Within the last few weeks we've received emails from almost every vendor about the need to increase prices due to several factors. Here are a few examples:
Cotton prices have risen by roughly 40% over the past 6 months. Combine this with ongoing transportation shortages, and the cost of supplying fabric has sharply increased.
This past year has seen significant changes in the way the whole world does business. Inbound freight from Japan and Korea has doubled, labor across the board has increased significantly, and hefty mill cost increases of over 5%. The effect of all these extra charges from the mill and the aforementioned problems is why we are forced to have a price increase.
What does this mean? It means shops and customers will see an increase in prices. We'll do our best to keep prices as low as possible while following the MSRP guidelines set up by our wholesalers.
All new fabrics arriving will have new prices AND the Fat Quarter price will increase April 1st.
