3. Stocks and choosing fabrics!

There are 2 main types of fabrics and stocks:

  • Factory stocks with regular fabrics. That means plain and printed fabrics directly from producers. They are usually bought in large amounts starting from 10-30 meters per design.
  • Designer outlet fabrics. These are fabrics left from collections of the top Italian and Italian produced designers from Dolce&Gabbana and Prada to Rick Owens and Missoni. The most trendy fabrics of the season, but often in limited availability and one of a kind.

4. Payment and shipping.

You can pay directly to the stocks and choose your own shipping company. Or we can help you to proxy the payments and choose the shipping provider. Also we control shipments and all conflict issues (wrong fabric shipped, damaged, etc).

Typical volumes we are working with start from 10 000 EUR.
