Sourcing Fabric – Part 2

This is good, but not what I was looking for.  It needs to be softer; special.

JANAKPURI, DELHI Today was spent reviewing fabrics the factory sourced based on the requirements I set in our previous meeting.  I was looking for a very specific type of slub cotton until Rajesh introduced me to PIMA COTTON.  He told me it was the finest quality cotton in the world. The threads come from Peru and are woven in India.  As soon as I touched it I knew it had to be a part of the collection.  To differentiate my styles from one another I decided to use different qualities for the different silhouettes.

What I learned: 

  1. Using different qualities for different silhouettes is costly and complicated. 
  2. Dying fabric changes everything about it.  After color dying, the white vs. the black fabric looked and felt completely different (to a trained eye).
