Price Talk - Cotton

In March of 2011 we posted about the dramatic increase in the cost of Cotton.

Here's what's been happening in more recent times since the price peak at USD$229.67 in March, 2011 which was the biggest fluctuation in the last 30 years.

Cotton pricing has returned to pre-spike levels, but is on the way up again - albeit much slower this time.

We'll keep you updated as things change.

Stop the Music

Every now & again you need to stop everything & see where you are & where you want to be.

Around here, we call it the "STOP THE MUSIC" meeting.

Exactly like musical chairs - when the music stops, you need to see where you & where you want to be.

3 times a year we'll have a Stop The Music Meeting to be sure we're doing the right thing by everyone.

And I mean everyone... our Customers, our Suppliers & Ourselves (both personally & professionally).

We've got our Mission Statement to keep us on course.

What do you do to make sure you're on the right path?
