42 KEY SKIRT APPAREL SOURCING STATISTICS, ALL IN ONE INFOGRAPHIC

By Andrew Leighton | 30 April 2019

The Kilt is a ceremonial piece of tartan fabric, traditionally worn like a skirt by Scottish males, including the Scottish military. On the big screen they’ve been worn by Samuel L Jackson, Mel Gibson, George Clooney, Liam Neeson (who certainly has the particular set of skills required to wear one) and even 007 himself, James Bond.

Yet interestingly, although the ever-impressive kilt does continue to make waves in 21st century fashion, the current export value of its more popular stablemate - skirts, from Bangladesh, China, India, Turkey and Vietnam carried an even more impressive value of US$2.1bn in 2018 - falling by just US$6.7m since 2014.

This makes skirts the least falling garment category within the export of formalwear/casualwear, an ever-present and popular fashion item, and a key category to understand if you are in the apparel trade.

Which is why we’ve put together a free infographic containing a tiny snapshot of the trade agreement and tariff data available for skirts within re:source. Use this infographic to help understand how the world sources and how to use this information to your advantage.

BTW - Did you know that Tartan was invented in China? You do now.
