News Alert! Price of Cotton to Rise

Cotton Prices Rising Sharply

The price of cotton from Pakistan rose 40% in the past 2 months and globally it has risen 15% in the same time frame. This was driven by an increase in demand coupled with poor weather in Asia.  

It should also be noted that world cotton production is expected to fall short of the global demand in the current crop year at ends July 2010. Industry experts believe that price increases will be passed on from the manufacturers beginning in March or April.

The greatest price increases will be seen in the 100% cotton tee and polo shirts.
