The business is currently producing under capacity. Other textile companies
like KTM, Urafiki Textiles, xakhani and Nida Textiles are importing raw
materials from abroad due to unreliable availability domestically. This proves
a tremendous availability of customers for Ihembe Textiles products. Since
most of the gray fabric produced locally does not satisfy the market, textile
companies rely on imported yarn. Ihembe is focused to offer yarn at the
required quantity to these businesses.
