People trust clothes made in Georgia

Rezonansi writes that few people know that in so-called marketplaces - bazrobas - and shops the clothes sold are made in Georgia. Those who do know this do not hide the fact that they like locally produced clothes and say that they are better quality than the clothes from Turkey or China. Some say that because of financial problems they cannot even go to the shops and mainly their shopping destination is second hand stores.

Recently the ACT marketing research centre carried out polling whose goal was to find out what part of population wears clothes made in Georgia and how they like them. The research showed that Georgian made clothes are popular in society.
