Simply said, you get what you pay for. I was buying an American flag for our corporate office at a mass retailer on Sunday. I happened to “stumble” across a window covering area and saw panels in packages for as little as $8. Since I’m in that business, I just had to look further and get an understanding of what I was seeing.
The ready-made “package” market has come a long way since we started in business. The fabrics that are used in packaged /readymade draperies are using fabrics that are made overseas. Many of the fabrics that custom draperies use are also made overseas because this is just a big part of business and hard to avoid. But this is where the similarities end.
