The scoop:
Friend of mine came up to the local Marden's (surplus store) where they
have fabric. Sometimes really nice fabric. Anyway, bought a few yards of
some trim, a sample of which is at http://www.mainefaire.com/jk1.jpg.
This trim is nice.

Friend emails me today and ask, desperately, for more info on the trim.

I go over to Marden's, expecting no info whatsoever and I find what I
expect. I look on the trim that we selected (they still had some! ) and
no tag. All the trim there is attached to random bolts to organize
it.... none of the original packaging is available. No other info
available on it. I look at other colors.. I find another one! Same
pattern exactly, with different colors. It's a lot of it. I find A
TAG!!!! YEAH! IT's a tag! It's...'Made in Italy'. I now know, in
Italian, the article number, color and 'metri' of it. (size?)

I've scanned the tag: http://www.mainefaire.com/jk2.jpg

PLEASE If you have any contacts in the field or know alot or think you
can help, check out those two pictures. We're trying to find a
wholesaler who can get us that trim or to contact the manufacturer
themselves to purchase this trim en masse. (100's of yards at a time).
If you can help, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.
