The South African textile industry is mature and has been through countless business cycles. It is estimated that the clothing, textiles, footwear and leather industry accounts for 14% of employment across all manufacturers in South Africa. It is also the second largest contributor to tax revenue and accounts for 8% of the South Africa's GDP.
Johannesburg remains South Africa's commercial capital. The bulk of the sector's manufacturing however takes place in Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. The Western Cape is known for its high fashion orientation, while KwaZulu-Natal tend to focus on mass market production. Johannesburg is well placed as a distribution hub for locally manufactured products and imported goods.
