Sourcing tends to be the most surprising step in the CDS 4-Step Academy. Fabric makes a huge difference in the quality and function of your garment which is why it is such and important part of the process.
Often, leading brands like Nike and Adidas have their fabrics developed specifically for their products. That can be very expensive and is usually not an option for product developers just starting out. So we help you find the fabrics through our directory of wholesale vendors that will be the closest fit for your design and goals.
