LOS ANGELES — An uptick in business and a resurgence in domestic manufacturing as apparel companies seek sourcing options closer to home is fueling confidence for textile firms gearing up for the Los Angeles International Textile Show, set to run March 10 to 12 at the California Market Center.
The turnaround is also prompting some companies to expand. Asher Fabric Concepts in Los Angeles is opening a 500-square-foot retail outlet across from its showroom to meet demand and help small designers with their minimums.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly.
