The relationship between the FLN and TALA expands FLN’s Industry Network Alliances that include several textile associations and industry publications. TALA serves California's apparel and textile industries by providing a forum for businesses globally.
Its mission is to provide valuable business resources to the world of textile companies, sales reps, manufacturers, importers, agents, and allied associations, as well as to navigate the landscape of world trade. The TALA website contains direct links to all of its member companies.
“We want to do a better job of keeping the industry informed---the stronger TALA is, the stronger the industry is. This strategic partnership with the FLN will advance that goal,” notes Brian Weitman, Chairman of TALA.
FLN is providing a Portal Page to highlight TALA’s links to Southern California’s apparel and textile industries, which include access to its member companies consisting of distributors that offer short-run fabrics, supporting professional services and TALA’s ‘One-2-One’ Matches. With easy access to either FLN’s popular Searchable Indexes or TALA’s membership, the Portal Page makes it convenient to locate all types of fabrics, from fashion fabrics to innovative technical textile products and industry related services.
“The relationship between TALA and the FabricLink Network is a winner for both TALA and the FLN,” explains Kathlyn Swantko, president of FLN. “The combined platform is a valuable networking tool, where designers and product development people can search for ideas, find suppliers and locate thousands of fabrics relating to both fashion and innovative technical applications.”
Since the relationship between TALA and the FLN involves trade-to-trade networking and marketing, the TALA Portal Page and key links from the FLN to the TALA website appear on TheTechnicalCenter.com (TTC), FLN’s trade-to-trade website.
Accessing Partner Resources from TTC Website:
The TALA “Red Bar” logo-link in the center of the TTC homepage and the “Red Box” logo-link on the TTC’s Apparel homepage takes visitors to the TALA Portal Page on TTC, which provides general information on the services TALA has to offer, along with direct links to the TALA website. The TALA Portal Page makes it easy and convenient to navigate to either the TALA website for generic fashion fabrics, or to navigate TTC’s left hand Searchable Indexes, which can be used for finding innovative technical textiles across a broad array of specialty fabrics including Apparel, Sports Textiles, Home Furnishings, Safety & Protection, Industrial and Medical applications.
