Carr Textile News
Over the last several months, we have been researching new colors to develop for our fabric lines. The earth tone color family has dominated the color palette now for several years.
After doing extensive market research, we discovered that there is a demand for brighter shades. While the earth tones will still continue to be popular, look around and you will start to see more bright shades pop up in all the areas of fashion. Don't be left behind and lose an order because these new colors were not in your line. We have added specific colors to the Chino Twill and Poly/Cotton Twill Lines that we feel will be important going into the next year. New colors as follows:
Chino Twill - Maize, Light Blue, Pink, Gold, Slate, Red, Sage, Taupe, Nutmeg, PFD (Prepare For garment Dye), Natural.
Poly/Cotton Twill - Ivory, Cream, Antique Gold, Buttercup, Sky Blue, Vegas Gold, Cardinal Red. We have also softened our hand standard across the board on our Poly/Cotton Twill Program. The trend in the industry is demanding a softer hand rather than the traditional firmer hand.
These new color cards along with our entire fabric line can be viewed on our website at www.carrtextile.com. We have received many positive comments that our website is an excellent resource for your customer to view all the color selections available. Please take advantage of this resource.
Other notes: Royal Blue Distressed Twill has been discontinued.
Take advantage of our Close Outs on the enclosed list which are a great way to save some money. The Close Out list is updated each month with revised quantities and pricing on our website.
