strong apparel tradition, a large and entrepreneurial
workforce, and an attractive business
environment, Kenya is a compelling new sourcing
destination for global brands. However, Kenya also
has a deep well-spring of talent among fashion
designers and small tailors, who can serve both the
global, domestic, and regional markets. This report
is focused on how Kenyan designers and factories
can capitalize on these opportunities.

extensive institutional support mechanisms, public sector participation and elaborate subsidy
