Recently, Indonesia has been enlivened by the news of Citayam Fashion Week (CFW). Street fashion which is enlivened by young people from Bogor is a form of creativity in showing their identity. Interestingly, this street fashion idea has spread to other cities such as Semarang, Madiun, and Medan.The majority of this fashion week is filled with youth from lower-middle families. Their hope is to enliven street fashion and at the same time earn money from being interviewed. But is there also hope for textile businesses with increased fashion awareness? Previously we had to know the textile business and its derivatives.

 

The fast fashion industry has an impact on the environment. Furthermore, the fast fashion industry has caused 92 million tons of textile waste annually and is predicted to reach 134 million tons by 2030. Not only that, fast fashion also contributes about 10% of global emissions, and 20% pollutes water. According to the United Nations Charter on Climate Action, the industry statement states that textile companies are committed to achieving zero emissions by 2050 in an effort to tackle climate change.

Imports of textiles and textile products (TPT) worry business actors because they continue to flood the domestic market. Based on data from the Central Statistics Agency (BPS), the largest fabric imports during 2021 came from China, the value was almost half of the total domestic imports, which reached 48.87%. The second position is South Korea 12.99 percent, Vietnam 9.98 percent, Hong Kong 9.45 percent, Taiwan 7.03 percent, and Malaysia 5.58 percent. Entrepreneurs said that this condition could not be separated from the intervention of importers.
