Textile and garments

Lesotho’s garment industry produces approximately 90 million knitted garments a year. It is estimated that Lesotho consumes between 22 000 and 26 000 metric tons of knitted fabric per year. A wide range of (mainly cotton) knitted garments is produced from single/double jersey, pique, interlock and rib fabrics. A number of factories are now beginning to produce fleece knitwear made from synthetics. An opportunity exists for establishment of higher value added garments as well as for establishment of knit mills to support the local garment industry.
