Textile manufacturing industry question
I went out of town over Christmas and found myself in a fabric store (!) where I found small bolts of fabric that were 30 inches wide. They had apparently been cut off a larger bolt because one end was cut rather than woven. I can’t imagine why this would be. Do clothing manufacturers buy only certain widths and therefor this was cut down with the larger part going to the manufacturer and the remainder going to a fabric store or is there another explanation for this? I had never seen this type of thing before and I’m really curious.
