28790: Demare (reply) Re: 28457: (news) Chamberlain: Haiti's garment industry seeks relief (fwd)

From: mimi demare <mimi_demare@yahoo.ca>

i was interested to see what this was about, having heard about a once active indigenous "garment industry" that supplied the needs of haitian people (including shoes)--which industry has been all but destroyed by the dumping of used clothes from the united states (and elsewhere?). i thought, ah! something about that the remainder of that industry. disappointing to realize that what is being referred to (all right--forgive my innocence here) is making cheap t-shirts for the u.s. market.

is there any activity in a more homegrown clothing industry, that anyone knows of?
