ODM have been following the price of cotton over the past few weeks with great interest. Some of our suppliers are talking about 15-20% increases in the coming weeks for cotton based products – box in graph below shows extremely steep increase this November.

We are seeing an interesting trend in Promotional Tshirts – far more enquiries for 160 GSM.   Last year we rarely did less than 180 GSM for Promotional T’s.. GSM = Grams per Square Meter.

Look forward to your comments and predictions for this blog.  More on oil (plastics) and steel later….
