There are not many ways to beat China. But here is how we can win for now. China has to focus on profits and that is its strength and also its weakness. China is therefore only interested in products which is can turn on a dime at the lowest possible cost. Nothing about authentic African clothes allows this. China will not waste time doing hand embroidery. Also China has no authenticity credentials. Hence why Italian suits will always appeal to the fashion conscious. You just cannot wear a Chinese suit, no matter how nice it is, or a Chinese watch and hold status like if it was Swiss. The same is true for African products where made and owned by Africans carries value and prestige. Unfortunately not all of us understand this. But authentic is the word that keeps companies like us in business--because this culture is our birthright and that can never be sold.
