Since 2015, UNIDO's experts on product development and pattern-making have been helping the Armenian textile industry realize its great potential. The brand, 5900 BC, is co-designed by Armenian and Italian designers and exclusively produced by Armenian companies.
5900 BC has presented three collections at national and international exhibitions and is currently preparing a fourth collection for Spring/Summer 2017.
UNIDO's intervention has helped Armenian textile companies to gain access to international markets, and thereby create jobs and boost exports. The success of the brand has sparked the interest of large Russian retail chains, and their involvement could bring about a long-lasting and fruitful cooperation for the sustainable growth of the textile and clothing sector in Armenia.
