The textile sector is the cornerstone of Latvian industry, contributing to 4.4% to the country’s GDP.

An integral part of textile production in Latvia is lingerie manufacturing, especially in the seaside city of Liepaja, which hosts more than 50 manufacturers.

France is the only other European country with a higher concentration of lingerie manufacturers.
