The article focuses on business in China which is radically different from doing textile business in the United States. There is the question of quality in terms of color accuracy, finishing and performance. A major mill executive reported being expelled from a Chinese dye house because his company insisted on their shade of red in the trial sample, to be told they would get the right color in production. While some of the more basic finishing processes are currently available, the finessing of finishes made into a singular advantage by a few American suppliers has not yet been achieved.
