Sector: Apparel and Textiles
The apparel & textiles subsector consists of the Apparel, Accessories & Footwear industry.
The Apparel, Accessories & Footwear industry includes companies involved in the design, manufacturing, wholesaling, and retailing of various products, including men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing, handbags, jewelry, watches, and footwear. Products are largely manufactured by vendors in emerging markets, thereby allowing companies in the industry to primarily focus on design, wholesaling, marketing, supply chain management, and retail activities.
Investing in local businesses which manufacture disposable or washable face masks will create an efficient supply of PPEs for daily use and for health workers, reducing the risk of contagion during pandemics.
