    Abstract: Objective – This paper aims to analyze Supply Chain Risk (SC Risk) and Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) in the Islamic fashion Industry in Bandung, with a particular focus on micro and small enterprises. Moreover, this paper will demonstrate the differences between the way the micro and small enterprises view SC Risk and SCRM. Methodology/Technique – This research uses questionnaires to obtain the data. The population in this study consists of 86 firms representing the center of the hijab fashion industry in BALTOS, Bandung. The data was obtained through observation and in-depth interviews with selected micro and small enterprises in the Islamic fashion industry, as well as the distribution of questionnaires from the hijab fashion industry in BALTOS. Findings – The results of this study raise concerns relating to SC Risk and the SCRM among micro and small enterprises in the Islamic fashion industry in BALTOS. The findings demonstrate that most Muslims consider that certain market conditions involve high levels of risks, which act as a threat to their businesses. Novelty – The global and dynamic evolution of the global market has contributed to increased levels of intense competition in various markets. The analysis of Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) strategies, to minimize the frequency of Supply Chain (SC) risk, is therefore important.
