What happens when you want to do wholesale?
From the BBC News website.
From the BBC: Wholesale fabric wholesale license has been a long-held dream of textile traders, but it is now more than a dream.
It has now become a reality thanks to the launch of the first UK-based wholesale fabric wholesale company.
Wholesale License is one of the UK’s first wholesale fabric licensees to be launched in the last few months.
Wholesaler Adam Burdon, the CEO of Wholesaler License, said: “The ability to have wholesale fabric in the UK has always been a dream, and now it has finally become a possibility.”
Wholesalers across the UK have been very happy with the license we are offering them, and we are now able to provide the fabric in a range of sizes, colors and fabrics.
“Whole-cloth licensing deals are typically between £200,000 and £300,000 ($320,000 to $350,000).
The first wholesale licensees have been chosen from a pool of applicants.
Wholesallers can choose to have their products delivered in-house, or have their orders shipped overseas.
Wholesaler License will now also be offering a full range of custom orders, which are tailored to each fabric supplier and can include colour, size, weave and texture.
The company will be working with local fabric suppliers, fabric retailers and wholesalers to tailor the deals, so the fabric is delivered in the correct size, weight and style.
“This can take a long time.””
The biggest challenge with wholesale licensing is that there is no guarantee that the fabric will be used by the correct textile suppliers, so it is very important that the fabrics are used to the right textile manufacturers and that they are properly certified,” said Adam Biddon.
“This can take a long time.”
We are also working with the UK Department for International Development and the Government’s new Fabric Innovation Programme to develop the best practices for fabric licensing in the country.
“Wholesaling licences have been available since the 1970s, but they were introduced as part of a government-wide plan to support local manufacturers in the textile industry.
Whipping orders are delivered directly to fabric retailers, who then supply the fabric to fabric wholesaler Licence, who can then send the fabric out for sale to consumers.
Licence will then have to sell the fabric through their website, where buyers can order their own fabric at a discounted price.
Wholecloth licensing has been available to fabric manufacturers in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Brazil and the UK.
Licence is one step closer to opening up wholesale to the general public.
It is currently legal to use the wholesale license in the United States, but there are still strict requirements in many other countries.
Currently, licensed fabric must be certified for 100% wool, 100% cotton, 100 percent rayon, 100%, polyester and rayon-polyester blends.
Licences for the European Union are still being developed, but Biddons said they were aiming to launch licenses in Australia and New Zealand this year.
