A Wholesale Fabric Featured Customer
Gillian Valentine is a growing lifestyle brand that features artists from around the world on sleepwear, home-goods, and decor. They offer ready-made and made-to-order products with a commitment to reducing waste and upcycling leftover materials. Here at Little Cocalico we are proud to provide wholesale fabric printing services for the team at Gillian Valentine.
In the Fall of 2021, our fabric printer manufacturer, Kornit Digital, recommended that Gillian Grant, the owner of Gillian Valentine, contact us about providing wholesale fabric for her growing business. She was interested in finding a reliable fabric provider that offered both organic and American-milled fabrics and that would be able to work closely with her team to provide premium fabrics with their artist’s designs.
Supplying organic and American-milled fabrics with a personal touch is what we pride ourselves in. So, of course, we were a great fit and have really enjoyed working closely with the team at Gillian Valentine to supply them with top-natch fabrics for their exclusive products.
We asked the team at Gillian Valentine to answer some questions for us about their experience with Little Cocalico as a wholesale fabric provider. Here’s what they had to say.
What fabric bases do you use from Little Cocalico?
What Type of Products Are You Making from Our Fabrics?
Pajama Pants, Nightshirts, Shorts, and Satin Pillowcases. All of our products feature original artwork from women around the world.
What Were the Factors that Made You Choose Little Cocalico for Your Custom Fabric Provider?
We were looking for a printer that had access to American milled materials that were also organic (for the cottons). The other deciding factor was that we wanted a printer that was a true partner with us and that we could support each others goals as we grow. Working with Jon has been a truly collaborative experience. He is invested in creating a quality product.
Tell Us About Your Experience With Little Cocalico’s Wholesale Fabric Program?
We like the more personal approach. Part of our business is client relationship and we would like the same from our vendors. Knowing that Jon and his team understand our business goals and are committed to a quality product gives us one less thing to worry about.
The process to print is straightforward and while LCC may not have the rendering tools to scale designs on their site, Jon has come up with some good workarounds.
Also, printing out to the edge of the material saves us a lot of money! Some printers leave a 3 inch selvage edge on each side which results in us needing more material. Considerations like this is what distinguishes LCC.
