5 Simple Answers to Your Fabric Questions

by Annie 7. October 2015 10:32

Let’s take a minute to answer some of the questions we most often hear at MMI!

1.      What is the lead time?

Wouldn’t it be great if we could give you an easy answer? The truth is that lead times do vary tremendously depending on what you need to get. We know that a lead time can be crucial to the buying process, so we always do our best to make the process as quick and seamless as possible.

2.       Do you own your own dye houses?

 The easy answer to this one is no. MMI has been hugely successful for decades doing what we do best. We have established and strong relationships with dye houses across the globe that make your life easier when it comes to ordering fabric.

3.       What is the minimum?

 It varies! Depending on the fabric and the details of the fabric, your minimums will change. Don’t forget to call and ask us about what we have on special or our current closeouts!

4.       Are we able to spread out shipments on custom fabrics?

 You bet! We will produce and hold fabrics for our customers for up to 90 days after the goods are ready to ship! We will need to know this in advance so that we can quote accordingly to allow for this. You are our priority, always.

5.       Do you offer products made in the USA?

Yes, yes, and yes. We are proud to offer so many various things that are produced in America. We offer fabric, hardware, and labels that are made in America. Our military stock is almost entirely berry compliant. If you want to know if the fabric you need is produced domestically, call our team so that we can give you the most accurate information.

Nylons, Polys, and Cottons, Oh My!

by Annie 16. September 2015 09:38

We love woven fabrics at MMI and sometimes it’s important to stop talking about all the new stuff in our industry and get back to talking about what makes us who we are.  Cottons, nylons, and polyesters come in so many different shapes, sizes, and colors that it is hard for us to talk about just one. We can provide you with over 50 stock fabrics, but we also specialize in custom woven fabrics that are dyed and finished to meet your specifications.

10oz single fill duck, 1050D Ballistic Nylon, and 70D Polyester are just a few of our favorites. Those are such a small sampling of our commercial inventory, without even dipping into our military stock and customs. We know that our customers have many questions from lead time to dye warehouses, so check out our FAQ’s or give us a call and we can expand on anything you are unclear on.

Along with the fabrics we provide, we are proud of the fact we offer additional value added services. Custom specific stocking programs gives you the ability to have the fabric while not having to worry about where to put it. No matter where you are in the process, MMI wants you to have the best finished products as possible. With our decades of experience, we have seen it all. From commodity to custom, large volume to relatively small, we have the expertise to source your finished products and deliver them to you in a cost effective manner.

End of story, we will work as hard as we can to find out what you need, and how we can accommodate you. And if we can’t get you exactly what you want, when you need it we will try and find someone who can.

Call us at 440.899.8050 or send us a quick email to info@mmitextiles.com so that we can start working together on your project.

MMI Textiles, Inc. exhibited at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market for the first time last week! Our team traveled to Salt Lake City for the four day show geared towards all things outside. Companies from around the world travel to this show to find out what new innovations and products are making their way on to the outdoor scene.

We took this opportunity to show case our impressive products like Unequal® Military and our digital print capabilities to companies who could be utilizing them for their tactical and hunting needs.

The show was an exciting experience for MMI and we look forward to being back next year. In the meantime, to find out more about MMI and all of our offerings, call our team at 440.899.8050 or email us at info@mmitextiles.com

Digital Printing at MMI...

by Annie 4. August 2015 11:48

Exciting things are happening at MMI Textiles! See below to read a recent post on Soldier Systems highlighting our digital printing capabilities --

 

This sample of Valdyr camouflage was digitally printed on Durastretch 520V by MMI Textiles. You may recognize the pattern from Revision Military’s Kinetic Operations Suit built for USSOCOM’s TALOS program.

The Durastretch 520V is actually a lighterwight fabric than you’d think. It’s a Berry compliant, 5.3 oz, 90% Nylon/10% Spandex ripstop, stretch fabric. I’m hoping to see someone make something out of it soon (hint, hint Trey and Tom!).

MMI Textiles offers a variety of fabric printing capabilities including the digital print option seen above. 

Be sure to visit them at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, August 5th-8th in Salt Lake City, Utah – Booth #355-304.

Urban Tactical Wolf Gray

by Annie 22. July 2015 09:46

The tactile environment is always changing and evolving, and MMI Textiles, Inc. is committed to stay up to date with what is current. The new color, “wolf gray” was created within the industry to be less intimidating than black, camouflage and ranger green.

 

The urban tactical wolf gray is popular within the DEA, FBI, SWAT, and other law enforcement officers. Wolf gray is meant to look like wet concrete, near the color values of asphalt, reflective glass, and steel. It is adaptive for a variety of lightconditions when you want to blend in during the daytime and for concealment at night.

 

All of our products meet military specifications and are Berry compliant. We stock 500D and 1000D Nylon/Mil-spec, Nylon webbing in a variety of widths, Nylon sew on Hook and Loop, and raschel mesh.

To find out more about Wolf gray or purchase fabric in this color, call 440.899.8050 or email info@mmitextiles.com
