I personally dislike the stage of fabric sourcing. While I still enjoy visiting the fairs and seeing all the magnificent fabric, I cannot help feeling ennoyed when comes the time to sort everyting out. There are so many supplier requirements to deal with. So I ended up building a dedicated database like the ones I audited in the listed companies I used to work for, so that I could register and classify all my clients’ suppliers.
I wanted to share this article because it is very helpful. It summarizes all the criteria I put in my database.
A must read!
