Notes from Mary Carter, Buyer for Exotic Silks, Regarding the Increase in Silk Prices

Currently, our sources predict that even with the new cocoon crop in Spring we may not realize a significant decline in prices. Energy costs have risen astronomically, as have labor costs. Workers have many other employment options, and fewer choose to work in silk factories. This is going to continue to be a problem with scarf hand hemming in particular. No one wants to do it, particularly young people who can find more lucrative employment elsewhere. Another important factor is the exchange rate, which has changed drastically over the past few years. For these reasons, we will move aggressively with purchasing in order to provide the lowest possible prices for our customers.
