ABSTRACT
Business is getting better, even if not full of energy, and questionable in terms of sustainability. But decorative fabrics suppliers are increasingly upbeat about some or all of their distribution channels in terms of sales recovery. Among the various distribution channels, Liebenow sees contract as looking super, but it's new for them so they are taking market share. The December pre-shopping at the mill, prior to next month's showtime has been strong across all channels, and many patterns have been taken off sale for specific markets. At Craftex company, business is getting stronger, said Jack Eger, vice president. Specific customer programs are spurring an upturn in business for Chris Stone, said Mark Aizawa, president.
