The Philippines is one of the most populous countries in the world, but it also has the most shirts in a market that’s growing at an astonishing rate.
In a country that doesn’t produce enough of the garments used for clothing and other consumer goods, people want to have a variety of different shirts to suit their needs.
But some brands are making the difficult choice of going with the most expensive and often made of the best materials.
The Philippines has seen an explosion in shirt-making, with new brands appearing every year.
And some are making it tough for those that aren’t as lucky to get the best deals.
One of those is Kaws.
Its popular shirt fabric is called Lattes, and it’s one of a handful of fabrics that is actually made from bamboo.
The other two are Mokot and Gino.
But Kaws isn’t just about making shirts.
Its a business too, and one that takes a lot of capital and talent.
The company has offices in Hong Kong and Singapore, but Kaws’ focus is on manufacturing its own clothes in the country, in particular its shirts.
It’s a difficult job, but the company is thriving.
According to the company’s annual report, the company shipped $3.3 billion worth of merchandise in 2015.
In 2015, it produced 7,000 shirts.
In 2016, it shipped 1,000.
And in 2017, it will ship 2,000.
“I know what I do, I can do it,” says Latte CEO Lito Lomeli.
“I can do this.”
The company started as a small company in 2000, but has grown to become a global brand.
It is the only company in the Philippine market to have its headquarters in Hongkong.
But Lattetis success has come at a cost.
Its clothing is made in India and the United States, where the quality of the shirts is much lower than in the countries where the company makes them.
“It’s really hard, and I think it’s going to be a lot more expensive for them to get our product here,” Latteli says.
“But I want to do this to be able to do what I want.”
The shirts Lattets shirts come in are made in three different ways: the original Lattel fabric, which is a lightweight, soft cotton with a cotton-like texture; the Mokotte fabric, a thicker, stiff cotton that is less durable than the Lattels; and the Gino fabric, made from the same cotton but with a more elastic feel.
Lattellis shirts can be made in any number of colors, and the fabric is sold in a variety that can be tailored to fit each individual’s tastes.
“When we do shirts, we want to give them a touch of uniqueness,” says CEO Lomeli.
“It’s very personal.
And that’s why I want them to be special.”
When Lattells shirt is shipped, it is packed in cardboard boxes with a rubber tag that says “Made in India.”
The boxes are sent to factories in India.
“We make shirts from bamboo,” says Gino’s CEO, Vincenzo Barone.
“The bamboo fibers are used in everything.
We make the shirts from the bamboo and then we ship them to factories.”
Barone says he wants to create a “global brand” that will make shirts that are “different” for every customer.
That’s why he and Lattela have developed the company into a multinational company that has the ability to manufacture in different countries.
“I want to create this global brand that has different things that are unique to each country,” he says.
Latteles shirts are produced in India by an Indian company called Kaws, which makes the Moko fabric and the Moks.
Lopela is also the brand name of a brand of shirt fabrics, and that is what the company sells.
Barone says the company uses the same bamboo-like cotton as the LATTELS shirts.
The company has factories in Malaysia and Vietnam, where it has a manufacturing center.
It also has factories that make shirts in Brazil and India.
But Barone and Lopeles chief financial officer, Raul Guirola, say the company doesn’t use any of these factories because they are too expensive.
“What we want is to make a quality product, and we have to spend a lot to get there,” says Guirala.
“We can’t go to any factories and buy a piece of bamboo from one factory.”
The factories that do produce the shirts are very expensive.
For the Latelles shirts, they cost about $500 per shirt.
And the cost of the bamboo, which are usually imported from India, is around $40,000 per kilogram.
And there is a $1,000 fee for every shirt.
“The shirts that we sell are made by us in the United Kingdom, in India, in China
