Do you recall making a paper weaving in school? The papers lock together by threading the horizontal strips of paper through every other vertical strip, using an over-under repeating pattern. Modern machinery makes weaving cloth seem "effortless."
Fabric has an allure. Consumers are drawn into various textures, colors, patterns and weaves. However the foundation of fabric is practical- providing us items to wear for protection against the elements or to make our day or night more comfortable. Connecting with consumers within their daily routine is truly the essence of strong promotional campaign. When a marketing campaign fits like a glove to your target markets, the product transcends advertising, becoming-excuse the pun- part of the fabric of your life.
At our recent show we share one of our favorite textile partners. Keep in mind many items are also USA Made!
What types of products do they offer for your next campaign?
