Garment factories cut production downtime Qiantang River tide prestigious, until now, Jianggan District retained the two Fort Sanbao the until Jiubao such place names, "Castle" is the the ancient tide comes to communication. Now, from the five Fort to Qibao, workshops garment factory has become concentrated. BIAN Jian Yong the Qibao runs a small clothing factory. October of this year, they plant has been suspended for five days, the workers of the factory yard also reduced from 15 to 7, the past 24 hours overnight overtime is gone. The reason of lay-off is no longer stocking wholesalers, clothing sold in the past, wholesalers hands to maintain a certain inventory to avoid stock, their orders will flow freely.
Now clothes are no longer marketable, they will lose a lot of wholesalers stocking. They sold a good time, even the remaining rags processing clothes has been received, 3 cents a pound, now piles of scrap heap in the factory yard, take up a lot of places. BIAN Jian Yong said, with respect to the garment factory, the cuffs plant business more bleak, because the mouth style points, if the style had gas even more difficulty in marketing. Jinxin Luo mouth plant, the reporter went to the next manager Mr. Wu told reporters that the so-called cuffs, neckline, cuffs and hem and garment accessories. Their business this year than last year fell by half, almost did not start in the first half. In previous years, this case has already begun production of spring, this year, winter is yet to start doing.
Large enterprises are also facing similar problems. October 22, at the 19th China Yiwu International Commodities Fair (hereinafter referred to as the Fair), the textile area on the second floor was deserted, Langsha Socks booth, only customers in twos and threes. The staff said, last year Yiwu Fair, LANGSHA, Socks booth are the customers door staff busy this year, but it is very deserted.

Spread to surrounding industry Garment industry the downturn affected are on the other segments of the downstream. Yiwu Ming Wing Line Co., Ltd. operates a variety of sewing thread, manager Li Long-ho told reporters that this year their sales are down by a third. Years later, the the downstream garment enterprises procurement has been hovering at the bottom, has yet to see signs of a rebound. Limited business manager of Zhejiang Jiangxin Hong zipper Lu Xiaoyan, said this year they zippers are also selling well.
Costs up a lot, but the product prices but did not dare, for fear of loss of customers already meager. In previous years, order scheduling, however, the delivery generally have to wait until the next two months after a single. Tao Yang sewing equipment agent for many brands of sewing machines, manager Zhong Shui said, their peak season in June and December each year, is the most light when the business of the garment factory, garment factory because then have time to update the purchase. And this year, the peak season has not in previous years, the off-season business, the longest even three months did not sell a machine.
Zhejiang Eagle Sewing Equipment Co., Ltd., sales manager Jia Hui also said that their year's sales were down 4 percent. Zhejiang Province Green Alliance, an environmental organization, long been concerned about the pollution of the textile industry. Zhengyuan Ying, the Director-General of this organization, he told reporters, because many textile enterprises in Zhejiang Province, in previous years, bleaching and dyeing cloth wastewater pollution is very serious. This year is much better able to "see the blue sky and white clouds. The reason is that the textile industry downturn, a large area of factory downtime, no pollution. Internal and external Chinese textile enterprises are under unprecedented pressure. BIAN Jian Yong told reporters, when seasonal apparel demand up. In previous years, in October the weather turns cold, people have started purchasing autumn garment factory will also usher in the busiest time. This year, the Hangzhou temperature has been higher, the clothes will no longer marketable. The information cotton yarn Zhuochuang analyst from 1970s not entirely agree with the "Weather said, he believes that the economic downturn, is the root cause of the textile industry downturn. "Weiqiao Textile Zhang Hongxia reflect, this year, cotton price difference is relatively large, domestic cotton prices higher than the international market price of about 5,000 yuan / ton, caused by the rising cost of domestic products, exports less competitive. In this regard, the National Development and Reform Commission has taken some measures to come back the the farmers hands of cotton to increase national reserves while releasing part of imports, which helps to reduce the burden of the textile industry. On the other hand, the textile industry is a labor-intensive industry, in recent years, domestic labor costs has repeatedly upgrade the textile industry affected greatly. BIAN Jian Yong said, they handyman monthly salary here, three years ago, or 600 million, has now risen to $ 3,000, even so, or not hire. Rising costs on the one hand, weak demand is greater reason. Since the 2008 financial crisis, the slow recovery of the U.S. economy, the European debt crisis remain unresolved, between China and Japan this year because of the Diaoyu Islands issue, big fight a trade war, the United States, European Union, Japan, Chinese textile exports to the three mainstream market they demand less exports and the impact on the natural. Terms of domestic demand, the economic situation is not good, a lot of industries are down, holiday, the people of lower income levels and purchasing power will not be so strong.
Clothing unlike food as belonging to the necessities, the decrease in revenue, and can also reduce the frequency of changing clothes, the original one-year change, a change to two years now. By convention, the annual garment factory began a holiday in January BIAN Jian Yong said. But this year, the hands did not live, and he intends to give workers a holiday in November. Chen Ping said, a year after the Spring Festival, Hangzhou Evergreen Garment Wholesale Market renew concentrated period of the booth, if business is not improvement in the market after the Spring Festival next year may usher in a wave retired shop tide.
