In the latest StitchWorld, find a comparative analysis between Ethiopia and Myanmar – the next two hot and actively pursued manufacturing destinations. Another interesting read is an exclusive walkthrough of Sai-Tex’s state-of-the-art jeans manufacturing facility – the Vietnamese pioneer of jeans manufacturing. Md.

One segment he is targeting is training, which he believes is about repetition more than skills.
