HISTORY OF CWT

CWT is the pre-eminent supplier of Fashion Fabric in the global market.

Founded in 1990 to bring cutting edge fashion fabric to clothing manufacturers in Australasia, CWT successfully traded for 24 years before being purchased by Fashion Biz in 2014 . The support of our parent company has given us a new focus on providing the best all round quality and service and is enabling us to introduce our fabrics further afield than ever before. We are also now offering full garment service.

RANGES

We have increased our number of ranges per year to four, introducing new Spring and Autumn ranges for our customers wishing to add more drops in store. These trans-seasonal offerings are complementary to the main Summer and Winter ranges with sampling available earlier.

SOURCING

Our design department travel four times a year to source the latest most desirable fabric on the market, these trips include London, Paris, LA, New York for inspiration and China, Korea and Taiwan to see the latest innovations from the mills.

DEVELOPMENT

Our in-house design department can design and source fabrics especially for our clients. We can develop your own exclusive print design on a variety of fabric bases, both knits and woven. We can offer either digital or screen options for prints. If you are looking for items not available in our range we can put enquiries up to our mills to source on your behalf.

QUALITY CONTROL

All of our suppliers have to go through a vigorous vetting process to make sure they make the grade. We have preferred suppliers with whom we have long-standing relationships. We use the best mills available in each of our product areas and all quality is monitored continuously.

Bulk fabric is inspected before departing their country of origin. We also use an independent testing facility before goods go into the range and have the use of the QC facility at Fashion Biz with its state of the art equipment.

GLOBAL

We started out servicing the Australian and New Zealand industry and now have representation in the UK, USA and Europe. Our agents are very important to us and we only work with the best. This area of our business is undergoing rapid growth.

CWT now has an office in Xiamen to facilitate the logistical global demand.

GARMENTS

Our garment division came into being at the end of 2014. We have a joint venture partnership with an esteemed garment factory in China introduced to us by our parent company Fashion Biz. We are able to offer flexible minimums, great quality and quick turnaround.
