|Let’s talk about fabrics.
Fabrics are a very big part or your business and your brand’s story. Fabrics are what your products are made of and therefore a huge opportunity for you to differentiate your brand from the competition.
By working with suppliers and mills directly you can make your own special fabrics that don’t exist anywhere else. To learn about fabrics and to find ways to cleverly and strategically use them in your collections is like a guarantee for your brand. Bespoke fabrics take more time to develop than off-the-shelf, but with planning it can be a smart move. Imagine having totally unique materials on the market, that fully tie into your brand core values.

DO YOU NEED SWATCHES?
Of course you do!
SwatchOn is an online fabric supplier from Korea. We stumbled upon them through Premier Vision, and we find them amazing. They help out emerging designers and small businesses with fabric sourcing through their website. To fully feel the selected swatches, they send you them for free. You can order the ones you like. They have no minimum order quantity: You can order from 1 Yard (0.94 m).
We recommend them because we think what they do is incredible and very helpful for you. (We are not an affiliate).
