About DS Textile Solutions

DS Textile Solutions was established in 2016 by Deborah Shulton. The company was created primarily to create and deliver bespoke Fabric Appreciation Workshops to apparel buying and design teams. Having worked as a fabric specialist in retail for over 25 years followed by 5 years working in education it became clear to Deborah that there was a gap in the market for Fabric Appreciation Workshops that were aimed specifically to the commercial requirements of buying and design teams in contrast to some of the more in-depth technical courses that were already on offer at a number of academic institutions. 

DS Textile Solutions also offers Fabric technical services including establishing and implementing fabric buying procedures, driving key fabric developments with fabric mills and interpreting fabric test reports and offering recommendations for overcoming issues.
