There are two major trends (Need for Value and Environmentally Sustainable Products) that we have noticed. MDS Fabrics paid attention to the growing demand for these trends and created programs and products working with the help of our customers. MDS fabrics has increased marketing initiatives that are based on relationship marketing concepts by adding social media, one-on-one networking using trade shows, personalized e-mail marketing. The marketing mantra at MDS is 'One to One’-Treat each customer as if they are the only one we have.  We used a co creation model where customer’s ideas have been converted into products to create our Winter 2009Collection.These will be displayed for the first time during the December ITMA Showtime.

Value

Customers on the higher end are seeking fabrics online pokieslike crewels, velvets and silks that are more ornate. Customers on the lower end are seeking fabrics that provide good value for the money. Our marketing initiatives have been of tremendous value in helping MDS fabrics understand the need for value priced products that are readily available. Designers, Manufacturers and the industry in genera l suffering from out of stock items with very long wait times and unsustainable prices when they are competing with ready-made and readily available products that are gaining in quality.  To help with this, MDS fabrics has introduced a program of 150 SKU's that are fully stocked and value priced to serve the designers and their customers.

Currently designers and customers feel that the fabrics and other raw materials used in creating a beautiful window treatment are not priced to appeal to the value conscious customers.
