Fabric Supplier - SUZHOU, CHINA
About This Supplier:
Our second fabric supplying mill is located in Suzhou, which is the famous Silk city in China. Operating since 1999, this factory employs over 860 dedicated workers. The factory uses an integrated form of weaving, dyeing, and finishing in house. This factory has gained the environment qualification according to ISO 14001 standard.
The Materials We used:
We proudly use locally made and locally dyed Silk from the birthplace of the fiber: China. We share in the vibrant history of Silk that dates back to over 6000 years ago.
Our dedicated mills are experts in developing Silk fabric. We use the special Silk and modal fabric for our Spring collection, and the heavyweight Silk Crepe de Chine for the Fall. In spite of its delicate appearance, our silk is remarkably robust and its smooth surface resists soil and odors well.
The mill's Tencel Jersey Knit fabric is the fundamental fabric of our Tencel tees. The silky soft Tencel fabric has a flattering drape and is breathable, wrinkle-resistant, and environmentally sustainable.
