Most people take into account the appearance of the garments that they purchase, as appearance is important to them. However, small designers offering high quality garments are pushed out of the market in place of lower quality, ready-to-wear garments. An analysis of the textile supply chain is done to unearth the specific problems the designers face. Designers on average reported their suppliers as mediocre.
