The Garment and Textiles Cluster Initiatives (GATCI), a group of professional tailors and dressmakers in the African nation, has launched a new brand of ‘Made in Ghana’ cotton boxer shorts. The product uses African prints and fabric and is much more comfortable in tropical weather compared to imported ones made of polyester and nylon.
GATCI works under the Cluster Development Programme (CDP) of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research – Science and Technology Research Institute (CSIR-STEPRI). The CDP brings together government agencies, research institutions and entrepreneurs to work towards the growth of small and medium-scale industries.
Deputy minister of trade and industry Robert Ahomka-Lindsay and deputy minister of gender, children and social protection Gifty Twum-Ampofo recently launched the brand. They offer boxer shorts for both men and women to the people of Ghana.
