Entrepreneurs can find the right product and workforce. The marketplace will make goods sales easier and help unemployed workers find jobs.

The garment industry has flourished in Bangladesh. The main components of which are cloth and yarn. So the demand for cloth and yarn is gradually increasing. Many unscrupulous traders are taking advantage of this widespread demand.

‘Fabric Lagbe’ will reduce manipulation and help make garments products through multiple uses of fabrics.

“The mobile app is being launched for the first time in the country with the facility of cheap and hassle-free supply and receipt of products and services used in the textile and readymade garments industries. Entrepreneurs will get access to textile and garment products and services through this platform,” Abu Bakar Siddik, senior executive Fabric Lagbe Limited, told The Business Post.

He said that this service would initially be provided free of cost. Later, commissions will be charged for selling goods and other services. Buyers and sellers will negotiate prices through the platform. The seller will deliver the goods on time as per the order and receive payment directly from the buyer.

Bakar said those who make yarn and cloth often don’t get fair prices because they cannot find the right buyers. On the other hand, buyers take a long time to find the right sellers or manufacturers.
