A Georgian medical textile company produced 40,000 medical gowns in one week, after purchasing 12 additional sewing machines with support from the EU project ‘Clusters 4 Development’.

With a total of 18 sewing machines, the company can now meet the high demand for surgical gowns in Georgia, and actively support the fight against the COVID-19 outbreak. 

 ‘Clusters 4 Development’ is funded by the EU and the German government. It supports the development of business clusters in three sectors: apparel, construction materials and tourism.

The project also collaborates with the Georgian government to improve the institutional framework for cluster and business development. The project is implemented under the ‘EU4Business’ initiative.
