As an outcome of the confusion caused by the coup in Egypt, and the fires that emerged from the textile factories in Bangladesh, European Purchasing have changed their routes to Turkey. Thousands of orders were trusted to Turkey.
The military coup that overthrew Muhammad Morsi in Egypt most heavily effected textile workers. The European purchasing groups that had chosen Egypt due to cheap production due to recent confusion have changed routes to Turkey. Another reason why the order count from Turkey has risen is the fires that emerged in factories in Bangladesh due to inadequate safety measures.
