Drops
Stitch-worthy isn't even a concern with this simple scarf. It's something you can whip up in an evening to give to a friend who's downin-the-dumps. The sides are tapered so that the scarf ends meet at center front, where there are closures to secure them. Drops is a great way to try your hand at making bobbles without a huge commitment. This pattern includes a photo tutorial for a bobble.

The company has experienced a modest growth over the last three years. LBS Textiles operates on a 300 node network system running Windows and have 400 people working on them. The firm operates on its homegrown distribution and accounting system that runs on legacy systems. It is assumed LBS Textiles has proprietary fabric designs that are used by the weaving plants to create products, which attract all demographics in the Northeast America. Current Challenges in the market: The following challenges lurking round LBS Textiles manifest threat of existence. The price discounts offered by the weaving plants in China and other countries in the east, are attracting markets towards them causing shutdown of US weaving plants. This is affecting LBS Textiles because the market now tends to buy substitutes directly from the east and its clients are closing down their plants. LBS Textiles is confined to Northeast America and needs to expand to reach out for more weaving plants across the nation and around the globe. People in the company are still working on legacy systems and have no acquaintance with new technologies.

Case Study Steinhouse Knitting Mills (Canada)

...dominated by named brands such as Polo and others and departmental stores and the customers prefer such brands over the lesser-known brands such as Steinhouse. Large retailers such as Walmart, prefer to buy directly in bulk from low wage countries such as Bangladesh, China and others. The US market has a very high potential and trade barriers are not present meaning that the company can sell their products freely in the market. They are also allowed to sell in Europe and sales would depend on their quality, brand and price. Economic The company has seen falling sales and sales have declined from 7.5 million USD in 1968 to 2.7 million USD in 1998 while the US sales alone were 2.4 million USD. From this figure, annual overheads, excluding management salaries would be about 1.2 million USD and there would be a margin of about 7.2 percent as sales commission. It can thus be seen that there is a reduction in the profitability of the company. The market is growing in US were the products can be sold but by using wool yarn of a higher gage . The sales people receive a commission of 7.2 percent on the gross sales that they bring in and travel and other expenses are not reimbursed. About 70% of sweaters are bought by Women for their husbands and boyfriends. All sweaters for the fall line are 70% acrylic and 30 percent wool and this combination contributes 85 % to the annual sales while the spring verities are 50 percent acrylic and cotton.

Textile Dictionary

...______________________________________________________ This Complete Textile Glossary is intended to be a convenient reference for textile terminology. Although it covers all types of textile terms broadly, its special emphasis is on manufactured fibers - what they are, how they are made, and how they are used. The first two editions of this dictionary were published under the title Man-Made Fiber and Textile Dictionary by the former Celanese Corporation to provide a source for employees. A third edition of the dictionary, with expanded listings and illustrations, was offered in response to numerous requests from customers and others in the textile industry for an up-to-date glossary of terms encountered in the manufactured fiber and textile trades. The fourth edition, known as the Dictionary of Fiber and Textile Technology, was produced by Hoechst Celanese Corporation, and included updated coverage of then-recent developments in fiber and textile technology. This current edition has been further updated and expanded to cover recent developments in fiberforming polymers, new commercially manufactured fibers, textile equipment advances, and new applications for textile materials such as geotextiles and advanced composites. New diagrams have been added to illustrate these developments. We have attempted to convey as much basic information as is possible without making the book cumbersome. As in previous editions, generic terms such as dyeing and knitting are handled......

Relationship Between Capital Structure and Ownership Structure: a Comparative Study of Textile and Non Textile Manufacturing Firms

...iiste.org Relationship between Capital Structure and Ownership Structure: A Comparative Study of Textile and Non Textile Manufacturing Firms Muhammad Arslan* M.Phil (Management Sciences) Bahria University Islamabad, Pakistan, PO box 44000, E-8, Islamabad, Pakistan Email: MuhammadArslan73@gmail.com Rashid Zaman M.Phil (Management Sciences), Bahria University Islamabad, Pakistan Email: Rashidzamantanoli@gmail.com Abstract The current study explores the impact of ownership structure on capital structure in textile sector and rest of the manufacturing sectors (non-textile) in Pakistan using regression analysis with fixed effect model. As textile sector is the largest manufacturing sector in Pakistan and having diversified financial characteristics, however, there exists a gap whether textile sector’s ownership and capital structure relationship matches with other manufacturing sectors or not. Current study tries to fill this gap. The results indicate that in textile sector, no significant relationship exists between ownership concentration and capital structure whereas a significant negative relationship is found between these two variables in case of non-textile firms in Pakistan. However, institutional ownership variable was found to be non-significant in both textile and non-textile sectors. Other control variables were found to have the results as hypothesized. Period of study used in this study is 2006-2009 and sample comprises of KSE listed firms. Keywords: Ownership......

Performance of Textile Industry in Industrialisation: a Study with Reference to India

...PERFORMANCE OF TEXTILE INDUSTRY IN INDUSTRIALISATION: A STUDY WITH REFERENCE TO INDIA INTRODUCTION Prosperity of any nation is extremely difficult without industrial development – is a well established truth for all the economies – developing or developed. Economic development and industrialization have became so closely integrated with each other that progress of an economy is now accessed from the success it has achieved in transformation from agricultural set up into a industrial set up. Through industrialization a situation is created whereby many industries are set up rapidly and ultimately backward areas are converted into economically developed areas and backward economies into developed economies. Industrialization, infact is a composite term which involves a number of structural changes such as changes in the production techniques, factor intensities, industrial employment and output. Industrialization is not only a way to increase output or national income but is a means of introducing modern technology and changing ways of life and finally the structure of the economy because of its self-reinforcing quality. But the all above cannot be executed without a well planned industrial policy. The industrial polity provides direction to the pace of industrialization and industrial development. Hence, to industrialize the country, India too, framed industrial policy which was amended, modified and reoriented several times. The First Industrial Policy was framed in......
