Hi Mary,

I'm a fashion designer & consultant working with global clients especially helping start up labels from concept to completion. Currently I'm helping a Non Profit Organization,a rural women enterprise in North India to market their products in apparels  with 35 types of hand embroidery and hand made jewelery made from wooden beads, glass beads, shell and ceramic beads. We are looking for bulk buyers/wholesalers and retailers for our products. Can you point me towards any leads ? You can contact me at fuel4fashion@gmail.com. Thanks so much !

Regards,

Supriya

Hi Mary,

 

Thanks for taking a peek at my newly created profile.  I remember Panchachuli from the October Forum in London, and your message prompted me to have another look at your website to see the work that you are doing... fantastic!

 

I truly hope that my new label Solsista grows quickly and is able to incorporate some of the fantastic fabrics and accessories that Panchachuli produce and do our little bit to support such a fantastic initiative.

 

Keep me posted on any news.  And I'll be sure to get in touch when we're established and buying.

 

Regards

 

Regine

Hi Mary,

So sorry it's taken me forever to reply but I haven't been on here since I set it up - busy working my socks off!!!

The fabrics and story behind them are fantastic. I currently use a supplier from India as well and love the fact it is traced directly back to the villages and that it keeps vital and important textile skills live.

Please keep in touch as it would be great to use you as a supplier in the future both for myself and other designers I work with.

Kind regards,

Rachel

Hi Mary, thanks for this. The fabrics look beautiful & certainly in line with my thoughts.
Would you be able to give widths, prices & usual delivery times please? And would i be right in thinking the colours are standard, due to the vegetables etc used to dye? Is there any way of seeing / feeling the fabrics? Thanks. Rebecca

Hello Mary,

Been a while since I've had a chance to chat. I had a long look at Panchachuli's website a while back and I was really impressed. I wonder: Do they retail the yarn itself? I would be very interested in replacing my current supplier, and find an ethical supplier, once we settle in Cambodia in January.
Let me know at your convenience.

Mary - thank you for your message. Your fabrics look great, and I will keep them in mind. The brand is going to be sporting/casual - but if there's an opportunity to use something like this, I will definitely be in touch.

Thanks for your interest.

Best -
Martin
