China Linen Announces Recent Insider Purchase

There is an old saying, "Everything in life is location, location, location!" That is certainly true of the textile industry, and wholesale fabric importer Ramtex, Inc. is a testament to this. Ramtex maintains dye houses and a cut and sew facility in China, which allows for convenient China to China shipping for its clients, but it also maintains a stockpile of hundreds of thousands of yards of fabric in a Los Angeles fabric warehouse. That decision has enabled Ramtex, Inc. to respond to orders much faster and with more consistency than the competition. Indeed, there have been many instances in which a business ordered fabric wholesale from another importer, only to come to Ramtex, Inc. when that first company failed to meet deadlines. Now these businesses are loyal customers of Ramtex, Inc., returning time and again for all their wholesale fabric needs.

Natural fibres have recently attracted scientist's attraction because of their advantages from the environmental stand point. However,almost all research has been towards cellulose from vegetable sources without taking into account on their interesting compounds like keratin,which can found  in feathers. In spite of its strength, low density and biodegradability, keratin has been studied only for few areas of application. But in near future we can expect more application for chicken fibre.
