    That was a very nice video. I worked in the corrugated box industry for a long time, and some of the processes (and machines) were quite similar to what I've seen in our industry.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Oh my gosh, what an amazing video. Sure makes me appreciate the prices of fabrics more.
    We have cotton fields not far from us here in Ariz. & have seen those huge bales in the fields waiting for the trucks.

    Thanks for sharing this video.

    I LOVE the "How It's Made" stuff. Things like this just fascinate me. Thank you so much for sharing. I live in AR & we are a cotton growing state too so appreciated that. I guess $11-$13/yard is pretty cheap after all!!

    That was a very interesting video - thank you for sharing it. I do find it interesting with all the technical stuff involved in the whole printing process as shown - the video was taken by the CEO on his cell phone.

    Loved this. I worked for Shaw Industries for 25 years in two types of yarn mills. Most people have no idea how many processes it takes to produce carpet ready to lay down. My fave job was quality control, it was so cool to watch raw goods come in the receiving door and go out shipping ready to be tufted and printed.
