South and Southeast Asia, which are home to the world’s garment manufacturing powerhouses, experience some of the highest annual rainfall globally. When sourcing from this region, anti-mold practices are a necessity, as mold can occur at any stage of production and shipping, easily resulting in 100% product loss unless effectively combated.
