Our dedicated fabric sourcing team is solely focused on developing the latest fabric trends whilst ensuring quality, performance and cost.
We source fabrics from all round the world attending the major textile fairs in Shanghai, Paris, Premiere Vision and Texworld twice yearly. We have an excellent relationship with the textile mills, making visits to Prato in Italy as well as Turkey, undertaking in depth sourcing trips.
From the shows and mill visits, we identify the key fabrics of the season and create trend driven fabric and silhouette boards that offer our customers an array of ideas to complement their collections.
With regularly viewing of fabric ranges, and visiting our customers to discuss the latest fabric directions we consider this a key area of strength for Karpelle.
We are expert at working to customer briefs, sourcing fabrics taking into consideration all aspects from fabric type, performance requirements to price point criteria.
We assure performance by testing through accredited testing houses.
