    Yes, good point. I misspoke in that they are "not a mill" at all, they do produce some workwear and highly specialized fabrics (like airbag fabric etc.). What I meant, however, they are mostly known as a yarn producer. Perhaps I should've said, AFAIK, the any of the hammock fabrics on the market are mostly likely not from Hyosung.

    Fair enough - perhaps let me ask this this way....

    Is there any literature showing where the fabrics that we are using are made and manufactured? I took a peek at DWG, hence my question, but I don't even recall seeing anything on RSBTR

    Not that I am aware of. Fabric sourcing and similar etc. is extremely important to any of our businesses, so the specifics of such are typically internal.

    Is the DH a double layer?

    Respectfully, it depends on your definition of mill. We buy fabric rolls from Hyosung. It's not a final tissue like in a hammock etc but we buy fabric rolls from them that we use with another few products to make a final package.

    Sure, as clarified in future posts, you are right. I was meaning to reference the fabrics in question.

    Interesting thing is manufacturers in many industries can make a few tweaks and call the product another name and sell through different retailers. For example, Whirlpool can make basically the sam washer with 3 minor changes and give it 3 different model numbers and sell it through 3 different retailers: Lowes, Sears, and Home Depot for example. Confusing for the consumer to say the least. I have the opinion that this is happening in the fabric cord world after working with them in my current job.

    So is there anybody that can give us a definitive answer? Supposedly there's only a half a dozen mills globally that are even able to produce high-end fabrics like we use.

    Who does Rip Stop By The Role contract to manufacture their fabrics through?

    Who does Dutchware Gear/DutchClips contract to manufacturer their fabrics?
