Finding Serious Factories, etc.
So I'm currently working part-time for a fashion company in Asia, but I have close to no experience in this industry, so there's a lot I need to learn but sadly I can't ask my co-workers for help.

Here's my Q: How do you find leather manufacturers/factories in Europe without going to a leather fair or having a good network in Europe? (I'm European myself but am currently living in Asia.) I've been googling all morning (which is what my boss suggested I do) but can't find anything that seems serious. Is it an industry secret or what? How do these things work?

Excuse me for my extreme ignorance. I want to improve and learn.

I've been searching around the Fashion Spot but couldn't find what I was looking for, I'm sorry if something similar has already been posted and questions answered, I've been looking but maybe I didn't do it right.

Thank you!

Here are a couple of other related threads ... not so much about your specific question or about leather, so not sure it will help. But they are about production and manufacturing in general .... China vs. the west, how it works, etc. Thinking there might be some little tidbit in there that might give you some direction about how to start researching.

BetteT, thank you! I was looking through those topics yesterday but couldn't really find what I'm searching for. Interesting read though, will look through it again and continue searching. Thanks!

embroidery resources
Hi,

My apologies if this has been posted but I just cannot seem to find any information on embroidery resources for new designers.
I am working on my line and live in the new york area. However, most of the embroidery shops I have frequented here all sell the same run of the mill/cheap embroidery. There is a very limited selection.
I'm looking for embroidery that can be used on a contemporary line or maybe a person specializing in embroidery. I have already posted on a few job websites and have not had much luck.

I believe most people source from thrift stores. Used clothes are also packaged and sold in bulk, but I assume you would want to choose pieces individually ...

Have never researched it I have read about individual vendors buying in bulk in the third world, but I don't know much about it.

Italian mills and clothing manufacturers
Hi everyone

I'm starting my own brand and I need some information.

Who knows of any reputable wool or cotton mills in Italy - except for the obvious Zegna.

Also, who is familiar with reputable manufacturers: who other brands use to have their cloths manufacturered?
