The article presents information on the offshore business. The author, can't think of a business as volatile in its changing aspects as the home textiles industry, but a highly successful savant in a closely related decorative fabrics business pointed out a few things to the author that are totally relevant to this business. But one of the key issues with off-shore production is how to plan based on customers' forecasts. Then the author discussed China, and what he refers to as lemmings who are flocking without understanding, nor a taste for chop suey or chow mein. The Asian impact will continue, and that Americans still can forge specific niche positions in home furnishings.
