The Ethiopian Textiles and Fashion Portal is a gateway to Textile and Apparel sector information relevant to development of Ethiopian Textile and Apparel Sector designed, developed and Implemented by Infinity Consultancy PLC. Infinity consulting PLC was instituted by textile and garment professionals in September 2016 with the prime purpose of transforming the Ethiopian Textile, apparel and fashion business landscape. We witness that rapid changes are taking place in manufacturing, merchandizing and organizational partnership. When we compare global production and marketing patterns with the adaptive capacity of our institutions (higher education, TVET colleges, private training centers) and enterprises (textile factories, garment factories, fashion studios), associations (ETGAMA, FDA, ECPGEA, ETAPA) and other stakeholders. It is apparently evident that Ethiopia as a nation has fallen far back the global practices, especially in its ability to develop and implement web platforms.
In this view, infinity consulting plc. had made a point to develop and implement an interactive web platform which brings together on one spot various actors in the business of textiles, apparel, accessories suppliers, dye stuff and chemical suppliers, governmental institutions, associations, academic institutions, development partners, professionals and other stakeholders with the purpose of increasing interaction and facilitate mutual collaboration and partnerships. It also aims at empowering researchers, merchandizers, outsourcing companies, sourcing agents and higher education institutions to get access to instant and up-to-date information regarding the sector in one stop.
The portal includes such vital features as e-learning, forums, survey, investment, jobs, institutions menu, associations menu, service providers menu, accessory and chemicals suppliers menu, and sub-portals for each textile and garment factory. All the available websites in the sector will be dynamically linked to the main portal to make every information accessible from one spot.
