Commenting on the recent article, the Los Angeles based fabrics manufacturer notes that clothing manufacturers need not resort to patent trolling to succeed in the fabrics distribution industry.

XL Fabrics has a variety of fabrics at the ready to meet the needs of any clothing designers.

The firm notes that its number one priority is providing their customers with unique and trending fabrics at affordable wholesale prices.

According to an article published October 7th on Fortune, the fabric manufacturing and wholesale industry has in recent years been overwhelmed by a large number of copyright lawsuits that many observers are labeling as blatant “patent trolling.” Described as a way to increase company income by pursuing copyright settlements that they may or may not be entitled to, patent trolling appears to be commonplace across many industries where one competitor’s product may be similar to another. According to XL Fabrics, it is much better for a company to distinguish itself by creating benefits for their customers, rather than barriers for their competitors. The firm notes that its number one priority is providing their customers with unique and trending fabrics at affordable wholesale prices.

  • Unique Options – The reason that there are so many patent disputes in the fabric industry, XL Fabrics explains, is because there is tremendous pressure within the industry to keep up with all of the latest fashion trends, and carry the fabrics that are currently most-sought after by clothing manufacturers. While it may be tempting for lesser companies to "borrow" existing designs in pursuit of this goal, XL Fabrics explains that their designers are sure to hit on what is most appreciated about each trend fabric, while differentiating it in a way that provides clothing makers with a unique and creative option.
  • Wholesale Price Points – While quality is likely the top priority for the artistic minds behind the latest and greatest fashion boutiques, the accounting departments in all of these top companies also appreciate when they can get these fabrics at prices that are generous to their margins. XL Fabrics explains that their over a decade of experience in making fabrics in the Los Angeles area has taught them how to streamline operations without cutting quality. They say that this is what allows them to deliver top-quality products to their valued clients.

XL Fabric concludes by stating that, when companies are able to deliver their customers a high-quality product at a price point more on par with lower quality alternatives, there is no need to rely on frivolous lawsuits to keep their company afloat. With a large selection of fabrics spanning many different designs, colors, textures, and materials, XL Fabrics is a natural landing place for any new or established clothing company looking to get a leg-up on the competition.
