How to buy a bamboo textiles brand
New Zealanders who visit Auckland’s CBD might think they are shopping for a new favourite fashion item.
But they might not be looking at the local bamboos and other locally sourced materials.
The bambooes are a staple in Auckland’s city centre and in the country as a whole.
They are produced by a group of small growers who grow the bamboo and sell it to shops.
The company, Empire Textiles, makes its bamboo fabric in the city, and has been growing and selling it in New Zealand for more than 20 years.
The bamboo is cut from the trunk of a tree that grows on the edge of the city.
It is made into clothing, shoes, hats and accessories.
In New Zealand, the company sells bamboo textile fabrics for about $60-$70 a kilogram.
But it’s more than just a new fashion trend.
The products are also a source of income for the farmers and a source for some of the workers.
In the past year, Empire has increased its profits from about $1.5 million in 2015 to $4.5 to $5 million, Mr Morrison said.
But the company is now facing a potential tax bill of up to $50 million.
Mr Morrison said Empire was also struggling to keep up with growing demand.
“It’s quite an expensive business, and I think we’ve got to be careful because we’re in the middle of an economic downturn,” he said.
“We’re trying to keep our margins down.”
In the next six months, the tax bill will be reviewed, Mr Morriss said.
He said it was unlikely that Imperial would be able to meet that bill.
The city’s growing demandFor some of its workers, the impact of the downturn has been devastating.
Some of them have been on unemployment and poverty, while others have struggled to make ends meet.
And while they have the luxury of buying a range of clothing brands, many people are finding it difficult to buy the bamboozles and other local products they need to survive.
The problem has been exacerbated by a lack of cash.
“The bamboo is really, really expensive and you have to work really hard and really hard to get the right pieces, so that you can afford to buy those things,” Mr Morrison explained.
“That’s a problem for a lot of people.”
In addition to the tax, Mr Abbott said Imperial was facing a significant cost to the city of Auckland.
“There are some serious issues with the way the city is run and the way it’s managed, and we’ve had to spend a lot more money,” he explained.
The City of Auckland is currently looking at what to do about the city’s $3 billion debt.
