Textile Talk Blog Dedicated to the
Textile Industry News Article Posted March 22, 2010
From fan pages to photo sharing, from podcasting to micro-blogging, anyone and everyone knows that social media is the way to overcome new challenges and remain in the know when it comes to your industry. One big challenge within the Apparel and Textile Industry in particular is the ability to find and network with new resources, suppliers, and innovators that can meet the needs of smaller to mid-size companies. The fabric Stock Exchange's Textile Talk is the first and only comprehensive on-line community for people and businesses to network together, share information, and keep on top of trends.
Textile Talk offers a central location for industry professionals to read about the latest news and textile developments. The blog covers trends, design, technology and more. Additionally, the resource area of the blog offers a comprehensive dictionary of fibers, fabric types, and color names. Easy to use, Textile Talk is a great way to stay connected and up-to-date. There are also links to industry related products - all available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Alice Wu, co-founder, designer and partner of the womenswear line Feral Childe is already very excited about Textile Talk. "What a great resource! I like the personal style of writing and have already made use of and found the resource and links pages to be very valuable. I look forward to more articles and will definitely be a frequent visitor to the site." She adds " The Textile Talk blog offers me a perspective from people who know and love textiles (and the business of it all!). There are consumer fashion websites, and there are websites for designers such as PatternPeople that focus on prints, or purely business but I think Textile Talk offers a unique B2B angle that is again, personal yet industry oriented."
Apparel, automotive, hospitality, outdoor and eco and sustainable fabrics are all included in the topics to be discussed. More than just the voice of the fabric Stock Exchange, this blog allows readers to become guest editors and share their own insight and opinions by submitting their posts themselves; whether it's a written article or simply an image or video.
According to owner and industry expert, Sheryl Sapriel, "The fabric Stock Exchange's Textile Talk is a visually exciting and interesting blog about fabric that is informative, educational and fun." Blog Updates will also be posted on the company's Facebook, Twitter and Linked-in pages.
