This week, Ireland is celebrating its 150th birthday.
It is the first country to achieve that milestone since the Industrial Revolution and is home to some of the world’s biggest and most renowned textile industry.
Here are the five biggest industries in Ireland: 1.
Irregularly-made clothing The country’s biggest industry is also the country’s most unpredictable.
In the past, it has produced clothing for brands including Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Abercrombie & Fitch, H&M and Calvin Klein.
Its clothing has been copied in a range of different countries, including Brazil, Italy, Germany and the UK.
Some clothing is also made in Ireland but not always by the country, and some of that is sourced in countries like Japan and the US.
The country has a strict labour law, and companies that make clothes in Ireland are subject to penalties of up to 5% of their global turnover, according to a recent report by the Irish Chamber of Commerce.
The Irish government has said it has set up a special unit to monitor clothing exports from Ireland and will launch a “dramatic increase” in inspections and enforcement of rules.
Paper-making and packaging A key sector for the textile industry in Ireland is paper-making.
Ireland’s biggest paper company is the National Paper and Paper Products Corporation (NNPPC), which employs 1,500 people in the country.
The company has been running a business in the UK for more than a century, and is a subsidiary of NNPPC which also supplies paper to the European Union.
Its paper products have a range from kitchen paper to toilet paper, while its products for other sectors include carpeting, textiles and footwear.
Leather goods The country also has a significant leather industry.
In 2016, it exported over 7,000 metric tonnes of leather goods, which was nearly 20% of all leather goods exported from the country to the EU, according the Irish Times.
Ireland is also a major producer of handbags, which is where the country gets most of its leather goods.
The leather industry is a relatively small one, and there is only a handful of leather producers in Ireland, but the industry is worth around $10bn to the country annually.
Paper and packaging in the textile sector The country is also famous for its paper industry, with a variety of companies producing the product.
The industry employs over 6,000 people in Ireland and employs about 20,000 workers worldwide, according an industry association.
The most prominent paper company in Ireland at the moment is the NNP PC, which employs more than 4,000 staff and exports about 5,000 tonnes of paper annually.
It’s worth over $2.5bn to Ireland annually, according a recent survey by the International Paper Association.
Apparel and textile products in the apparel industry There are many other textile products made in the Irish textile sector, which includes bags, jackets, shirts and even baby clothes.
The biggest apparel producer in Ireland currently is the Independent Paper and Fabrics, which supplies clothing and accessories to brands such as Dior, Gucci, Nike and Levi’s.
The business employs nearly 1,300 people in Dublin and employs more people in other parts of Ireland.
The textile industry has been growing rapidly since the industrial revolution, but there are concerns that it is becoming too dependent on a handful or even a handful and not enough on new technologies.
The future of the textile economy is uncertain, as is the countrys reliance on exports of textiles to countries that have traditionally relied on imports.
