"Uncle Sam" is Happy to Wear Clothes Made in Indonesia PDF Print E-mail

It turns out that there have been a lot of people in the United States (US) or who are often called Uncle Sam like to wear clothes made in Indonesia. Such as denim clothes, suits, casual, batik and others made from cotton.

 

 

From the recognition of a number of textile / garment factory owners, more than 60 percent of textile products and their derivatives are exported abroad with the main goal of the United States. In Central Java, textile and garment factories that export apparel to the US include: Sritex, Dan Liris, Tyfountex, Tantra, Apacinti, and Argo Pantes.

 

The high export of Indonesian textile products to the US also seems to be seen from RI's remuneration to the US. Because, about 90 percent of national textile raw materials in the form of cotton or cotton (cotton) imported from the US.

 

According to CCI Indonesia Representative Andy Do, Indonesia's cotton imports account for around 35 percent of US total cotton production. The cotton imports were valued at approximately 600 million US dollars.

 

According to him, actually some countries in Asia and Latin America are also known to be cotton producers, but the quality of cotton is not as good as US. In Indonesia, the textile industry is quite not able to produce its own cotton with good quality because the land is not suitable or not suitable for planting.

 

It is said, the availability of cotton in the US is quite a lot. Many countries import cotton from the US, besides Indonesia. And the US is also able to meet sustainability.

 

PT Apac Inti Corpora Carel Director Christanto Machmaud and PT Argo Pantes Fabric Sales Manager Ratih Kurniasari said, there are many reasons why Americans like to wear Indonesian clothing made from cotton. First, said Ratih, because cotton clothes are light and comfortable to wear.

 

Second, the quality is good and if it is washed it is not easily damaged. Later, people in the United States like to wear batik clothes made from cotton, and even become a trend for some local people.

 

 

 

 

"Paman Sam" Senang Pakai Baju Buatan Indonesia

 

 

 

 

Ternyata sudah lama banyak orang Amerika Serikat (AS) atau yang sering disebut Paman Sam senang memakai pakaian buatan Indonesia. Seperti baju denim, jas, kasual, batik dan lainnya berbahan baku katun.

 

Dari pengakuan sejumlah pemilik pabrik tekstil/ garmen, lebih dari 60 persen produk tekstil dan turunannya diekspor ke luar negeri dengan tujuan utama AS. Di Jateng, pabrik tekstil dan garmen yang melakukan ekspor pakaian jadi ke AS antara lain: Sritex, Dan Liris, Tyfountex, Tantra, Apacinti, dan Argo Pantes.

 

Tingginya ekspor TPT Indonesia ke AS tampaknya juga bisa dilihat dari balas jasa RI ke AS. Pasalnya, sekitar 90 persen bahan baku tekstil nasional berupa kapas atau katun (cotton) diimpor dari AS.

 

Menurut Program Representative CCI Indonesia Andy Do, impor kapas Indonesia sekitar 35 persen dari total produksi kapas AS. Impor kapas itu senilai lebih kurang 600 juta dolar AS.

 

Menurut dia, sebenarnya beberapa negara di Asia dan Amerika Latin juga dikenal penghasil kapas, namun kualitas kapasnya tidak sebagus AS. Di Indonesia cukup banyak industri tekstil tidak bisa memproduksi kapas sendiri dengan kualitas bagus lantaran lahannya tidak cocok atau tidak sesuai ditanami.

 

Dikatakan, ketersediaan kapas di AS cukup banyak. Banyak negara megimpor kapas dari AS, selain Indonesia. Dan AS pun mampu memenuhi secara keberlanjutan.

 

Director PT Apac Inti Corpora Carel Christanto Machmaud dan Fabric Sales Manager PT Argo Pantes Ratih Kurniasari mengatakan, banyak alasan kenapa orang AS senang mamakai pakaian Indonesia yang berbahan baku katun. Pertama, kata Ratih, karena pakaian katun itu ringan dan enak dipakai.

 

Kedua, kualitasnya baik dan kalau dicuci tidak mudah rusak. Belakangan, orang-orang Amerika Serikat senang memakai baju batik berbahan katun, bahkan menjadi tren bagi sebagian masyarakat setempat.
