Most of the factories doesn’t have their own R&D team. They completely depend on customers t-pack and design team, and we are not offering diversified product ranges which need to be improved rather depending on basic products, we have very limited options for fancy yarn in local, we are not very efficient in our product presentation, and only few factories can manage short lead time orders.
