FABRIC SOURCING

We are connected to the most reliable and trustworthy fabric vendors and mills, who are both emerging fashion brand-friendly and offer lower minimums, so you will never have to spend countless hours trying to locate and secure them. When you work with us for your fabric sourcing needs, you will also gain access to our insider resources, including the same fabric mills used by the top names in fashion, including Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs, and more.

THE DETAILS

Once we get all the important details we need to source your materials, our founder will tap into her insider resources to source you the best fabrics and trims in the market!
 
She will provide you with a comprehensive and in-depth fabric sourcing report with options covering not only the fabrics you asked for, but often times, additional fabric options that are new and exciting or have interesting advanced technologies.
