BREXIT — the exit of the UK from the EU — could benefit the UK textile and clothing industry, according to a report in the latest issue of Global Apparel Markets from the business information company Textiles Intelligence. One consequence of the UK’s decision to exit the EU has been a fall in the value of sterling and this has made UK textile and clothing exports more competitive in terms of price. At the same time, many UK retailers are considering sourcing more of their requirements from UK suppliers as the fall in the value of sterling has made imports more expensive.
