All of the outerwear is Asia production. Prices would double to produce domestically. In an ideal world I would love to be U.S.A, U.S.A. but it's not feasible at the prices I want to be, at retail.
Zippers are Talon. All trims are developed with my factory which makes life so much easier.
YKK is a pain to deal with at small quantities.
Riris are beautifull zippers but not cost efficient unless I'm down for $$$$$ retail prices. I know W + H use them and Ever (Ever's prices are going up, up up!), and there perfect for their products, I just don't think a Riri zipper on a Rokara garment is the basis for selling that piece.
I've sampled with Lampo's and predye they look excellent. After dye...uuuhhh!!!. If I start to piece dye garments I may utilize again.
