Nagsun Apparel was established in 1981 with a view to supplying garments to the local Fiji market. The company originally manufactured only woven shirts using a total of eight machines, and now specializes in the manufacture of swimwear, merino wool wear, fit wear, school uniforms and causal knitted wear. A short period of rapid growth saw Nagsun Apparel become the largest supplier of garments to the Fiji market in 1984, with staff levels reaching 150 by the end of that year. Growth spurred the company to begin exporting its products to both New Zealand and Australia under the SPARTECA agreement, while the European Union opened up that market from January 2008 by declaring all garments imported into the EU 100% duty free. All garments manufactured by Nagsun Apparel are 100% made in Fiji by Fijians.
