Abstract:

Italian products of the textile and apparel industry are known worldwide. This sector has attracted a great deal of attention because it is rare for a wealthy and developed country to specialise heavily in fashion-oriented as well as semi-customised industrial products and base its production system on small and very small companies. The aim of this paper is to present the current situation and future challenges of the Italian textile and apparel sector. The paper is divided into three parts: The first one describes the international and domestic position of the T&A sector, the second – the key characteristics of the T&A sector in Italy, and the third outlines consumer-supplier relations in this sector.

Tags: Italian industry, textile industry, apparel industry.
