Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) – Mrowka, the designer and distributor of clothes for teenagers from Torun, north-central Poland, has to wait till January, to receive its PLN 400,000 (EUR 104,400) worth of clothes which has been stopped by the duty officers.

The majority of these clothes were sewn in Hong Kong but the producer added ‘made in China’ labels, Piotr Grzebien, Mrowka founder explained.

Because of this, duty officers refused to let the goods leave the border.

The situation deteriorated the situation of Mrowka, which last year had 200 outlets. Another thing was introducing limits in EU for goods imported from China.

We had to shift half of our production to Turkey, which cost PLN 500,000, Piotr Grzebien said.

Today, Mrowka has 9 shops, 3 franchise shops and is present in 100 multi-brand shops. In 2004, it had PLN 30,000 of net income against PLN 5m of sales. This year, it expects losses.

(PLN 1 = EUR 0.261)
