LOS ANGELES — Textile mills are trying to overcome challenges created by rising costs, tepid consumer sales and a shrinking customer base as they prepare to show their latest offerings at the upcoming Los Angeles International Textile Show.
Highlighting fabrics for the spring-summer 2012 season, the semiannual expo will be held March 28 to 30 at the California Market Center, featuring mills that hail from such diverse locales as California, North Carolina, Canada, Australia and Spain.
