Fabric sourcing workshop with Dave Mason26 October 2017
On average, raw materials make up 30% of South African clothing firms’ cost of sales. As the domestic textile industry has contracted, developing effective methods to adequately source fabric, both domestically and abroad, has become a key competitive advantage for domestic firms. David Mason is an expert in the textiles industry and has extensive experience in assisting clothing manufacturers in developing a variety of textile sourcing and handling solutions.
David discussed the key considerations a business should make when sourcing fabric, the role that strategic relationships with suppliers plays and methods to ensure that fabric suppliers adhere to superior quality standards.
