Buying fabric as a new designer or business owner can be challenging if you don't know the ins and outs of sourcing fabric from suppliers. Fret not, here are some quick tips to get you started:
There are plenty of ways to can source wholesale fabric. If you are a beginner, you have these options to start with:
— Google is a quick and easy way to get started searching for wholesale fabric suppliers near you. A simple query like "buy wholesale fabric" should returns hundreds if not thousands of results for you to choose from.
Keep in mind, however, that these suppliers recommended are not vetted so it's up to you to do the homework and sniff out the genuine suppliers from the scams.
— If you're trying to source fabric at the lowest cost possible and can afford to order larger quantities, you might want to consider going straight to the source (i.e the manufacturer). If you order enough quantity you can always negotiate better deals to improve overall cost.
However, a manufacturer's contact may be hard to obtain if you do not know where to look for. Plus, most manufacturers would prefer to deal with sellers who have a reputation of selling large quantities, so keep that in mind.
— Supplier directories, like SaleHoo, vet their suppliers/manufacturers. This means you won't need to worry about finding high-quality suppliers or getting scammed. You would also get all details about them: including the years they have been in operations, contacts, shipping information, product catalog etc.
While there is a small fee ($67/year for SaleHoo), it's the best method for beginners. We even give you our market research tool, which shows you how often items sell and helps you find new products to add to your store!
To avoid scams and find true wholesalers, follow this 4-step verification process
— Never order from a wholesaler without talking to them on the phone. For added insurance, Google their address and make sure it’s not a house or PO box (or a fake).
— Only do business with suppliers with a long history (10+ years) in business. Call their past customers to get honest reviews of their service.
— Order a sample before making a bulk purchase. Inspect them for product quality, proper packaging, and fast shipping speeds.
— Call a new supplier with questions as often as you can. If their support sucks, it will hurt your own customer service as well.
We research various marketplaces to provide you insider information about product's sell rate — how likely is the product going to sell, so you don’t have to second guess.
Contact one of our 87 vetted wholesale fabric suppliers and choose the best one for your needs. You can get started with them right away!
