Until now, 2007 figures represented Nicaragua's peak in textile and apparel exports, with US$222.15 million in value and 66.7 million SMEs in volume.

Items such as knitted nightgown pajamas, jackets and sleepwear, cotton dresses, baby clothing, skirts and pants, shirts, blouses, cotton trousers and undergarments have demonstrated the highest growth rates during the first quarter of 2011.
