Summary of news published since Week 12-2016

 jpa4Sibil220THE DECISION of British retail giant Marks & Spencer to include burkinis in its assortment of swimwear reflects two significant facts. The first is that the number of Muslim women in the UK has caused this market segment to merit the attention of a major distributor. This suggests that brands and distributors in other countries that have a large Muslim population might also consider offering appropriate swimwear. The second is that a growing number of Muslim women are prepared not only to go to the beach but also to go in the water. This is important because it signals the evolution of a trend that could well spread from Europe to Muslim countries throughout the world, creating a huge new market for swimwear and swimwear fabrics. Clearly, this market will take years to develop but it promises excellent opportunities for all players in the beachwear supply chain.
