Obviously, a large question I'm sure, but what were the main reasons the factory in Ethiopia didn't work out? The country is actually making pretty concerted efforts to industrialize (tax incentives, industrial parks, etc) and in recent years more fashion players have moved in (J Crew, H&M). It was even recently heralded as one of the more promising countries from a labor cost perspective for manufacturing.

Was the political/economic climate of Ethiopia a driving force, or larger issues with the business model?
