COMING BACK? Capability and Precarity in UK Textiles and Apparel

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This report considers the prospects for the UK textiles and apparel sector at a time when, as the current Green Paper on Industrial Strategy demonstrates, there is growing interest in whether a renewed industrial policy can help to rebalance the economy. In this context, the report addresses the question of how to understand the potential and limits of re-shoring and rebuilding a textile and apparel industry which is sustainable, because it pays decent wages and offers owners a moderate reward.
