Wholesalers say that crepe, georgette, tulle, chiffon and net, employed by main apparel retail chains, vogue designers and boutiques, come from China as very well. Chinese cloth is desired by retailers and designers mainly because of its high-quality and price tag. “We set stock really worth Rs40-50 lakh on maintain from China and have presently informed our customers that we may possibly not satisfy their needs.
