On the Road, Reviewing Fabric Lines

The merchandising team from 3 Day Blinds hit the road this week to look at new fabric collections from our suppliers, along with new styles for the updated custom drapery, soft roman shade, top treatment, valance and decorative hardware collections that we will introduce later this year.

We loved what we saw!  Fresh colors and color combinations, including muted color palettes, fresh blues, combinations of darker colors, and new twists on the classic color combinations.  Patterns included bold stripes, large florals, tropicals, modern geometrics, fun novelties and traditional jacquards.  The challenge will be to edit these thousands of beautiful fabrics into a smaller collection.

We also toured factories to look at the latest technology for making these products.  The new innovations we saw improve the quality, the productivity through manufacturing and inventory management. 

It is great to get out of the office once in awhile and to see custom window treatments actually being made, whether it is in the 3 Day Blinds factory, or through one of our suppliers.
