Indo-Fab Price Slash

Fibre2Fashion is reporting that a glut of India/Pakistan/Bangladesh denim fabrics has led to 10% a price deflation. Mills like Arvind, Raymond, and Century have increased production capacities this year.

To those not in the piece goods biz- when capacity has increased mills must run close to it to achieve efficiency. Demand for those goods so far has not met the supply. That is how we see the 10% price decrease across the board.

Since I don't deal with mills from that region on a daily basis I cannot attest to the numbers.
