Abstract

The textiles, leather, clothing and footwear sector (TLCF) encompasses a wide variety of industries producing a heterogeneous collection of products. It is not within the scope of this brief to analyse in detail such a complex mix of industries. Therefore the purpose of this brief is to describe the performance of the sector as a whole, within the context of the Scottish economy and to discuss the observed trends in the main economic variables outlined below. It should be noted that a study of the data available for the TLCF sector reveals numerous inconsistencies and deficiencies.
