What if you could simply print out your ideas?? Having a great idea is only a small piece of the puzzle to successfully building a product that sells - you must weave innovation and problem solving into every aspect of your business - ESPECIALLY the fabric.

A lot of brilliant ideas we come across are you using cheap useless fabrics to build their products because their DREAM FABRIC doesn't exist or is very difficult to source. That doesn't mean you can just give up on it and fall back on sh*t.
