“It’s Coming Home”

The conditions of the confrontation that arose between the global powers exposed the vulnerability and dependence of each on the deep mutual integration of production. Locating production in regions with cheap labor no longer seems like a good idea. Popular riots accompanied by destruction of high-tech industries with expensive equipment, high costs of creating conditions for the location of such production, logistics of consumables in a pandemic and the amount of greenhouse gas emissions for the delivery of each ton of material, national egoism and attempts at one of the most significant in the world production of the country in creating their own monetary policy, all this and other factors lead to confusion and the need to revise the vector of further development. Most likely, the export of technological equipment from the country of the “world factory”, which we are observing, is a positive process as a new spiral in the development of clothing production. The history of the first production in Europe (Italy, Britain, the Netherlands) of the 16th century with the first manufactories where manual labor was used must be repeated. Sewing production with modern technological equipment is still an industry where manual labor is important, which will make it possible to re-evaluate their capabilities and their destiny for a part of the millions of refugees and illegal migrants who have lost themselves and their own inner feelings to the European Union, to give them the opportunity to become creative participants in new development. If we strive for real sustainable clothing, then the closest to the standards of such production are the locations where there is access or the nearest prospect of renewable energy. We are witnessing the enormous attention of the European Union to the development of renewable energy and ambitious plans to achieve zero emissions by 2050, where the internal culture and consciousness gradually comes to accept the philosophy of secular asceticism.
