According to data from Ecuador’s Central Bank (BCE), the country went from exporting 26,000 tonne of textiles worth $103.8 million in 2019 to 28,400 tonne worth $104.4 million in 2019. This reflects a 9 percent rise in volume and a 1% increase in revenue.

Higher demand for abacáfibre (used to make textiles and paper) and specialty items such as face masks, according to AITE, may explain the slight rise.
