All around the world, several sectors have felt the shockwaves of the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The clothing industry is one of the sectors that took a hard hit. The global COVID-19 pandemic affected the sector on every level, from big retailers to private label clothing manufacturing companies. Clothing production has decreased around the world, and both large corporations and many private label apparel manufacturer faced tremendous challenges. Chinese, Bangladeshi, and several other Asian manufacturers are the ones most affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
As one of the world’s biggest ones, the Turkish clothing industry had to endure serious drawbacks, too. Around 80% of the clothing and textile manufacturing in Turkey stopped during the first months of the pandemic. However, since the first wave of the pandemic reached an end in June, the industry started to stand on its feet again, making a powerful comeback. The reason behind Turkey’s increasing importance in the global apparel industry is highly linked with the Chinese clothing industry’s decline. Turkey is representing itself as one of the potential hubs for clothing production. For example, at the beginning of March, Turkish many private label apparel manufacturer companies and textile makers experienced a spike in orders. But, during April and May 2020, they had to halt the production to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since June, the Turkish private label clothing manufacturing industry is getting stronger.
Even before the pandemic, Turkey has been one of the world's largest suppliers and 3rd biggest supplier to the EU. Turkey has several advantages that make it one of the biggest private label clothing manufacturers globally, such as its close and strong relations with European clothing brands, cotton manufacturing, human resources, the use of advanced technologies in manufacturing, and so on. DORA Giyim embodies all the necessary properties to be one of the pioneers in Turkish private label clothing manufacturing.
