Need help sourcing fabrics and trims?
We have a team dedicated to find you exactly what you are looking for. At CDS we have built relationships with suppliers all over the world and have created an in-depth library of resources to source all your material requirements. With this service we discuss your needs, search our sources and supply you with the best wholesale options for your project.
Fabric is generally sourced in 3 different ways, which we have broken out into tiers. Each fabric tier has pros and cons. We will work with you to help you determine which tier is the best option for your production needs.

3 Types of Fabric Tiers
Tier 1- Stock
Fabric that is sitting on a mills shelf waiting to be bought in small quantities
Tier 2- Made to order
Fabric that has already been developed but has larger minimum order requirements
Tier 3- Developed to order
The sky is the limit. Totally custom, doesn’t already exist in the market
WHY we offer this service?
We offer sourcing because we understand the industry lingo and how to deal with fabric vendors. We also think prototyping in your final fabric is the best way to reach the final product sooner.
