We have contacted all textile mills in the Cafta DR region known to us to make fabrics similar to the subject fabrics and listed in detail in the Otexa website. None has indicated an ability to or interest in supplying these fabrics. We also contacted the three associations representing the U.S. textile industry and neither they nor any of their extensive number of members has communicated to us any interest in supplying the subject fabrics.
