Sustainable fabrics and knitting yarns

We work with a network of certified suppliers (mainly from Italy and the EU) sourcing a wide range of products suitable for every fashion product.

When setting up a new style or collection development, materials research comes first; after receiving samples – if available – we have two options:

SELECTION: After checking our archives for suitable materials, we ask the fabric/knitting yarn manufacturer to directly ship out swatches and shade cards to our Client’s office.

RESEARCH: When our archives didn’t come in handy, or upon specific Client’s research, we run custom research through our network for a product that meets the requirements. We collect swatches and shade cards, make the first selection, and make inquiries about price, MOQ, deliveries, etc. and then we ship the selected range to the Client for his final picks.

COUTURECTS provides both services above, our sister company focused on fashion product development consultancy.
