How to Buy Fabric Wholesale

Whether planning a big home improvement project or constructing matching costumes for your local theater group, buying fabric wholesale is a popular practice for saving money on large amounts of fabric.

Fabric Types and Sizes

  • Wholesale fabric is sold in bolts that range from 15 to 20 yards, although some companies sell bolts as large as 100 yards. Woven and knits are usually 45 or 60 inches wide, though sometimes quilting fabric is sold as 36 inches wide. When buying wholesale it is important to check the fabric for the same qualities you check when shopping in smaller qualities: crispness, drape, color and stretch.

Online Suppliers

  • The easiest way to find wholesale fabric is to do an online search for stores that carry them. When working with online suppliers, you have a wide choice of fabrics and easy delivery options. Upholstery fabrics are particularly popular on these Internet shops. Request fabric swatches (small sample squares) before ordering entire bolts, because computer monitors are inconsistent in representing color.

Shopping the Garment District

  • Manhattan’s Garment District offers many wholesale fabric buying options. Wholesale fabric stores line 37th and 38th Streets between 5th and 8th Avenue. The selection varies, but most stores feature a good choice of knit and woven apparel fabric. Go into the garment district with specific ideas and speak directly with a sales associate when possible. Otherwise, these stores can be overwhelming with their long rows of fabric.

“Have the perfect fabric in mind and go searching for it, go to fabric vendors and see what’s available. This means finding vendors that offer minimums that work for your brand. Once you see what’s available in your price range at quantities you can handle, you can begin. I suggest you design your collection around what fabrics  you know you can actually get” commented the president of Grupo Denim Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal.

Men have a great influence on women who judge their style, so they consider this when trying to decide what is the best outfit to go out on a date, with friends or to go to work, so we will make this task easier by letting you know what women prefer when they see a man’s outfit. 

“It is important to give a little extra time on the outfit we assemble every day in order to look nice,  that will give a good impression wherever you go, making the other persons around you notice you do care about your appearance”, said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim. 

Of course, everyone is free to choose what to wear, but if you want to give a good impression to women, you might want to consider the following. 

Confidence – We do not only talk about walking, standing and talking confidently, but what you wear proudly will also make a significant difference, dressing well will make you feel well, and trust me, women will notice it.

Jeans – If you wear jeans to impress, you need to invest to achieve this, bad quality jeans or the wrong fit or size might give make you look like your outfit is completely out of style, but finding the perfect pair of jeans of a great quality will say to her that you care, so choose your jeans carefully. 

“Being nicely dressed will reflect confidence that others will notice, you can make a big difference and a good impression by just wearing an outfit that has been carefully selected”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.

Closer Collaboration with Suppliers

Benefits of Closer Collaboration with Suppliers

Delivering benefits from closer collaboration between suppliers and customers can not only strengthen the links between them so that the relationship between the supplier and the customer is one of mutual trust, but it can also deliver tangible benefits of efficiency.

Here’s our top benefits for closer supplier collaboration.

Best Practice Shared: Collaboration results in best practice being shared throughout the supply chain. All those within the supply chain are aware of what is required. There is a real understanding of what the goods supplied will be used for and what causes problems within the supply chain.

Fewer defects: The sharing of best practice also results in improvements being made on a continuous basis, thereby reducing the instances of waste or poor value. 

Improved communication: Communication is a direct result of closer collaboration with suppliers. For them to be aware of the requirements that the customer has, there has to be communication.

Suppliers get to have a voice: The collaborative approach requires communication to be two way, with suppliers being able to report any problems to the customer and hopefully they can then work together to ensure that these are eliminated.

Continuity of supply: The process of managing supply chain risk improved because the supplier is able to plan effectively for the future.

Improved stability: Stability within the supply chain cannot be overestimated. Any supply chain that is unstable will have stock outs, will have an inability to meet sudden peaks in demand and ultimately will not provide a good service to the customer.

Flexibility: The closer the collaboration between suppliers and customers ensures that the supply chain can meet any peaks or troughs in demand. 

Reduction in costs: The reduction of defects and the time saved within the supply chain means that the supplier is able to lower the costs of goods supplied, which is a benefit to the customer but also helps the supplier to keep afloat and stay competitive.

A mutually beneficial relationship: Whereas in the past, the relationship was between supplier and customer was adversarial and the supplier was often seen as being wholly dispensable.

An optimistic future: The final benefit of closer collaboration with suppliers has to be the potential for expansion and new opportunities that are presented when the supplier and the customer find that working collaboratively makes them a very strong team.

“Companies that collaborate effectively across the supply chain have enjoyed dramatic reductions in inventories and costs, together with improvements in speed, service levels, and customer satisfaction” added Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.

It is true that the right hem on the jeans will make a significant difference on the appearance, so it is quite importance to know which is the right hem depending on the style of jeans you use, so this time we will help you with this task. 

“A correct hem of a pair of jeans will mean a difference on the way you wear them, so it is important not to wear them too long that the hem will be stained or worn, or not too short that they do not look well”, thinks Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, about this topic. 

Here it’s an example of the right hems per some types of jeans we commonly wear: 

Wide leg jeans – The longer these types of jeans are, the better they will look, but that does not mean you have to drag them every time you walk. The hems should be as closer to the floor as possible, look at a full-length mirror and make sure the long of the legs is never short, as this will not look good at all. Remember, all bell-bottomed jeans should be on the long side.

Skinny pants – Skinny jeans are probably the most popular ones nowadays, it is easy to know if you are wearing the right length on the hem as the openings on the ankle are narrower. Your skinny jeans should finish slightly below the ankle bones, the same rule applies on jeggings and leggings.

Cropped and Capri jeans – There is not an specific length for these jeans, as it depends on how short you want them, as long as they are not above the knees, anything that helps you flattering your legs will work. 

“Jeans are easy to modify, if they are too long, you can cut them and sew them at home, but if you do not have experience on this area, a tailor cannot only alter the jeans, but can also advise which is the best hem for your jeans”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.

How to trust in ourselves

trust ourselvesHow to trust in ourselves, always

Trust- To rely on the actions of another person or something.

Learning how to trust

  1. – Persons that are successful are usually persons that believe on themselves, persons that value their talent and not what the people think about them.
  • These persons don’t believe they are better than the others because that’s arrogance.
  • They keep a balance between their strengths and weaknesses.
  1. – Why do we lose the trust?
  • Because there are a lot of reasons but most of the time because of a loss
  • Job
  • Loved one
  • Friendship
  • Money problems

Because we also are kind of weak on our self esteem. This is caused we still believe that bad things should not happen to good people, that these are awards or punishments ; therefore, if the result is not good is because I’m not good enough, and we didn’t deserve what we wanted.

  1. – To lose a beloved one

When we lose a beloved one, a part of us dies too. It’s been said that a part of your heart stops working and then we stop to care about us. This is translated to we stop to think and plan our goals, postpone our dreams, cancel plans and to have fun.

Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal as a successful businessman explained that we all face all kind of problems at some point in our life but we need to keep on going on. “All the people can let us down or abandoned us, but the biggest betrayal would be to abandon ourselves. We deserve what we have and we have all the power to continue fighting for our dreams; therefore, we cannot give us permission to not trust in ourselves , said Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.

 

Leadership Language

Leadership Language

Leadership Language: Why Your Word Choices Matter

Common wisdom about leadership often favors “leading by example,” so you might not think too much about the way your team interprets what you say. But the truth is, the words and phrases you use can have a very real impact on your team’s morale and productivity.

It’s through our words that we communicate our intentions. They are the main tools that we have for sharing our vision with our teams.

Every employee is different and therefore will respond best to different types of motivational language. It’s important to plan your words and phrases to ensure that you connect with your employees in a meaningful way.

The most impactful leaders are the ones who think about how they will energize their people, they know what makes their people feel confident and likewise what drains their energy. Rather than talking about plans or tactical objectives, they are able to link their employees’ current circumstances with some kind of opportunity or outcome that they will care about.

Look your colleagues in the eye and ask them how they are, really listen to the answers, and tell them regularly what you are grateful for in their work and why.

To this end, it’s helpful to include employees in the ongoing conversation about the company’s mission, and how their work aligns with it, so check in on progress through a regularly scheduled, preferably face-to-face meeting, to align on progress and build trust, iIf you’re doing that at appropriate intervals, you’ll have the confidence that the right things are being worked on, that issues are addressed before they become problems.

“Using encouraging but knowledgeable language helps to implement objectives and key results at all levels in our organization” added the president of Grupo Denim Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal.
