It is hard to see Bolivian companies succeeding, let alone “surviving” under harsh circumstances that global market economy and/or internal Bolivian conditions impose to our brave entrepreneurs. Today I have to congratulate Textilon, a Bolivian industry with more than 40 years of work. La Prensa reports:
Fashion. Hand in hand with innovation and upgrading, Textilon presented at the fair of the Chamber of Exporters, held at the Hotel Plaza, fashionable new designs for women and men. Articles for all tastes and made of the conjunction of different types of fabric, Textilon bet this time for a new design based on La Paz “cholita” [women from the highlands of La Paz and parts of Oruro, mostly of Aymara origin, who wear a special outfit which is characteristic fo the woman since colony times] which is exported to Denmark. Besides being very elegant and comfortable, they look flirty and are made of lycra. For men, they have designed an extensive range of socks, colors and materials such as alpaca. Since the alpaca fiber is a very noble, much more durable, warm and hypoallergenic. This is a line from last year’s which has diversified greatly, counting today with models of baby alpaca silk, alpaca and cotton, alpaca and lycra, etc.
Expanding to neighboring country: Peru. It currently has two branches in Peru, two in Arequipa and Lima; and projections to expand to Cusco, Tacna and Puno. [places where Aymara people live]
“We are the number one manufacturer of socks, with over 23 stores nationwide.”
Kudos for Textilon, to its owners and workers, you make us proud! I wore your socks and all females in my family have used your products for over twenty years, I have to say your quality is impeccable!
