Hello,

2. Advantages
3. Informal sector
4. Local textile industry

You name it and Iam interested in any comments that people may have. You can e-mail me as well at secondhan@hotmail.com.

is it for your thesis or market research?

But any way, there are three things

1. Cheap
2. Quality
3. Fits

There is PNG clothing made. Does anyone know about this?

We can and should put down second hand clothing because it makes us look more like beggars than when we wore clean traditional dress.

At the same time, we need to talk alternatives. And there are alternatives. There are "Made in PNG" button shirts available in POM for example.

More examples, please?????

1. WOO Textiles behind Boroko Motors (Waigani Dr)
2. Another Indian owned textile company in an adjacent area
3. Another cloths factory is located in Gordons (next to M.I rest-a-car office)

Unfortunately they are woned by Asians - no PNG owned compny is involved in producing new clothes. Locals are involved as outposts of Aussie dump sites - secondhand klos, secondhand shoe, secondhand cap, secondhand eyeglass, secondhand watch - whatelse, PNG people becoming "secondhand citizens"??

If you don't want second hand stuff then we will send it to africa. At least they will appreciate it until a time comes when they can afford new things. This will happen when a strong economy with high employment exists.

second-hand clothes are high demand in PNG simple because it is affordable by the average and even village people who need clothes.

THos made by WOO textiles and others are good by simply expensive for the villager who wants to wear something. Nogat bai stap a$$ nating or wearing ol clothes blon tumuna (..going back LOL!!)..

I am very surprised at the cost of second hand in PNG. It is almost as much to buy a pair of boys shorts second hand in Moresby as to buy them new in Australia. Someone is making a very good profit on them.......wonder who.
