Having specified and designed your fabric we can then supply you with a range of small sample swatches to choose from. Also sampling sufficient to make a garment may be provided or a small production run for evaluation before full production. Mills have their own policies on how they can assist but there is usually a try before you buy system available.
In specifying a colour, the general procedure is for the client to offer a colour swatch or a colour reference (for example a pantone colour reference) we can then provide a Lab Dip including a shade up and a shade down on the desired fabric for your approval before production starts. This is also the case with Prints where we will offer a strike off of the requested design for your approval. We can either print using conventional printing methods or printing using digital technology on polyester fabrics. For yarn dyed pattern fabrics we can offer hand loom samples.
Each stage is designed as a quality control system to give you your required finished product. This is a standard streamlined system designed to protect you, the client and the Mill.
